# How can I remove author and co-authors from a navigation bar in beamer presentation?

There are 6 co-authors of my presentation. How can I remove all their names from the navigation bar and leave them on the title page? Thanks for your help

• Which beamer theme are you using? You can try a different beamer theme that does not contain the author names in the navigation bar. May 11, 2011 at 9:32
• I am using PaloAlto. The answer below is working fine, but thanks anyway for a suggestion. May 11, 2011 at 9:46

\author[First Author]{First Author \and Second Author \and Third Author}

Edit: As discussed below, the suggested solution works for my setup and I would guess that it does so for most setups. More specifically, it works if the theme (or you yourself manually) uses \insertshortauthor to display the author list in the navigation bar (header, footer, etc.). The same goes for \insertshorttitle and \insertshortdate..
• Well, it works for my setup. I don't know if it will for Marcin's theme etc., but I would guess so. Hence the "probably" :-) It works if the theme (or you yourself manually) uses \insertshortauthor to display the author list in the navigation bar (header, footer, etc.). The same goes for \insertshorttitle and \insertshortdate.. May 11, 2011 at 9:46
