Is there a command which is the reverse of \only?

E.g. if I want to strike out something in a table I want to strike out one cell in slide three like so:

... & \only<3->{Data}\reverseofonly<3->{\sout{Data}} & ...

I have tried with \invisible, but it reserves space, thus widening my table column since it has to reserve space for the striked out "Data" prior to slide 3.

    I think you are after \alt: have a look on the manual for examples. – Claudio Fiandrino Jan 24 '14 at 10:10

For details, see beameruserguide.pdf, p. 86, paragraph \renewcommand<>






\sout<1>{Striked on 1st slide}
\sout{Striked always}
\sout<2->{Striked on 2nd slide}



Of course, you can simulate the same effect by using \alt directly, but it gets annoying:


\alt<1>{\sout{Striked on 1st slide}}{Striked on 1st slide}
\sout{Striked always}
\alt<2->{\sout{Striked on 2nd slide}}{Striked on 2nd slide}


EDIT: As pointed out by Andrew Stacey, you can use directly

\only<2->{\sout}{Striked on 2nd slide}`

However, I don't like this notation myself: the text is not a 2nd parameter of \only, it's a 1st parameter of \sout.

    Though you could do \only<2>{\sout}{Stricken on 2nd slide} – Andrew Stacey Jan 24 '14 at 13:05

    @tohecz Used your initial solution, but forgot to mark it as solved. Thanks. – abondoa Feb 19 '14 at 10:38
