Is there any substitute for itemize with [<-+>] option that has no conflict with beamer frame "allowframebreaks" option? using allowframebreaks will not allow [<-+>] option of itemize to do its work

    the answer is simple: don't use allowframebreaks, it is evil! Commented Oct 18, 2017 at 15:25
  • Each \item creates a new page in the PDF. How is beamer supposed to keep track or which pages are <> and which are real pages? Commented Oct 18, 2017 at 15:26
  • It seems that my question a bit ambiguous. I want to have two slides with the same title which has itemize. since the allowframebreaks break the itemize sequence job, I wanted something for substitution rather than doing it by hand.

With itemize you don't have to worry about consecutive numbering, so you can simply use two itemize environments:




        \item item 1
        \item item 2
        \item item 3
        \item item 4
        \item item 5
        \item item 6

        \item item 7
        \item item 8
        \item item 9
        \item item 10
        \item item 11
        \item item 12

  • @V.Ajall Sorry, but I do not understand what you are trying to do. Maybe ask a new question with some example what you are trying to do? Commented Oct 20, 2017 at 14:57
  • If you put <2>includegraphic{...} before \end{frame} it will be shown with second item in itemize. i want to set a flag for an item(not necessary to know its index number in itemize) and then show it with that specific item!
