How could I highlight only certain points in itemize environment. The examples I found here shows other parts also highlighted in the next slide. What I want is a single slide with one part highlighted and other blurred in the itemize environment.

You can use a TikZ \node and control the opacity using vopacity=`:



\item First item.
\item Second item.
\item Third item.
\tikz\node[opacity=0.2,align=left,inner xsep=0pt]
  \item Fourth item.
  \item Fifth item.
  \item Sixth item.}%


enter image description here

  • I don't want something like this. What I want is a "single slide" with say points 1,2,3 highlighted and say 4,5,6 blurred. This is to give an intuition that I am going to explain the following things in the coming slides...

  • @user3984 please explain exactly what you want. On slide 1 you see items 1,2 and 3 and items 4,5, and 6 are transparent, is that right? Then on the next slides what do you expect to see? Aug 12, 2013 at 2:37
