In a presentation created with the beamer class, I'm using




style=verbose is required so that author, title and so on show up in the foot note and not just a number indicating the source.

However, on one slide a give an overview of different algorithms, which requires a lot of citations. Only for this slide I'd like to use \cite, which should give me e.g. [1] in the text, but no footnote. The problem is that thanks to style=verbose, \cite inserts author, title and so on instead of a short number.

How can I fix this?

  • If you change to style=numeric-comp and use \fullfootcite on all slides you want the verbose output you can use \cite on your overview slide. Jul 16 '13 at 14:35
  • I can't get fullfootciteto work. Do I need an additional import?

  • Works! You should post this as an answer.

            autocite=superscript, % apply options here

And when a full citation is necessary you can cite with
