I am using a custom beamer template I found online. There is a bug with the template. The problem is that in the produced pdf I cannot fit all the sections names and some of them are out of the headline space and I cannot see them. What should I look in the .sty in order to find a way to fit all the sections names in the headline. I found out that the following code is responsible for producing the headline for every slide:

\defbeamertemplate*{navigation symbols}{CVC}{}
\begin{beamercolorbox}{section in head/foot}%

How can I fit all the section titles into the beamer's headline?

Suggestions 1:

Using a smaller font size, for example \setbeamerfont{section in head/foot}{size=\fontsize{4}{6}\selectfont}

Suggestion 2:

Using short versions of the section names for the navigation bar, for example \section[Conclusions]{Conclusions \& future work}

    The first worked like a charm, the second approach did not work for me.
