In beamer one can use the option \setbeamertemplate{bibliography item}[text] to replace the standard beamer bibliography icon for numeric-style items.

I would like to change the color of the resulting numeric items since they are blue by default.

The option \setbeamercolor*{} enables changing the color of other bibliography entries (e.g. title, author, etc.). However, I tried things like \setbeamercolor*{bibliography entry item}{fg=black} or even changing the hyperref options \hypersetup{colorlinks,citecolor=black,linkcolor=black,urlcolor=black}, but I still get blue numeric items. Does anyone know how to do this?

  • \setbeamercolor*{bibliography item}{fg=black} sholud work

\setbeamercolor*{bibliography item}{fg=black} can be used to change the color of the bibliography item in a beamerpresentation.

bibliography entry ... with ...= author, title, location or note refers to the corresponding parts of the references in the bibliography.
