Consider the following MWE:

\documentclass[10pt]{beamer}

\usepackage{appendixnumberbeamer}

\usetheme{metropolis}
\useoutertheme{miniframes}

\setbeamercolor{section in head/foot}{fg=white, bg=mDarkTeal}
\setbeamercolor{subsection in head/foot}{fg=white, bg=mDarkTeal}


\begin{document}

\section{Section}

\subsection{Subsection}

\begin{frame}{slide}
    Normal slide
\end{frame}

\appendix

\begin{frame}{Additional stuff}
    Additional stuff
\end{frame}

\end{document}

I use mini-frames in the metroplis theme to indicate the progress in the presentation. I also use appendixnumberbeamer package in order to separate backup slides from the rest of the presentation. In the slides in the appendix, the mini-frames are not visible any more - which is just fine. However, there is a white bar where the mini-frames were located before. enter image description here Is there any possibility to remove this bar completely in the appendix? It would be sufficient to change the outer theme in the appendix slides, but I don't think this is possible without any further ado.

You can simply shift the slides from the appendix by the height of the former navigation bar:

\documentclass[10pt]{beamer}

\usepackage{appendixnumberbeamer}

\usetheme{metropolis}
\useoutertheme{miniframes}

\setbeamercolor{section in head/foot}{fg=white, bg=mDarkTeal}
\setbeamercolor{subsection in head/foot}{fg=white, bg=mDarkTeal}

\begin{document}

\section{Section}

\subsection{Subsection}

\begin{frame}{slide}
    Normal slide
\end{frame}

\appendix

\setbeamertemplate{headline}{}
\addtobeamertemplate{frametitle}{\vspace*{-\headheight}}{}

\begin{frame}{Additional stuff}
    Additional stuff
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}[standout] 
    \frametitle{~}
    \vspace*{-\headheight}
    Thank you very much! 
\end{frame} 

\end{document}

  • Thank you very much, I will accept it as an answer. However, do you have any idea how to extend this to the standout frame? \begin{frame}[standout] Thank you very much! \end{frame} – user1742364 Aug 1 '16 at 12:58

    @user1742364 See the edit for a quick hack of the standout-frame. – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Aug 1 '16 at 13:08
