# Removing the fancy lighting effect in beamer enumerate bullets

Beamer bullets using enumerate have this cutesy lighting effect that I guess is meant to make the bullets seem 3D. In fact they are simply hard to read, as the pic below illustrates. Is there any way to make the bullets have a flat background color, i.e., removing the "lighting" effect? Scoured the manual for this, but I don't really know what a good keyword would be. Thanks!

The image you show is not the default behaviour of beamer, but rather a modification done by the rounded inner theme. If you don't like it, use another inner theme instead, for example the circles inner theme:

\documentclass{beamer}

\useinnertheme{circles}

\begin{frame}
\begin{enumerate}
\item test
\end{enumerate}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
