I have modified a theme (PaloAlto) in beamer in order to have my own theme, but I have not finished yet. I have two colored bars in top and left margins, an image in left upper corner and a transparent image in the center of all of the slides. What do I want now?

I want to put MYINSTITUTE (in white color) in the top margin bar only in the (first) title slide. How can I do this? (You can use PaloAlto theme to explain your answer. Thank you in advance.)

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{IPN} %My theme based on PaloAlto

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{default}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{fancybox} % To use boxes
\usepackage{tikz} % To put transparent logo on the center of slide
\usepackage{graphicx} % To include graphics
\usepackage{ragged2e} % To justify text

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{} %no navigation symbols on right bottom side of slide
\setbeamercovered{dynamic}%{transparent} % Transparent paused text


%%% Seccion del titulo y autor
\title{MYTITLE}
\subtitle[MYSUBTITLE]{MYSUBTITLE}
\author{MYSELF}
\institute{MYINSTITUTE}
\date{\today}
%%%
\begin{document}
  \begin{frame}
     \titlepage
  \end{frame}
\end{document}
  • Well, and what is inside IPN??? It's difficult to answer without it – user31729 Nov 9 '14 at 9:03
  • @ChristianHupfer Basically the same than in PaloAlto theme. – R Parada Nov 10 '14 at 5:46

I would use the argument of \begin{frame} to set the frame title/top bar

\documentclass{beamer}
%\usetheme{IPN} %My theme based on PaloAlto
\usetheme{PaloAlto}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{default}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{fancybox} % To use boxes
\usepackage{tikz} % To put transparent logo on the center of slide
\usepackage{graphicx} % To include graphics
\usepackage{ragged2e} % To justify text

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{} %no navigation symbols on right bottom side of slide
\setbeamercovered{dynamic}%{transparent} % Transparent paused text

\newcommand{\myinstitute}{MYINSTITUTE}

%%% Seccion del titulo y autor
\title{MYTITLE}
\subtitle[MYSUBTITLE]{MYSUBTITLE}
\author{MYSELF}
\institute{\myinstitute}
\date{\today}
%%%
\begin{document}
  \begin{frame}{\myinstitute}
     \titlepage
  \end{frame}
\begin{frame}
  Other content
\end{frame}
\end{document}

enter image description here

  • Thank you very much, that gave me an idea to solve it. Best regards! – R Parada Nov 10 '14 at 7:02
  • @R.Parada: In your first message you complained ;-) Well, you did not write, that you want to remove the Institute title from the text content... – user31729 Nov 10 '14 at 13:09
  • Righ, sorry. \title{MYTITLE} \subtitle[MYSUBTITLE]{MYSUBTITLE} \author{MYSELF} %\institute{MYINSTITUTE} \date{\today} \begin{document} \begin{frame}{\Huge {\hspace {0.25cm}MYINSTITUTE}\\ \large \hspace{0.9cm}MYFACULTY} \titlepage \end{frame} \end{document} Thank you very much. Best regards. – R Parada Nov 10 '14 at 19:01
  • I do not know why it appears unformatted. I left four spaces before writing code. Sorry. – R Parada Nov 10 '14 at 19:09
