I wish to display italics like this number 2 in italics that are used in article documents, but within a beamer document with the default use and font themes.

  • Just for a particular individual character or are you trying to change all fonts to italics? – Gonzalo Medina Mar 19 '14 at 13:40
  • Actually it was meant for a particular part of the frame, but a global option seems interesting as well. – Toño Mar 19 '14 at 13:56

I'm not sure about your real needs, but this seems to do:


\frametitle{This is \italnum{1}}

A number $2$ and also italic \italnum{2}


enter image description here

If you need it working also in math mode, let me know.

  • Yes, this is precisely what I was looking for, since it also works for the \titlepage components. Thanks a lot! – Toño Mar 21 '14 at 10:37
