I'm using beamer to create frames. I don't want frame numbers and I want to allow for frame breaks:

\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]{My title}

does work, and

\begin{frame}[noframenumbering]{My title}

How do I combine both?

\begin{frame}[noframenumbering allowframebreaks]{My title}


\begin{frame}[noframenumbering][allowframebreaks]{My title}


\begin{frame}[noframenumbering, allowframebreaks]{My title}

only enables the first option.

  • Which theme are you using? You mean you want to suppress the numbering from the footline? Apr 9, 2014 at 17:31
  • I'm using Madrid theme. I want to suppress the numbering in the frame title. Suggested answer does not work: \begin{frame}[noframenumbering, allowframebreaks]{My title} Apr 10, 2014 at 9:19

1 Answer 1


You want to say


Sample output


\usepackage{lipsum} %for dummy text





However noframenumbering is not an option that removes the continuation numbers from these slides. For that you should adjust the beamer template for frametitle continuation:

\setbeamertemplate{frametitle continuation}{}

either globally or restricted to a group for the particular frame:

Unnumbered sample


\usepackage{lipsum} %for dummy text


{\setbeamertemplate{frametitle continuation}{}


  • Thanks Andrew, suggested answer still doesn't suppress the number right in front of frame's title. I just ran your code and got Title I, Title II and Title III in each of the frame's title. Apr 10, 2014 at 9:23

  • Thanks, it worked! I just wonder then what noframenumbering means. Apr 10, 2014 at 11:30
  • @cacosomoza noframenumbering prevents the incrementing the frame counter on the current frame. A theme such as Boadzilla shows these numbers in the footline. When there are frame breaks the counter still increments in the subsequent parts of the frame, so it does not seem to be doing anything useful. I included in the answer as it was the option you mentioned in your question. Jun 15, 2016 at 16:24
