# Metropolis theme: Skip one section page but keep the others

I have a metropolis presentation where I want to have section intro frames for every section but the first one (its common in my field to jump right into the introduction). I know I can turn off section slides with:

\metroset{sectionpage=none}


but I don't know how to turn them on again.

\metroset{sectionpage=simple}


afterwards doesn't do it.

Here is a minimal example with my attempt commented out:

\documentclass[10pt]{beamer}
\usetheme{metropolis}

\begin{document}

%\metroset{sectionpage=none}
\section{This should not have an intro frame}
%\metroset{sectionpage=simple}

\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\section{I want this one to have an intro frame}

\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}


if you uncomment, all intro slides are lost.

edit: the documentation is here and the part I am using is on page 7.

You can use \metroset{sectionpage=none} within a group around the one section which should not have a section page:

\documentclass[10pt]{beamer}
\usetheme{metropolis}

\begin{document}

{
\metroset{sectionpage=none}
\section{This should not have an intro frame}
}
%\metroset{sectionpage=simple}

\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\section{I want this one to have an intro frame}

\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}

• that is awesome and probably useful in many other settings :-D At some point, I should learn a bit more about Latex... This learning by doing coding has its limits... Dec 22, 2018 at 13:07
