# Beamer: Show only the frametitle as first slide for each frame

In my beamer presentation I want when it comes to a new frame to show only the frametitle of this new frame on the first slide for the frame. I know that this is possible by inserting a \pause after the \frametitle. But maybe there is a global setting which I don't know so far such that I don't have to edit each frame but simply can specify this behavior globally.

• While you wait for an answer to this question, can you go back to your previous ones and look if the answers solve your problems and accept them, if they do? Apr 25, 2017 at 16:32
• Thanks, in the next days I will go through my old questions and do so. Apr 25, 2017 at 20:21

One remaining problem: first pause has to duplicated

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{bla}
abc
\pause
\pause
def
\pause
ghi
\end{frame}

\end{document}

• Thanks for your answer. There is no configuration possible like \beamerdefaultoverlayspecification{<+->} which deals with the problem? Apr 25, 2017 at 18:53
• I am confused. Is it title on only the first slide or only title on the first slide? Apr 25, 2017 at 19:20
• @Symbol1 From the description of the questions, I guess your second interpretation? Now if there would have been a MWE ... Apr 25, 2017 at 19:23
• @Symbol1 I meant only title on the first slide. So every slide shows the title but the first one nothing else. Apr 25, 2017 at 20:19
• @principal-ideal-domain frame title is a very special space, setting beamerdefaultoverlayspecification will probably destroy everything else yet not affect frame title at all. Apr 25, 2017 at 20:28
