After a quote environment, Beamer fails to ensure text begins on a new line:enter image description here


 I quoted.

This seems like a bug: could anyone advise me how to fix it globally? (Rather than, say, \\ after all the quote environments which don't end at the end of a paragraph in the source file.)

    The commit: github.com/josephwright/beamer/commit/… is responsible for this change. – Raaja_is_at_topanswers.xyz Sep 9 '19 at 11:12
  • Thanks, @Raaja. I've reproduced the difference before and after that commit. (But I'm not skilled enough to see which bit of the new code is responsible.) – vacantnorthernerboy Sep 9 '19 at 13:19
  • I made my comment on behalf of one of the experts in beamer. Therefore, I am also not qualified enough to differentiate the problem. So, may be we should wait until someone else answers this :) – Raaja_is_at_topanswers.xyz Sep 9 '19 at 13:23

    On behalf of samcarter: "the implementation of the beamercolorbox was changed which has a few far reaching consequences. Amongst other things, a beamercolorbox is now smaller than the \textwidth, therefore there is enough space left on the line to fit a few small words like "I". As temporary solution I suggest to use raw.githubusercontent.com/josephwright/beamer/… and wait for the beamer maintainers to fix it." – Raaja_is_at_topanswers.xyz Sep 10 '19 at 6:10
  • Thanks, @Raaja (and samcarter). This seems to work, and not to destroy anything else in my slides. – vacantnorthernerboy Sep 10 '19 at 10:25
