# Remove dots from Beamer miniframes style

Can anybody help me remove the subsection dots from the navigation bar in Beamer miniframes outer theme?

Edit: This is the preamble what worked:

\documentclass[xcolor=x11names,compress]{beamer}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\usepackage{miniframes}
\useinnertheme{default}
\usefonttheme{serif}
\usepackage{palatino}

\setbeamerfont{title like}{shape=\scshape}
\setbeamerfont{frametitle}{shape=\scshape}

\setbeamercolor*{lower separation line head}{bg=DeepSkyBlue4}
\setbeamercolor*{normal text}{fg=black,bg=white}
\setbeamercolor*{example text}{fg=black}
\setbeamercolor*{structure}{fg=black}

\setbeamercolor*{palette tertiary}{fg=black,bg=black!10}
\setbeamercolor*{palette quaternary}{fg=black,bg=black!10}

\makeatletter
\def\beamer@writeslidentry{\clearpage\beamer@notesactions}
\makeatother

\newcommand{\<}[1]{\begin{column}{#1}}
\renewcommand{\>}{\end{column}}

• Please add a minimal working example (MWE). – Bobyandbob Jun 20 '17 at 5:08
• Don't use the miniframes theme if you don't like the dots. – Henri Menke Jun 20 '17 at 5:29
• Which theme could I use then, to get the subsection frames but not the dots? I tried editing the .sty file but couldn't find my way around really. – swa_mi Jun 20 '17 at 11:07
