I have a slide, that uses \pause and \alert, to successively uncover what I am talking about. Since the non-handout version is a bit long I'll just link it. Works superb. But going into handout mode produces the following:

As you can see, the \alert-s are shown in red, which is very confusing on the handout, as it was used to animate the thing. What is also confusing is that the itemize environment works as I would have expected, without showing using \alert on the text in handout. How can I have the handout version NOT show any red alerts? Thanks in advance!

\documentclass[handout]{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Sample side}
\framesubtitle{with a subtitle}

Start
\begin{itemize}[<+(1)-| alert@+(1)>]
\item  first item 
\vspace{1cm}
\item second item 
\vspace{1cm}
\item  third item
\end{itemize}
\pause
\alert<.(1)>{alert}
\pause

\alert<.(1)>{alert2}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

  • Do you want the handout to show the text of "alert" and "alert2"? Commented May 23, 2016 at 13:19
  • Yes, in black, like the list.

  • to remove the red highlighting from the handout, you can use \alert<.(1)|handout:0>{alert} or \action<alert@.(1)>{alert}

  • In case you want to remove content completely from the handout, you can use \only<beamer>{}


\documentclass[handout]{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Sample side}
\framesubtitle{with a subtitle}

Start
\begin{itemize}[<+(1)-| alert@+(1)>]
\item  first item 
\vspace{1cm}
\item second item 
\vspace{1cm}
\item  third item
\end{itemize}
\pause
\alert<.(1)|handout:0>{alert}
\pause
\action<alert@.(1)>{alert}
\pause

\only<beamer>{
    \alert<.(1)>{alert2}
}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
