Could I know how to set the width of the left margin of the Berkeley theme please? (that is where the section titles appear)

1 Answer 1


The width of the bar can be set with the width= option passed to the \usetheme{Berkeley} command. In this example I've set it unreasonably wide for demonstration purposes. You can set the size of the text in the sidebar using \setbeamerfont{section in sidebar}{size= ...}.

\setbeamerfont{section in sidebar}{size=\Huge}

\begin{frame}{A frame}

output of code

  • Thanks could you also tell me how to set the text size of only the text that appear in that bar (the section titles) please?
