# Changing Enumerate Colors using Beamer Theme Berlin

I am trying to figure out how to change the coloring of enumerations in Beamer using the Theme 'Berlin'. I was able to change the color of the Itemize environment by:

    \setbeamercolor{itemize item}{fg=TAMIU}


Also I was able to change the color of the Table of Content enumeration by:

    \setbeamercolor{section number projected}{bg=TAMIU,fg=white}


But non of these two approaches work for the enumeration:

    \setbeamercolor{enumerate item}{fg=TAMIU}
\setbeamercolor{enumerate number projected}{bg=Tamiu,fg=white}


So how can I do this?

• Hi Martin, Welcome to TeX.SE! I edited your post to remove the thanks- it may seem strange, but the best way to thank people is to 'upvote' and accept appropriate answers :) It's generally best to provide a complete MWE so that folks don't have to re-create your problem from scratch. – cmhughes Oct 29 '11 at 20:03

There is no enumerate number projected template. Try instead

\setbeamercolor{item projected}{fg=white,bg=TAMIU}


which will also take care of section number projected in one go.

• That is exactly, what I have been looking for, thank you so much! – Skrodde Oct 31 '11 at 16:37

You can change the color by using a copy of the definition of the enumerate item template for the square option, as given in the file beamerbaseauxtemplates.sty. A little example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Berlin}

\setbeamertemplate{enumerate item}
{
\hbox{%
\usebeamerfont*{item projected}%
\usebeamercolor[olive!30]{item projected}% original: [bg]
\vrule width2.25ex height1.85ex depth.4ex%
\hskip-2.25ex%
\hbox to2.25ex{%
\hfil%
\color{red!60!black}\insertenumlabel% original: [fg]
\hfil}%
}%
}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\begin{enumerate}
\item First.
\item Second.
\end{enumerate}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
