# How to partially hide content in beamer latex?

I tried all overlay options like hide, uncover, visible but didn't get solution. I don't know how to partially hide the content that will display in next slide. Here is the example what I really want to do. In which the bullet 2 content will display in next slide but partially hide or a shadow in current slide.

You can achieve this effect using \setbeamercovered{transparent} or with \setbeamercovered{transparent=...} and a value of your choice. (0 = "totally transparent", 100 = "totally opaque")

\documentclass{beamer}
\setbeamercovered{transparent}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item first item
\pause
\item second item
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

• You could also mention \begin{itemize}[<+->] \item first item \item second item \end{itemize}. Then you do not need a \pause. – user194703 May 30 '20 at 6:05
• Thanks. It works. :) – shweta May 30 '20 at 6:37
• @Schrödinger'scat Thanks. I am using <+-> in place of pause – shweta May 30 '20 at 6:39

You can achieve this by using the command \pause in an itemize or enumerate environment. This creates two (or more) PDF slides and when the next slide is viewed, the next line (in your case bullet point 2, then 3) appears normal and not greyed-out anymore.

Example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item Line 1 \pause
\item Line 2 \pause
\item Line 3
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

• Thanks for your answer. But I want this gray color on subsequent slide i.e. on slide 2 and 3. – shweta May 30 '20 at 6:35
