I'd like to reproduce some of my critical text from my dissertation in a presentation, but it seems that reledmac does not work with beamer. Here is an example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{reledmac}

\begin{document}

\frame {
    test
}
\end{document}

Running through pdflatex gives an error: ! LaTeX Error: Command \lemma already defined.

Does anyone know of a workaround?

  • So, I found the workaround for this. Declare with: \documentclass[notheorems]{beamer} – Aleksandr Jan 27 '18 at 8:22
  • Yes, that is. Unfortunatly, there is a name conflict. – Maïeul Jan 27 '18 at 14:38

    this seems to be useful information, and i haven't found another question on the topic. so if you post a self-answer, it won't get lost. – barbara beeton Jan 27 '18 at 16:04

    As @barbarabeeton said, please post the workaround you found as an answer, and “accept” the answer. Then you'll have made the site useful to others with the same problem. – ShreevatsaR Jan 27 '18 at 17:04

Converting @Aleksandr comment into a CW answer

The following workaround works with lualatex:

\documentclass[notheorems]{beamer}
\usepackage{reledmac}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
  test
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Another workaround for the use with lualatex:

\documentclass{beamer}

\let\lemma\undefined
\usepackage{reledmac}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
  test
\end{frame}

\end{document}
