# Changing the font for "alert" in beamer

I would like to change the behaviour of \alert so that the text is still red but now boldfaced, say. How can I do this? I have Googled, but all I can find is how to change the colour, as in Changing style of alert environment in beamer.

After some digging, I located the definition of \alert in beamerbaselocalstructure.sty. The rest was easy. ;-)

EDIT: There's also a more "beamer-like" way. :-)

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

• By the way, the former \renewcommand didn't work for me for some reason... the latter does though!
