I was wondering whether there was an easy way to change the color of a specific bullet point to the color used with the \alert command (because I want the entire bullet highlighted as an alert).

You can use \item<alert@2> as per The Beamer class User Guide.

  • Since I don't use a normal beamer theme, how do I specify the color as part of my theme?

  • To change the color of all your alerted texts, you set the color in the preambule, e.g., \setbeamercolor{alerted text}{fg=green!80!}. See this question for more examples.

  • I did that and the text is colored correctly, but the bullet point itself ist still wrong.
