I am inserting the list of section names in the footer using:


The complete code for the footer (using the metropolis theme) is

  \begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=\textwidth, sep=3ex]{footline}%
    \usebeamerfont{page number in head/foot}%
    \usebeamertemplate*{frame footer}
    \usebeamertemplate*{frame numbering}

  \begin{beamercolorbox}[colsep=1.5pt]{upper separation line head}
  \begin{beamercolorbox}{section in head/foot}
  \begin{beamercolorbox}[colsep=1.5pt]{lower separation line head}

However I have too many sections and it escapes the end of the footer. See picture of slide:

enter image description here

To fix this I would like to move the navigation to the left as the current section increases. Something like:


where \sectionnumber is the number of the current section (made up the command).

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.
