I am using the LaTeX beamer package and handoutWithNotes package to create a presentation with notes and rectangle around each slide.



\pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1 with notes landscape}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm]

\pgfpageslogicalpageoptions{1}{border code=\pgfusepath{stroke}}
\pgfpageslogicalpageoptions{2}{border code=\pgfusepath{stroke}}


\begin{frame}\frametitle{numbered lists}
\item Introduction to  \LaTeX  
\item Course 2 
\item Termpapers and presentations with \LaTeX 
\item Beamer class

\begin{frame}\frametitle{numbered lists with pause}
\item Introduction to  \LaTeX \pause 
\item Course 2 \pause 
\item Termpapers and presentations with \LaTeX \pause 
\item Beamer class


It works fine in other softwares (preview, PDFview, .. etc) NOT adobe reader.

The problem is that the rectangle seems to disappear when I open the pdf file with Adobe Reader.

    This is just a visual artifact at the zoom level you're viewing at. A very common occurrence between different viewers. If this is a problem, you might consider adding \setlength\arrayrulewidth{0.6pt} (or some larger length) in your preamble. See Adobe Reader and xcolor within a table breaks the line render. – Werner Sep 29 '12 at 16:09
  • Thanks @Werner, but it did not solve the problem. I have tried it with different lengths but still the border is no where to be seen :( – user692704 Sep 29 '12 at 16:35

    They are there when you zoom in. As such, they will also print out. I am able to see them when I view the output PDF @ 150%. – Werner Sep 29 '12 at 19:52
