In order to make items appear sequentially in beamer mode, I would typically use:

\item No.1 \pause
\item No.2 \pause
\item No.3 \pause

So I have to type '\pause' three times.

Is there instead something like:

\pauseall \begin{itemize}
\item No.1 
\item No.2 
\item No.3 

... which applies '\pause' to each item?


Yes. Consider the option [<+->] for itemize, enumerate, and description:

\item first
\item second
\item third

See Section 12 of the Beamer manual for details.

  • @JosephWright, why not, what's wrong with it? – bonifaz Jun 12 '16 at 10:55

    @bonifaz Not a technical issue: more a question of creating good presentations. In general, using 'reveal point by point' should be quite limited in presentations, and indeed text on slides should be carefully considered as the slides should be there to support what you say. – Joseph Wright Jun 12 '16 at 10:57

    @JosephWright indeed, but it depends on the content an presentation style. Revealing point-by-point prevents the audience from reading the whole slide at once. It can be a good thing, if the presenter wants to be “in charge”, and if crucial points need to be revealed incrementally, but can get frustrating if the audience prefers to read at its own pace – MatteoS Jun 12 '16 at 10:59
