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

Edit: This is the preamble what worked:




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

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

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

    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

May be not the best way but I found it here Hide some slides from the miniframes navigation in beamer and I think that I can use it in your needs like:


Add it in your preamble and check if it is ok for what you want

Edited to make it simpler...
