# Beamer Singapore theme, customize navigation

I am using the Singapore theme for a beamer presentation, with a custom color theme. I am trying to remove the fading of the navigation bar and the navigation in the title page, but I cannot get either of these things to work. Is there a standard option to do it? How can I remove the fading?

Here is a screenshot of what it looks like:

Here is a reproducible .tex:

\documentclass[french]{beamer}
% Color Scheme:
% https://github.com/jrnold/beamercolorthemesolarized

\usecolortheme[accent=blue]{solarized}
\usetheme{Singapore}

\hspace{1em}
\usebeamerfont{footline}
}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\title{Title}
\author{My name}
\date{A Date}

\begin{document}

\frame{\titlepage}

\section{Previous}
\section{Next}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{A Frame}

\end{frame}

\end{document}



You should be able to remove both the navigation buttons by resetting the navigation symbols template and the headline shading by changing the headline template. Both modifications can be made locally inside the group formed by the {...} enclosing. The second modification is made by the \removeheadshading macro, which is basically the same definition as the default template, without the shading defined inside beamerthemeSingapore.sty

See the full example below

% arara: lwpdflatex
\documentclass[french]{beamer}
% Color Scheme:
% https://github.com/jrnold/beamercolorthemesolarized

\usecolortheme[accent=blue]{solarized}
\usetheme{Singapore}

\hspace{1em}
\usebeamerfont{footline}
}
\end{beamercolorbox}%
}%
}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\title{Title}
\author{My name}
\date{A Date}

\begin{document}

% Start group to make modifications local
{%
% Typeset the actual titlepage
\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}
% End the local group
}

\section{Previous}
\section{Next}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{A Frame}

\end{frame}

\end{document}



• This removes the header; I would like the keep the header, but remove the gray fading background Oct 19, 2020 at 14:44
