# Dummy macro for ignoring beamer overlay [closed]

I would like a dummy macro that ignores overlay specification (from beamer) when the code is copy-pasted into another class.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\newcommand{\onslide}[1]{}
\begin{document}
\onslide<3-10>{test}
\end{document}


I have some text from a beamer presentation that will be included into an article or book document, and since it's a lot of code, I'd like to copy-paste it without having to manually remove all the overlay specifications.

In the given example, my goal is a macro that prints only the word "test" and nothing else, ignoring the <3-10> specification.
