I want to make a frame in beamer that compares two thingys according to 4-5 parameters, uncovered sequentially. My modest efforts to get something pleasing to the eye using \begin{columns} and <1->-type things have floundered. Do you know of a nice way to do such a thing?

    Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It's really not easy to understand your problem just based on a description.

One way to do this is by using a tabular environment and using the \pause command to step through the table.

\begin{tabular}{l l}
  Thingy 1 &Thingy 2 \\ \pause
  Param 1  &Param 1  \\ \pause
  Param 2  &Param 2  \\

This snippet provides a crude start since I do not know how much text you need for each parameter. It should be relatively simple to adjust the tabular environment to your needs.

  • I ended up using the columns environment, but maybe I'll give this a try next time. Thanks! Dec 8, 2012 at 0:20
