I am creating a presentation with beamer using Stockton theme. You can find tex file here

I have two questions to ask. How can I change the margins of a slide? For the example below, I would like to change the margins following the black lines.

enter image description here

  • The screen shots on the link to the theme don't have this black frame. Maybe you can copy the code you used for this frame. – jens_bo Oct 9 '12 at 12:21
  • no, it's all the same code. I just draw the black frame with Paint, to illustrate what I want. I want to take margins up to this frame. – ARAT Oct 9 '12 at 12:23

    Please I mean please don't fill the slides with text. – percusse Oct 9 '12 at 12:41

You can basically use \setbeamersize{text margin left=1em,text margin right=1em} to set the margins on the left and right. Just change the 1em to whatever margin you like.


\setbeamersize{text margin left=1em,text margin right=1em}


    \item   \lipsum[4]
    \item   \lipsum[4]

enter image description here

But please do not use that much text on a slide, as percusse mentioned...

  • Thank you so much. That worked. That was only a draft of a slide. I will not put so much text in it. – ARAT Oct 9 '12 at 17:40
