Is it possible, that one of my slide in beamer is 11 pt and I want 10 pt font in other slide?

  • Yes. Does this hold for everything on the frame, including the frame title, and footer, or just the "internal content" of the frame? – Werner Nov 24 '14 at 23:18

    @Ahmad It makes it much harder to answer if you don't provide a test document. Look at werner's answer, he had to write a complete document to test the answer, you should have provided that. – David Carlisle Nov 24 '14 at 23:42

You can switch to a different font size outside the frame, and specify the scope using a group:

enter image description here

\documentclass[11pt]{beamer}
\let\Tiny\tiny% http://tex.stackexchange.com/q/58087/5764
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
  \frametitle{This is a title 11pt}
  Here is some content on the slide
  \[
    f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c
  \]
  Some more content
\end{frame}

\small% \small in 11pt base font is 10pt
\begin{frame}
  \frametitle{This is a title 10pt}
  Here is some content on the slide
  \[
    f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c
  \]
  Some more content
\end{frame}
\endgroup

\begin{frame}
  \frametitle{This is a title 11pt}
  Here is some content on the slide
  \[
    f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c
  \]
  Some more content
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Above I've specified \small, which defaults to 10pt font under an 11pt document class option.

Since each of the frame components use template-specific settings, they need to be adjusted separately. However, the above technique is an easy one to update the internal frame content only.

  • This solution is very similar in nature to what is suggested in How to change font size mid document? – Werner Nov 24 '14 at 23:41

    Sadly this affects only the main text in the frame. If you have nested itemize lists, for example, the nested items are not affected. – Frigo Sep 12 '19 at 10:29
