# Beamer - Keep list greyed out, but items within the list invisible

So say I have a list like:

\begin{itemize}[<+->]
\item This is some text. \uncover<1>{Only 1st slide}
\item Some more text. \uncover<2>{Only 2nd slide}
\end{itemize}


I'm basically wanting the following to occur: In slide 1 - I want item point 1 to be fully visible, item point 2 to be greyed out, but the "Only 2nd slide" part to be invisible. In slide 2 - I want the contrary. So item point 2 fully visible, item point 1 greyed out, but the "Only 1st slide" part to be invisible.

I can't find anyway to add this distinction. Everything seems to always either grey everything or nothing. Is there a way to piecewise do this?

• Why are you using \uncover, sounds more like a job for \only? – user36296 Nov 8 '16 at 16:58
• I did not know about \only . That seems to do the trick. – Aram Papazian Nov 8 '16 at 17:06

If you want something to appear only on certain slides, \only is your friend.
\begin{itemize}[<+->]
