# Changing aspect ratio in beamer (feather theme)

Overleaf has a very nice feather theme for presentations based on the Beamer class. My problem is that when I add the class option aspectratio=169 the footer line disappears.

vs.

• can you please post your code as text and not as screenshots? – samcarter is at topanswers.xyz Mar 16 '18 at 19:18
• Sure, it uses 4 different style files, so I have provided a link. – ITA Mar 16 '18 at 19:23

The structure of the feather theme seems quite strange. While the text of the footline is inserted via the normal footline template, the blue line is part of the background and placed at a fixed distance from the top of the frame ....
