# Marking a slide with blue circle on top right hand side of given beamer slides?

I would like to mark some given slides with a 1cm about or more blue colored circle. Herewith it will show which slides might be more important.

Which possible method that won't interfer with frame and the slide figure position? Ideally would be on top layer, without shifting down the figures of the beamer slide.

Thank you in advance !! Yours Sincerely

\documentclass[12pt,t]{beamer}

\begin{document}
\section{Section}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{\thesection.~\insertsection}
\begin{itemize}
\begin{itemize}
\item Example
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\begin{document}
\section{Section}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{\thesection.~\insertsection}
\begin{itemize}
\begin{itemize}
\item Example
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\clearpage
\begin{frame}
\vspace{3.3cm}
\begin{center}
{\fontsize{30}{40}\selectfont {\it Thank you for your attention}}
\end{center}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Quick hack: misuse the logo layer

\documentclass[12pt,t]{beamer}

\begin{document}
\section{Section}
\logo{\Huge\textcolor{structure.fg}{\textbullet}\vspace{8.6cm}}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{\thesection.~\insertsection}
\begin{itemize}
\begin{itemize}
\item Example
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}


• the problem is if I use Madrid or California theme (red one color) and a top banner, the logo (blue) is under the header. Would you have a solution to bring the logo (blue color) on the top layer? – linux786 Oct 9 '18 at 16:03
• @linux786 For Madrid theme, you could add the circles to the frametitle. E.g. \frametitle{\thesection.~\insertsection\hspace{9cm}\Huge\textcolor{red}{\textbullet}}. I don't know of a California theme – user36296 Oct 10 '18 at 9:18
• I would like to keep the frametitle unchanged, otherwise it will make it too complicated. Is it simply possible that your solution is updated that it goes on the top layer? thank you in advance – linux786 Oct 12 '18 at 9:20
• The frametitle hack is unstable, and it does not work. I tried again and the logo solution does not work. Nothing work. What about hbox use? Cannot we force latex to write on top layer somehow? – linux786 Oct 12 '18 at 9:23
• what about the use of textblock for x and y placement? or maybe: \begin{picture}(50,50) \put(200,-300){\hbox{\includegraphics[scale=0.3]{file}}} \end{picture} ? – linux786 Oct 12 '18 at 9:31
