The position of the title graphics is determined by the theme. In this case it seems to be placed in the top left side of the slide. A quick (and a bit hacky) way to move it is to put it in a picture environment with zero width and height, and then place it where ever you like. \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme[sectionpage=none, progressbar=frametitle, ...

Using line width option would do the job. \documentclass[tikz]{standalone} \RequirePackage{pgfplots} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \begin{axis} \addplot+[ultra thick, , mark=none] coordinates {(0,1.5) (1,1.5)}; \addplot+[line width=10pt, mark=none] coordinates {(0,0.5) (1,0.5)}; \end{axis} \end{tikzpicture} \end{document} to get:

In the Modern Toolchain I personally recommend you use unicode-math when you can, and legacy fonts when you have to. Not everyone agrees, so I present the alternatives. With the package unicode-math, you can use any OpenType fonts of your choice, including Fira Sans and its successor FiraGO. Asana Math is a Unicode math font based on mathpazo, but with ...

You could just open the beamercolorthememetropolis.sty from your TeX distribution (OS search does it for you). There you would find something like: \definecolor{mLightBrown}{HTML}{EB811B} \definecolor{mLightGreen}{HTML}{14B03D} and following \setbeamercolor{example text}{% fg=mLightGreen } So you could use \textcolor{mLightGreen}{Text}. MWE: \...

The theme doesn't take sufficient account of the way Beamer's colours work. In particular, when you change the colour, the code uses \setbeamercolor but not \usebeamercolor, which is necessary for the change to take effect. For example, the following works. \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme[progressbar=frametitle,block=fill]{metropolis} \begin{document} \...

Dirty but quick hack: Move the logo right with \flushright and down with \vspace: \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme[sectionpage=none, progressbar=frametitle, numbering=fraction]{metropolis} \title{Title} \date{\today} \author{Author} \institute{Title} % logo of my university \titlegraphic{\vspace{4cm}\flushright\includegraphics[width=2cm,height=2cm]{example-...

Update I have just discovered the existence of FiraMath font, here an example of the font from https://github.com/firamath/firamath The Github repository above gives instructions for installing the font ­– but it's already in Texlive – and instructions to use it in XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX that I report for completeness \documentclass{article} \usepackage{...

Just a word of advice: You should use the metropolis color theme when you use metropolis. There's a simple way to adjust the colors documented in section 3.2 of the manual. Here's what a corrected version of your code would look like (do not use the main theme, just the components). \documentclass{beamer} %\usetheme{metropolis} \useoutertheme[progressbar=...

The metropolis theme defines its fonts, but you're overriding them with the instruction \usefonttheme{serif} If you don't get an error message such as ! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char ₂ (U+2082) (inputenc) not set up for use with LaTeX. it means you are running either XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX. The code should be like \documentclass{...

The latest beamer release fixes an issue with hyperlinks and subsections (see https://github.com/josephwright/beamer/commit/ef419391cbe5245cabf3b77c89b58023fb253c95 and https://github.com/josephwright/beamer/issues/350). This means that the line that the theme is trying to patch has changed. The theme code will need to be updated to allow for this: I have ...

Perhaps not the best solution, but lying about the \linewidth using a minipage with width \paperwidth does work. The \makebox[\linwidth][c] is to give everything the width of \linewidth and centre-align it. For the vertical placement you can change the argument given to \vspace*. \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{metropolis} \begin{document} \...

Just as an idea for future users (but don't accept it as an answers) you can always define your own titleframe and use it as you wish: \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme[sectionpage=none, progressbar=frametitle, numbering=fraction]{metropolis} % Use metropolis theme \usepackage{tikz} \let\oldtitle\title \let\oldinstitute\institute \let\oldauthor\...

To remove the whitespace add the open subsection=false to the miniframes theme: \useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes} %Use miniframes outer Output:

You need to load some more elements (and explicitly load TikZ) to reproduce metropolis title frame over a default beamer theme. Following code just loads title frame format, used colors come from default theme. \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{tikz} \makeatletter \setbeamertemplate{title page}{ \begin{minipage}[b][\paperheight]{\textwidth} \ifx\...

Perhaps eulervm, though it is obviously a question of preference. In this case, I find the weight, the taper, and ornamentation (i.e., curliness) to be a better fit. \documentclass[aspectratio=169]{beamer} \usepackage{eulervm} \usetheme[titleformat=smallcaps,block=fill]{metropolis} %\metroset{outer/frametitleformat=smallcaps} \setbeamertemplate{navigation ...

Looking at the source of the metropolis theme (here), you see that the block environment is made up of several beamercolorbox environments. These take wd={width} as an optional argument to resize them to your desired width. So just add wd=\paperwidth to every occurence of beamercolorbox in the \metropolis@block macro. The following example shows two things: ...
