Is the Antibes theme the problem here? according to this post, the solution I put in my MWE (below) should do the trick but it doesn't. This answer doesn't work either. I got no error whatsoever, it just compiles flawlessly but it outputs only one slide. It should give three slides with the same page number (ie. 1/1). It's the same if I use Boadilla theme.

Any idea how to get the right output? thanks in advance for your support on this,


ps. I just left these packages to check that there was no conflict. I did several tests after commenting one by one and it seems that they are causing no problems at all.


    \setbeamertemplate{footline}[page number]
    \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}




    \patchcmd{\beamer@@tmpl@footline}% <cmd>
    {\insertframenumber}% <search>
    {\themultipleslide}% <replace>
    {}% <success>
    {}% <failure>
    \patchcmd{\beamer@@tmpl@footline}% <cmd>
    {\themultipleslide}% <search>
    {\insertframenumber}% <replace>
    {}% <success>
    {}% <failure>


        \item<1-> item 1
        \item<2-> item 2
        \item<3-> item 3

  • remove option "alowframebreaks". Slides will be numbered 1/1, 2/1 and 1/3. – Zarko Nov 5 '14 at 18:42
  • removing [allowframebreaks] produces the 3 slides but with 1/3, 2/3, 3/3, and it should be 1/3 for every slide, any idea what the problem is? – Gery Nov 5 '14 at 18:48
  • Maybe it's frame number rather than page number? – egreg Nov 5 '14 at 19:14
  • @egreg thanks! that was the problem, indeed, I confirm that I don't need the solutions I was trying, simply using frame number did the trick. If you put that as answer, I'll mark it as such. Thanks again. – Gery Nov 5 '14 at 20:42

In beamer, page number refers to the “physical” page number: any overlay increments the number.

You want to use frame number, that's incremented by \begin{frame}.
