# How can I get horizontal line of navigation dots in header of Singapore beamer theme?

I'm writing a presentation using the Singapore theme.

The dots in the navigation bar are appearing vertically (one below the other) rather than horizontally. This is consuming a lot of space of my frames and is even not looking good presentation wise.

I have seen presentations using this theme where the dots appear horizontally. How can I do this?

Use the compress option for the Singapore theme:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme[compress]{Singapore}

\begin{document}

\section{Test section one}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\section{Test section one}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}
\subsection{Test subsection}
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}

• A link to reference (where the option is explained) would be a nice touch. – arekolek Sep 11 '16 at 20:58
