# Temporarily suspend stepwise beamer presentation to show full slide of code listing or graphic [duplicate]

Is it possible to suspend a stepwise presentation to show a full slide containing say code listings (or a graphic). I don't want the full slide to cover the slide title.

\begin{frame}{Really important stuff}
\begin{itemize}
\pause
\item Version control

\pause
\item Architecture

%%% Want to show a full side of listings at this point
\pause
\item Documentation

\pause
\item Personal development
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

• @samcarter I guessed so, I just couldn't find it – Mike May 25 '17 at 0:01

It is, using \againframe and overlay specifications:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}<1-3>[label=important]{Really important stuff}
\begin{itemize}
\pause
\item Version control

\pause
\item Architecture

%%% Want to show a full side of listings at this point
\pause
\item Documentation

\pause
\item Personal development
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Really important listing}
Listing goes here \ldots
\end{frame}

\againframe<4->{important}
\end{document}

• Thanks. How would I do this several times in one slide. I've tried adding another frame and \againframe but the second listing is not appearing where expected. – Olumide May 24 '17 at 23:47
• @Olumide you need to change the overlay specification accordingly, e.g. \againframe<4>{...}, then the frame with the second listing and then \againframe<5->{...} – Mike May 25 '17 at 0:03
• I've edited the previous specification to \againframe<4>{important} and added \againframe<6->{important}. It sort of works although I'm just getting the hang of what againframe means i.e. returns to item. – Olumide May 25 '17 at 0:15
