I'm using Beamer with \setbeameroption{show notes on second screen} to add notes for each slide. I'd like to change the font size of the text in the notes so I can fit more text on the page.



You can define font size for notes with \setbeamerfont{note page}{size=\tiny}, default size is \small.

    This doesn't seem to be applied consistently in XeLaTeX, for subitems like \note{\begin{itemize}\item thing \begin{itemize} \item subthing \end{itemize}\end{itemize}}. – bright-star Dec 3 '14 at 22:59
  • @TrevorAlexander I cannot help you with XeLaTeX, but I think \tiny is the smallest font size so I doubt about making subtiems smaller. A new or follow-up question could be a god solution. – Ignasi Dec 4 '14 at 9:04
  • @TrevorAlexander \setbeamertemplate{itemize/enumerate subbody begin}{\tiny} – Paschalis Dec 23 '15 at 10:15
  • @bright-star This is the same with pdflatex. \setbeamertemplate{itemize/enumerate subbody begin}{\tiny} changes the size of all subitems, not only for notes. – user905686 Jan 26 at 16:41

Define the font size for notes as well as for subitems in notes with

\setbeamerfont{note page}{size=\tiny}
\addtobeamertemplate{note page}{\setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate subbody}{size=\tiny}}{}

as shown in this answer.
