In the following code, I want to show item 5 in place of item 1. How I can fix that, or is it possible to change the name of an item? For example, in this case, the item point1 will be point5 in slide 5. For example, I can change the color of the item point1 in slide 5 (see the commented line).

\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc}%les accents pour mac
\usepackage{movie 15}
\section{section1 }
\frame[shrink]{\frametitle{Titre de la fenetre}
%\item<1-> \color<5>[rgb]{0,0.6,0} point1
\item<1-4> point1
\item<2-4> point2
\item<3-4> point3
\item<4> point4
\item<5> point5

  • My logic would go like this: \item<1-4,5>\visible<1-4>{point1}\visible<5>{point5}. But this will generate a blank space before point5.

  • @SvendTveskæg, I think that my example is very small. Please, ignore the negative comment. Let us work. Nov 15, 2013 at 6:43

    It is good practice to make ones code as simpel as possible when asking for help. Nov 15, 2013 at 7:02

    Indeed it is the packages I'm referring to. (When you get time to read the page I've linked to ("minimal" is hyperlinked), please do it.) Nov 15, 2013 at 7:47

I resolve the problem using \alt;

\item<2-4> point2
\item<3-4> point3
\item<4> point4
