# Combining handout with allowframebreaks

I'm writing some slides using the Beamer template.

In order to get all my bibliography entries displayed, I added the allowframebreaks option to my bibliography frame.

However, since I have \beamerdefaultoverlayspecification{<+->} at the beginning of my slide, all but the first bibliography item are greyed out. In order to set all bibliography items to be visible, I am attempting to combine this with handout, which I seem to be unable to do.

Currently, my LyX document looks like this

... and the output looks like this

Help me tex.stackexchange. You're my only hope. My Thesis defense slides hang in the balance

• Hello! I think that may be if you provide a minimal working example ( starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document) that reproduces the issue you will get a faster answer! – Hafid Boukhoulda Jul 28 '19 at 21:46
• @HafidBoukhoulda: As I am working with LyX, I have no LaTeX code with which to demonstrate a MWE. Hopefully the attached screenshots help clarify things – inspectorG4dget Jul 28 '19 at 22:54

Overlay specifications are not supported with allowframebreaks

Try to add \beamerdefaultoverlayspecification{} inside the bibliography frame (at the begining)

In the code below the bibliography items are taken from the beamer documentation

\documentclass{beamer}
\beamerdefaultoverlayspecification{<+->}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
[allowframebreaks=0.8
]
{My bibliography}
\beamerdefaultoverlayspecification{} % <---------
