I'm creating a beamer presentation and I want to use the \pause command but I want the text after the \pauses to be completely invisible not just transparent. Is there any way to do this? I tried the \setbeamercovered{invisible} command but it didn't change anything.


The default for beamer is \setbeamercovered{invisible}, but you may have used other themes or packages which have altered that setting and made \setbeamercovered{transparent}. You can override that again by issuing \setbeamercovered{invisible}at the right place in your presentation. I deliberately changed the setting at the beginning and overridden it later at the right place.


    \item Hello World!
    \item Example Text 1
    \item Example Text 2

    \item ahaha
    \item aaahhaha


You should get this:

    @GonzaloMedina -- Yes, you're right, the OP is just keeping people here guessing! No MWE? – AboAmmar Oct 1 '15 at 23:03

    I feel so dumb! I had a '\setbeamercovered{transparent}' farther down in my preamble than where I added the '\setbeamercovered{invisible}' I talked about in my question. Thank you guys for the help, everything is working nicely now! Sorry to keep you guys guessing. – ryan Oct 1 '15 at 23:22
