I'm trying to get beamer to output the contents of the frames without the actual frames. The idea is to have the handouts produced as normal A4/Letter papers. I already have my content arranged in sections, subsections and proper itemization etc.

    This sounds like you want the article mode; have you read Section 21 (particularly 21.2) in the beamer manual? If not, try reading that and see if it helps. Nov 17, 2011 at 7:57
  • Thank you. I don't understand why you put this as a comment instead of an answer though.

  • I wasn't sure if this would be helpful to you or not, so it was more a speculative "Have you tried ..." than an attempt at answering. It sounds as though this is what you were looking for, is that right? Nov 17, 2011 at 12:23

    Yes. It was exactly that. I would have preferred a simpler solution but I guess that's the one I have to use. Please put that as an answer (preferably with an example from the manual) so that I can mark it accepted. For future reference, of course.

1 Answer 1


This sounds like you want the article mode which is a way of incorporating the beamer frames into a normal LaTeX article.

The details of how to use it are in Section 21 (particularly 21.2) in the beamer manual.
