Im trying to make a fancy presentation with beamer and i'd like to put some diagram like this

There is some software with rulers in the preview pdf or something like this to desing the beamer presentation?

I'm used to work with tikz, but i dont really where is the correct position without any ruler

  • I'm not understanding what parts of your image you're having trouble with.

A few quick settings to give you a starting point:



\setbeamercolor{block title}{bg=orange}

  decoration={random steps,segment length=2mm,amplitude=0.6pt}

  interior empty,
  attach boxed title to top left={yshift=-0.18cm,xshift=-0.5mm},
  boxed title style={
    interior empty,
    tikz={rotate=4,transform shape},
    frame code={
      \draw[decorate,draw=beamer@tcb@titlebg,fill=beamer@tcb@titlebg!30!bg] (frame.south west) rectangle (frame.north east);
  frame code={
    \draw[decorate,draw=beamer@tcb@titlebg,fill=beamer@tcb@titlebg!30!bg] (frame.north east) rectangle (frame.south west);


    Text\footnote{Footnote text}
  \begin{block}{Block Title}

enter image description here


Finally, to do this i set a grid as background whit 0.5cm separation. And i'm using this kind of frames:

    \useasboundingbox (0,0) rectangle(\the\paperwidth,\the\paperheight);
    %\fill[white,opacity=.25] (0,0) rectangle(\the\paperwidth,\the\paperheight);%this is just to see where i can put something
    %\node[text=white] at (1cm,9.2cm) ;
    \draw[-,line width=2pt ,amarillo] (0cm,8.5cm) to node[above,white] {\LARGE\ Problem:} (2.5cm,8.5cm);
    \node at (\the\paperwidth*0.5,7cm) {Este es el problema};
    \fill[morado] (0.5,3cm) rectangle(\the\paperwidth,4.5cm);
  • Is this actually supposed to be an edit to the original question?

  • Using tikz to add a background grid sounds a bit overkill. Beamer has a build in function for this: \setbeamertemplate{background}[grid][color=lightgray,step=3mm] Oct 25, 2022 at 19:22
