# Beamer - rounded corners around blocks and footnotes

My aim is to get rounded corners without shadow ergo I used the following command \setbeamertemplate{blocks}[rounded][shadow=false]

but it seems like that this option affects the footnotes as well, i.e. the footnotes behaves like footnotes in a "column"-environment is this bug on my side and is there away to avoid this behavior and still get rounded corners around blocks?

Exempel.:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{boxes}
\usecolortheme{crane}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{block}{This a title for the block}
This is the text inside block.\footnote{Footnotes are possiable as well}
\end{block}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

• Please provide a minimal working example :) – Herr K. Aug 19 '14 at 2:01

The following gives want I think you wanted:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{boxes}
\usecolortheme{crane}

• your example does work, could you explain to me why it's necessary to use footnotemark instead of the normal footnote-command -- is this a bug in beamer (esp. because it means that someone has to use the footnotemark through the complete presentation)? – jlk Oct 8 '15 at 0:48
• @harry heller I cannot explain in detail. The trick I was using (replacing \footnote by \footnotemark and \footnotetext) is rather standard for footnotes in minipages or tables. What exactly happens in beamer I cannot fully explain. – Denis Oct 8 '15 at 9:05
