Pause problem within \item [closed]

Look at this code:

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test}
\begin{itemize}
\item Item 1.
\item Item 2a.\pause Item 2b.
\item Item 3.
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}


I have \beamerdefaultoverlayspecification{<+->} activated.

What happens is not what I want. I want four slides such that in each slide a new item (or subitem) appears. What I get is four slides but only silde 1-2 and 4 like I want. Slide 3 looks like slide 2. So "Item 2b." is missing on slide 3.

How can this be solved?

• If so, I've just posted the solution I ended up using which I think might answer your question. Apr 25 '17 at 21:54
• In particular, replacing \pause with \uncover<+->{...} works like a charm. Apr 25 '17 at 21:55
