# Remove white bar in appendix when using mini-frames in metropolis theme

Consider the following MWE:

\documentclass[10pt]{beamer}

\usepackage{appendixnumberbeamer}

\usetheme{metropolis}
\useoutertheme{miniframes}

\begin{document}

\section{Section}

\subsection{Subsection}

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

\appendix

\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. 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}

\begin{document}

\section{Section}

\subsection{Subsection}

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

\appendix

\end{frame}

\begin{frame}[standout]
\frametitle{~}

• 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
