# Singapore theme sections header but in default theme

how can I have all the sections header (as in Singapore) in a "default" theme?

• @TeXnician I don't see how this question is related to the previous one which about itemization. Sep 7 '17 at 17:35
• general advice: read beamer documentation. specific: provide small, but complete document beginning with \documentclas{beamer} and ending with \end{document} and show in it, what you try so far. then we can help you without guessing what you mean with "section header" etc Sep 7 '17 at 17:58

The Singapore theme uses the miniframes headline.

\documentclass{beamer}

\useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes}

\begin{document}

\section{test}
\subsection{testa}
\begin{frame}
abc
\end{frame}

\end{document}


In case you want the shading as well, the simplest way is to load the Singapore theme and then reset the frametitle to the default one.

\documentclass{beamer}

\usetheme{Singapore}

\setbeamertemplate{frametitle}[default][left]

\begin{document}

\section{test}
\subsection{testa}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{test}
abc
\end{frame}

\end{document}


• works, thanks. is there a way that i can set the header colors (backg and fonts) so it blends in with the section colors? right now i have the header as backg white, font black. however the section is different (say backg blue font green). Sep 7 '17 at 17:15
• @bren123 can you make a minimal working example (MWE) that shows your setup? Sep 7 '17 at 17:18
• right now, w miniframes i get the sections w fg black bg white. but below it i have gf red bg green as in \setbeamercolor{frametitle}{fg=red,bg=green} Sep 7 '17 at 17:28
• @bren123 Please make am MWE! I am not going to puzzle together what you might or might not have. Sep 7 '17 at 17:33
