Is there a way to set an specific date (e.g. the presentation date) in beamer's notes?

Using \date{some date} has no effect in the notes. Only the compilation date is shown.


  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can help us to help you by providing the code for a small compilable document that shows your problem called MWE. Just edit your question and add missing code. – Bobyandbob Dec 5 '17 at 14:04

The compilation date is stored in \day, \month and \year. Without testing due to the lack of a MWE I therefore postulate that you might change the date shown with the following:

  • @Jander then maybe you should accept my answer. I think after a full day it is unlikely that there will pop-up a much better answer in the next few hours. – Skillmon Dec 6 '17 at 18:20
  • I thought I did... It's done now :) Thanks for pointing out. – Jander Dec 7 '17 at 13:20
