I want to put some left-bottom-aligned text on a beamer title page, where the title and name are perfectly centered. How do I do this? As soon as I put something under the centered text, it will de-center (raise) it, as the centering applies to everything on the slide no matter what. The MWE:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}

\centering
\Huge{The Title as Such}\\
\Large{The Author}

\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\bigskip\bigskip\bigskip\bigskip\bigskip
\normalsize{some text}
\end{minipage}

\end{frame}

\end{document}

Instead of a minipage, you can use TeX's primitive \vskip0pt plus 1filll which will insert a vertical skip of at least 0pt but is infinitely stretchable to the available space, to the bottom of the slide in our case. The vertically centered text will be inserted between two \newvfills as follows.

\documentclass{beamer}     
\begin{document}    

\newcommand{\newvfill}{\vskip0pt plus 1filll}       
\begin{frame}    
\newvfill

\begin{center}
\Huge{The Title as Such}\par
\Large{The Author}
\end{center}

\newvfill
some text
\bigskip
\end{frame}

\end{document}

  • This is useful (+1) but adding and removing \bigskips will move the centered text around, so some text cannot appear further up w/ the title centered. I'll accept a solution where the position of some text may vary while the title remains centered – jaam Sep 10 '19 at 20:54
  • OK, I found a way to do this (and added it to your answer) – jaam Sep 10 '19 at 21:19
