Can you give me a link to the documentation of \usefonttheme? Thank you very much.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! I don't believe that there is a specific documentation on \usefonttheme alone, but rather contained as (sub)section in the the usual beamer documentation. – user31729 Nov 8 '14 at 21:41

    You didn't say but this is a beamer command see texdoc beamer section 18.1 – David Carlisle Nov 8 '14 at 21:41

If you're looking for all possible font themes you can use, or looking for what's in those themes becaue you want to roll your own, you won't find this in the definition of \userfonttheme.

The themes are defined in their own files named beamerfonttheme‹themename›.sty; beamer's own come in a subdirectory themes/font, but that's not neccessary: \usefonttheme is a very thin wrapper around \usepackage.

FWIW, the font themes that currently come with beamer (i.e. files in $TEXMF/latex/beamer/themes/font) are:

  • default
  • serif
  • professionalfonts
  • structurebold
  • structureitalicserif
  • structuresmallcapsserif

and they are documented in section 18.1 of the userguide.


If you want to see different combinations of Beamer in action, here you can switch and see how different combinations of style, color and fonts in LaTeX looks like: http://deic.uab.es/~iblanes/beamer_gallery/individual/default-default-default.html
