As per How to Remove Footers of LaTeX Beamer Templates?, I can replace default footer with page numbers as follows:
%gets rid of bottom navigation bars
%gets rid of navigation symbols
But this is still unsatisfactory to me. I would like to completely remove the footer in some cases.
For instance, when I use the
draft option, the footer will be opaque and completely covered. If some bullet points end up in that region, even partly, they can't be visible then.
So how can I completely remove the footer in Beamer presentations?
