I'm building for my university a template using the Latex beamer package.

I had no problems to build the template for the title slide and for the general slides. However, for the last slide they would like a template that looks as in the image attached.

It seems to me to be very simple, but I have not found a way to create just this empty blue box (that should not have any effect on the other parts of the slide) and have the text start with quite a large left margin (I would like to create this as a template and not have the user adjust the margin for the last slide in his document).

Could you give me hints on how to realise this?

You may need to adjust the numbers according to the geometry and margins you use for your template

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{paperwidth=254mm,paperheight=190.5mm,left=0mm,right=0mm,top=0mm,bottom=0mm} 
\setbeamersize{text margin left=17.4mm,text margin right=10.6mm}

\newcommand{\myendpage}[1]{
    \begin{frame}[plain]
       \setlength{\unitlength}{1mm}
        \begin{picture}(254,190.5)(17.4,0)
            \put(0,0){\color{blue}\rule{.5\paperwidth}{200mm}}
            \put(140,110.7){%
                \begin{minipage}[b][45mm][t]{226mm}
                \usebeamerfont{title}{\raggedright {#1} \par}
                \end{minipage}
            }   
        \end{picture}
    \end{frame}
}

\begin{document}
    \myendpage{test \\[1cm] test \\[1cm] test}
\end{document}

  • Thanks! It works pretty well. I replaced what you do with picture, by using a beamercolorbox, but otherwise it's pretty much the same.
