I'm using the template from https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/uib-beamer-theme/ddsnzprthmfv. I noticed that the default font size for the title, subtitle and author's affiliations on the cover slide is sort of big, so I tried to reduce the font as follows:

\author{\large{Martin Helsø}}
\title{\large{Beamer example}}
\subtitle{\large{Usage of the theme \texttt{UiB}}}

which seems to be successful:

However, the font size of the footer seems to have been blown up and over-written:

Is there a way to overcome this?

You can modify the font settings with the \setbeamerfont{...}{family = ..., size = ..., series = ...} command in the preamble of the document:

\setbeamerfont{author}{size = \large, series = \bfseries}
\setbeamerfont{title}{size = \large, series = \bfseries}
\setbeamerfont{subtitle}{family = \rmfamily, size = \large}
  • Thank you, it works! :) Just to add, it works only when the above lines are placed after \usetheme{UiB}.
