I need to shrink the material on the slides (involves a lot of text/pics). I am using shrink=20 on most frames. Once I use shrink=20 on a frame, then \pause is not working properly, it just duplicates the whole slide. It works properly if I remove the shrink. Other overlays commands also just duplicate the slides.

I have tried to define \begin{frame}{pause}[shrink=20] as well (changing the order too), but in this case, it ignores shrink=20.....

What am I doing wrong? Any advice on how to use shrink and pause simultaneously?

I am using Texpad (Version 1.8.9 (460)) on MacOS.

Here is the code:




\usepackage{ dsfont }

\date[4/19/2019]{Talk\\April 19, 2019}



Some stuff \\\ %If I input \pause here it duplicates the whole slide

Other stuff\\\

However, If I remove shrink=20 it works properly. Here is the screenshot enter image description here

  • Thank you! I am using Texpad, I have also attached a screenshot. As you can see it just duplicates the slide.... – Gregory Apr 12 at 14:44
