When creating a beamer presentation in LaTeX, I have so many sections and frames, that the headline with the navigation bar is too long for the frame. Also, the table of contents is too long. I know that I can change the fontsize for the TOC, but is there a possibility to arrange the TOC in 2 (or more) columns? And is it possible to arrange the headline in more then 1 (say, 2) lines?

Working example:

\documentclass[ngerman]{beamer}
\usetheme{Frankfurt}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame} \tableofcontents[hideallsubsections] \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\section{Abschnitt} \subsection{Abschnitt} \begin{frame} Abschnitt \end{frame}
\end{document}

EDIT: The first question has been solved, thx to samcarter. For the second question the code in the given link does not work for me. Since I am using the theme Frankfurt, I thought I had to exchange \progressbaroptions{headline=sections} by \Frankfurtoptions{headline=sections} but this does not work. If I leave away that line, no headline at all is shown.

  • Welcome to TeX.SE! How long are your Beamer presentations? Unless they're several hours long, is there a benefit -- to your audience, and to you -- to having so many sectioning commands? Not every frame needs a sectioning command.

  • @Mico: Thx. The presentation I am now working on will be about 3-4 hours long (maybe even longer). Not like in the example above, every section consits of more than one frame.

  • Hi! Your question contains two separate questions. As far as I see, the first question about multi-column ToC is answered in Beamer: Vertical alignment of multi-column ToC, the second question about multi-line navigation bullets in Navigation bar is too long on progressbar theme, can it wrap?. (Thanks to samcarter for pointing these out.)

  • @Martin: I was accepting your edit meanwhile mods merge your account. Please, notice that progress bar theme is a bit different with respect to themes native in Beamer. Hence, with Frankfurt, you don't have \Franfkfurtoptions way to customize the theme. The beameruserguide will tell you how to do. Mar 21, 2014 at 15:09

Two column ToC:

The two column ToC can be done as I posted in this solution: https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/136082/36296

Multiline navigation bar

you can find some examples about a navigation bar with multiple lines for example in the following questions:

Separate Beamer navigation bar for some portions of presentation

Navigation bar is too long on progressbar theme, can it wrap?

  • (I cannot write a comment, so I am posting this as an answer, maybe someone can write that as a comment and delete this answer) @samcarter: Thx, the two column ToC works. In the second link, the solutions is to only write a part of the navigationbar first and the second part after. That works but does not fully solve my question. The third code did not work. Since I am using the theme Frankfurt, I thought I had to exchange \progressbaroptions{headline=sections} by \Frankfurtoptions{headline=sections} but this does not work. If I leave away that line, no headline at all is shown.
