I want to print text I put in \only{TEXT} in another color, so I will spot my personal notes faster in the talk.

What command do I need for this, please?

I was thinking about creating a new command printing something only in the handout and coloring it. Is there already something similar?

my preamble so far is:



    \setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]
%   \setbeamercovered{transparent}

%  \setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=black!5}
  \pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=2.5mm]

You can simply put


into your preamble and the use \myhighlight{this} to print this, that only shows up in the handout, in red.
