How do you produce a navigation bar containing the sections and subsection but excluding the subsubsections? I'm using PaloAlto theme.

1 Answer 1


You can set the beamer templates subsubsection in sidebar and subsubsection in sidebar shaded so that they don't insert the subsubsection title:


\setbeamertemplate{subsubsection in sidebar}
\setbeamertemplate{subsubsection in sidebar shaded}


\section{test section one}
\subsection{test subsection one}
\subsubsection{test subsubsection one}
\subsubsection{test subsubsection teo}
\section{test section two}
\subsection{test subsection two}


Here's the first frame of the resulting document, showing the sidebar without the subsubsection titles:
