# How to get rid of miniframes but fix distance between parts

I needed to get rid of the circles that compone each miniframe in each slide. There were too many and overlapping.

I managed to eliminate them by using the suggestion indicated here:

and more precisely by adding the code:

\setbeamertemplate{mini frame}{}

\setbeamertemplate{mini frame in other section}{}

\setbeamertemplate{mini frame in current subsection}{}


The result is partially what I want as it looks like this:

The problem is that I have 10 Parts and the output I would like should look like the following:

The last Part HW is missing as it seems that the length of the invisible circles is still there.

I would be extremely thankful if someone could help me.

Here is what I have in my preamble:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usetheme{Frankfurt}
\setbeamertemplate{mini frame}{}
\setbeamertemplate{mini frame in other section}{}
\setbeamertemplate{mini frame in current subsection}{}
\usecolortheme{beaver}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{graphicx, subfigure}
\usepackage{pifont}
\usepackage{fancybox}
\usepackage{color, xcolor, colortbl}
\usepackage{multicol, multirow}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\setbeamercovered{transparent=20}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]{}  % to show overlay page numbers
type: page number
\setbeamersize{text margin left=0.65cm, text margin right=0.65cm}
\setbeamercolor{item}{fg=red!70!black} % red bullets
\setbeamertemplate{itemize subitem}[triangle] % triangle sub-bullets
\setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate subbody}{size=\normalsize}

• Can you make a minimal working example (MWE)? – user36296 May 24 '18 at 7:55
• Can you please also add a dummy document including the section names? I don't want to retype all of them from your image. – user36296 May 24 '18 at 9:47
• off-topic: you don't need \usepackage{geometry} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{color, xcolor} \usepackage{multicol} \usepackage{hyperref} with beamer – user36296 May 24 '18 at 9:48
• Thank you very much @samcarter. I am really sorry I cannot solve the problem as it works perfectly on a friends' notebook with same MikTeX and TeX Studio. – Marco May 24 '18 at 10:03

I suggest to modify the headline definition instead of setting the miniframe templates to empty, as this will vertically centre the section titles:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usetheme{Frankfurt}
\usecolortheme{beaver}
%\usepackage{geometry}
%\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{subfigure}
\usepackage{pifont}
\usepackage{fancybox}
%\usepackage{color, xcolor}
\usepackage{colortbl}
%\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{natbib}
%\usepackage{hyperref}

\setbeamercovered{transparent=20}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number] % to show overlay page numbers type: page number
\setbeamersize{text margin left=0.65cm, text margin right=0.65cm}
\setbeamercolor{item}{fg=red!70!black} % red bullets
\setbeamertemplate{itemize subitem}[triangle] % triangle sub-bullets
\setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate subbody}{size=\normalsize}

\makeatletter
\ifbeamer@sb@subsection%
\vskip-9.75ex%
\else%
\vskip-7ex%
\fi%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\ifbeamer@sb@subsection%
\begin{beamercolorbox}[ignorebg,ht=2.125ex,dp=1.125ex,%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\fi%
}%

\makeatother
