  • Do you want a page after showing the first item, then to go back to the itemize page, or do you just want the itemize to appear one line at a time?

Using label=<name> as an option for frame, you can use <name> as a target for \hyperlink; in the following example, each item on the first frame is a hyperlink to a different frame, in which you can describe the concept. Additionally, each of the explanatory frames has a "Go back" button (another hyperlink) allowing you to return to the enumerated list:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}[label=init]
\frametitle{Cryptography}

\begin{enumerate}
\item \hyperlink{stream}{stream cipher}
\item \hyperlink{block}{block cipher}
\end{enumerate}

\end{frame}

\begin{frame}[label=stream]
\frametitle{Description of stream cipher}
test for stream

\vfill
\hyperlink{init}{\beamerbutton{Go back}}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}[label=block]
\frametitle{Description of block cipher}
test for block
\vfill
\hyperlink{init}{\beamerbutton{Go back}}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

After discussion in chat:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Madrid}

\AtBeginSection[]
{
  \begin{frame}<beamer>
  \frametitle{Outline}
  \tableofcontents[currentsection]
  \end{frame}
}

\begin{document}

\section{Cryptography}
\subsection{Stream cipher}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Stream cipher}
 Description for stream cipher.
\end{frame}
\subsection{Block cipher}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Block cipher}
 Description for block cipher.
\end{frame}

\end{document}

  • @Alex in the first slide item 1 is alone. Please describe in more detail exactly what you want. Sep 3, 2013 at 3:15
  • it's somewhat like highlight "stream cipher" and then go to show what stream cipher is. @GonzaloMedina

  • @ALex Ah, now I see. Let me update my answer. Sep 3, 2013 at 3:20
  • @Alex please see my updated answer; in the first frame, each item is a hyperlink to another frame where you can place the description, Is it something like that waht you want? Sep 3, 2013 at 3:25
