When using \setbeamercovered{invisible} the math contents in align are invisible and shown only as specified in the overlay specifications. However, when using \setbeamercovered{transparent=<percentage>}, beamer will show all align contents that are supposed to be covered.

In the MWE, all the contents adjacent to the transparent one should also stay transparent, but it is not clear for me why this is not the case.

\documentclass[aspectratio=169, xcolor={x11names}]{beamer}

\usecolortheme{rose}
\useoutertheme[]{split}
\useinnertheme{inmargin}
\setbeamersize{sidebar width left=1cm, sidebar width right=1cm}
\setbeamersize{text margin left=0.5mm, text margin right=0.5mm}

\setbeamercovered{transparent=15}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}

    \begin{block}

        \begin{align*}
            A \uncover<+->{&= B \\}
            \uncover<+->{A &= C \\}
            \uncover<+->{A &= D \\}
            \uncover<+->{A &= E \\}
        \end{align*}

        \begin{equation*}
            A = B \uncover<+->{= C} \uncover<+->{= D} \uncover<+->{= E}
        \end{equation*}

    \end{block}

\end{frame}

\end{document}

    I cannot reproduce the issue on my TeXLive 2018 distribution when I compile the code with pdfplatex and view the pdf with either acroread or preview. What compiler and viewer are you using? – marmot Mar 13 at 7:02
  • I use MiKTeX with XeLaTeX. Here is a link of the MWE in Overleaf overleaf.com/7395593956fytspkbhhqnm It does not seem that the issue is reproduced with Overleaf either. It seems that it is about TeXStudio or MiKTeX – Al-Motasem Aldaoudeyeh Mar 13 at 7:35

    @Al-MotasemAldaoudeyeh Texstudio is just an editor and unrelated to the problem. Which version of beamer do you have? You find this information in the .log file. With v3.55 I cannot reproduce the problem. – user36296 Mar 13 at 9:22
  • The log file says the following about beamer version: Document Class: beamer 2018/12/02 v3.55 – Al-Motasem Aldaoudeyeh Mar 13 at 9:26
  • @Al-MotasemAldaoudeyeh Can you add the complete .log file? – user36296 Mar 16 at 0:50

This seems to some problem with xelatex. For a workaround you can use \onslide:

\documentclass[aspectratio=169, xcolor={x11names}]{beamer}

\usecolortheme{rose}
\useoutertheme[]{split}
\useinnertheme{inmargin}
\setbeamersize{sidebar width left=1cm, sidebar width right=1cm}
\setbeamersize{text margin left=0.5mm, text margin right=0.5mm}

\setbeamercovered{transparent=15}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}

    \begin{block}

        \begin{align*}
            A \onslide<+->{&= B \\}
            \onslide<+->{A &= C \\}
            \onslide<+->{A &= D \\}
            \onslide<+->{A &= E \\}
        \end{align*}

        \begin{equation*}
            A = B \uncover<+->{= C} \uncover<+->{= D} \uncover<+->{= E}
        \end{equation*}

    \end{block}

\end{frame}

\end{document}
