# How do you delimit Beamer frames and blocks in LyX?

I’m a new LyX user, and I would like to make a Beamer presentation. But I don’t understand how to perform some absolutely basic functions:

• inserting a block in a frame that does not have one yet
• defining the end of a frame so you can type content within the frame
• defining the end of a block so that you can both type content within the block and type content outside the block but within the frame

So can someone walk me through how to do these things in LyX? I’m an absolute beginner. Does it involve somehow inserting vertical and/or horizontal markup or separator lines?

• * \begin{block}{...} ... \end{block} * \begin{frame}\frametitle{...} ... \end{frame} – user121799 May 16 at 1:43
• @marmot That’s how to do it in LaTeX, but how do I do it in LyX? – Keshav Srinivasan May 16 at 1:43
• @KeshavSrinivasan have you read Help > Specific Manuals > Beamer Presentations? – scottkosty May 16 at 3:28
• @scottkosty Yes, I have. I couldn’t find the information I was looking for in it. It talked about frames and blocks but it didn’t talk about these three things as far as I could tell. – Keshav Srinivasan May 16 at 3:30
• @KeshavSrinivasan Ah I see. Thanks for the response. – scottkosty May 16 at 4:29
