I want to add index (similar to Darmstadt theme) to top of Simple Beamer theme.

What is the approach to do this? Do I need to modify sty file of Simple or I need another approach?

Update: I add sty file and a minimum demo to use it at the end of this question. enter image description here

The headline used by the Darmstadt theme comes from the smoothbars outer theme:

\useoutertheme{smoothbars}

Edit:

To remove the subsection name, use \useoutertheme[subsection=false]{smoothbars} instead.

  • I am very happy with your answer, how can I give you some reputation as a "big thank you" :-) ?

  • Do you know how can I hide the subsection name?

  • @Woeitg Easy :) see the edit Commented Feb 8, 2017 at 15:52
  • tnx for quick answer! I get this error LaTeX Error: Option clash for package beamerouterthemesmoothbars.. I tried the solution here but it doesn't remove any subsection.

  • @Woeitg Seems like you are trying to load the theme multiple times? Just do it once. Commented Feb 8, 2017 at 16:08
