I'm making a beamer presentation with lots of text in itemize. How to tell latex to move the text to next slide, if the text does not fit the current one? (of course, without creating a new slide)

Also, the apparent "duplicate" is about tables, and the answer did not help.

    You should use the option allowframebreaks inside your frame, it could help you: \begin{frame}[allowframebreaks] Contents of the frame \end{frame} – Aradnix Dec 15 '13 at 10:32
  • [Allowframebrakes] doesn't work. It shows first item of itemize on first slide, nest on on another one, and skips other. It's riddiculous that beamer itself cannot move the text to another slide. Every text editor can do that! – user19502 Dec 15 '13 at 11:43
  • You should rethink your presentation design. To much text is unreadable for users in the back of the room. What about this: Split your bullet list - one point per slide? Slides in beamer presentations are for free! Otherwise a presentation is maybe not the right tool to present your data - use an article instead. AND: you don't have to write every word on a slide; say the words in your talk (that is why you're actually there). For further information give handouts to your listeners. – schmendrich Dec 15 '13 at 12:24

    You DO realize it's not helpful in any matter, right? For god's sake, don't you think I know things you are trying to teach me? I'm asking why such a simple thing that works perfectly well in articles suddenly doesn't work in presentation. What if my presentation isn't for 5-year olds with a mental capacity and attention span of a goldfish, as you've seen to assume? Also, If the asker states it's not a duplicate, don't mark it as a duplicate. – user19502 Dec 15 '13 at 15:20

    Because the author pretty much designed the whole beamer to avoid such presentation style and promotes designing each slide individually. You can read the manual there is a huge section about why this is a bad idea. Hence, the mechanism for that is absent in the line of such view. – percusse Dec 15 '13 at 15:46
