I was asked to make a LaTeX document visually like our PPT template, see picture. I have figured out for example \definecolor{tuniviolet}{RGB}{78,0,142}, but how to make white left and top margin? Also, how to add a date and page number to a given location in the footer? Just saying \setbeamertemplate{footline}{\hfill\insertframenumber} puts the number in the bottom right corner with zero marginal.

I suggest to use the sidebar outer theme and adjust the width and height to fit your template (this also has a build in mechanism to place a logo at the top left)


\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=tuniviolet}

\setbeamercolor{sidebar left}{bg=white}


enter image description here

  • Thanks, this helps. Now, how to get the logo wholly seen? Now it only shows up partially. Aug 9, 2022 at 8:55
