# Align the author names in Handout of Beamer by Tabular environment

Consider the following framework:

\documentclass[9pt,handout]{beamer}

\title[]{Title}
\author[]{
Author 1: "name of author 1"\\
Author 2: "name of author 2"}
\institute[]{}
\date[]{}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

\end{document}


The problem is I would like to align the author names such that the two colon marks lie on the same line. I have tried this:

 \author{%
\begin{tabular}{rl}
Author 1:& "name of author 1" \tabularnewline
Author 2:& "name of author 2"
\end{tabular}}


which I know by asking another question here and which works exactly as I want in the Article documentclass. However, it does not work in Handout of Beamer.

Simply put it inside the document and not in the preamble and it will work.

MWE:

\documentclass[9pt,handout]{beamer}

\begin{document}

\title[]{Title}
\author{%
\begin{tabular}{rl}
Author 1:& "name of author 1" \tabularnewline
Author 2:& "name of author 2"
\end{tabular}}
\institute[]{}
\date[]{}

\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

\end{document}


Output:

If you want to keep that code in the preamble, you can use \AtBeginDocument in this way

\documentclass[9pt,handout]{beamer}

\AtBeginDocument{%
\title[]{Title}
\author{%
\begin{tabular}{rl}
Author 1:& "name of author 1" \tabularnewline
Author 2:& "name of author 2"
\end{tabular}}
\institute[]{}
\date[]{}
}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

\end{document}
