# Metro style Beamer theme with in-built “Segoe UI” font

Has anyone come across a Beamer theme having Microsoft Metro presentation style, in-built with "Segoe UI" font?

Following my previous Beamer themes based on PowerPoint, I created a Metro style theme, based on the one you linked. It is available at https://bitbucket.org/marczellm/beamerports.

You can ask the theme to load the Microsoft font by passing it the SegoeUI option. It needs fontspec, so compile with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX.

### Interesting parts from the code

For the block width to match the frametitle colorbox, I used the answer from Make frametitle and block the same width in Beamer.

I needed to redefine the logo handling mechanism like this:

\newcommand{\metro@logo}{}
\AtBeginDocument{\setbeamertemplate{logo}{}}


in order to be able to put the logo at different places.

I reproduced the navigation symbols from the PowerPoint template with TikZ and hyperref:

\newcommand{\metro@navigation}{% this uses the commands defined in beamerbasenavigation.sty
\ifmetronav
\begin{tikzpicture}[white, very thick, arrows=-{Straight Barb[length=3pt]}]
\draw (.18,0) -- (-.18,0);
