# Question Related to Suppressing Navigation Circles in Beamer

This question is in reference to How to remove navigational circles and fit the navigation bar titles in Frankfurt beamer theme? (I would simply add a comment to diabonas' answer, but I don't have enough reputation - is there a way around this?)

Anyway, I wanted to achieve a similar result to the user who posted that question, and the solution provided works well, except I would prefer the most recently highlighted circle to remain highlighted whilst we set \miniframesoff. How could I go modifying the code to achieve this?

As I understand this you wish to still have the white dot for the current subsection, but all other subsection dots should be invisible. This can be achieved by using the beamer template mini frame in other subsection, which takes an optional pair of arguments [default][xx]. Here xx is a percentage, and these circles will be given a color that is xx percent of the foreground and 100-xx percent of the background. Thus putting xx to 0 yields invisible circles. Here is a sample image for the third subsection of the first section:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usetheme{Frankfurt}

\begin{document}

\setbeamertemplate{mini frame in other subsection}[default][0]

\section{Start}

\subsection{Sub1}

\begin{frame}
Text.
\end{frame}

\subsection{Sub2}

\begin{frame}

\end{frame}

\subsection{Sub3}
