I am making a beamer presentation and I found that the horizontal distance between items and subitems is bigger than I expected. I tried to change it by using \addtolength, but the lines of the subitem are misaligned. How can I change it?

    A MWE would help. I was going to recommend using the enumitem package, but this post says that beamer and enumitem do not play well together. On the other hand, this same post gives you a solution.

You have to change the value of \leftmarginii, the 2nd level indent. Here, after showing the beamer default, I made it half the value of \leftmargini, the 1st level indent.

\documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
text
\begin{itemize}
\item item
\begin{itemize}
\item subitem
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}

\leftmarginii=.5\leftmargini\relax
text
\begin{itemize}
\item item
\begin{itemize}
\item subitem
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}
