# Beamer repeated citation new number

I am discussing a topic on multiple frames, and I want to cite the original article on each slide using footfullcite. However beamer increases the citation number on each frame. Is there a way to tell beamer to increase it only if I refer to a new article?

Here is my approach:

\documentclass[mathserif]{beamer}
\usepackage[style=verbose,backend=biber]{biblatex}

\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]
\setbeamertemplate{caption}[numbered]

\renewcommand{\footnotesize}{\tiny}

\bibliography{refs}

\begin{document}
\frame{\frametitle{Title}
\footfullcite{art}
}
\frame{\frametitle{Title}
\footfullcite{art}
}

\end{document}

• try \addtocounter{footnote}{-1} where you do not want the counter to be increased – samcarter is at topanswers.xyz Jun 2 '14 at 11:43

Add

\addtocounter{footnote}{-1}

wherever you do not want the counter to be increased

I think you can also use

\footnotemark[\value{footnote}]


to show the current value of the counter without increasing it. And I guess you could use it to indicate a given value as well.
