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.

Probably specifying the optional short author list will do the trick:

\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..

  • That comment would make a great edit to your answer, whereas "probably" makes it sound like you just typed it in without testing. (but you did already get my up vote; halo effect from the green check) May 11, 2011 at 10:54
  • @Matthew: I've amended my answer.. Sorry for being a bit vague.
