The mini frames are generated using the \beamer@framepages entries in the auxiliary .nav file. If you remove these for certain frames, they don't appear in the navigation1. To do so, you have to patch the \beamer@writeslidentry macro responsible for writing the commands to the .nav file: \makeatletter \let\beamer@writeslidentry@miniframeson=\beamer@...

Actually this has nothing to do with TeX … There’s no default, so one needs to check the viewer’s menus and shortcuts, because each application can use its own method. However, on MS Windows the keys are the same for Adobe Reader, SumatraPDF and PDF XChange Viewer (and probably some others which I can’t test now): Alt plus left cursor key for “Go back to ...

GoBack Nearly all PDF viewers have a "go back" feature. Thus, there is no need for explicit "go back" links. There is an unofficial named action GoBack (not part of the PDF standard) that most PDF viewers understand, for example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{hyperref} \begin{document} \section{Hello World} \label{sec:hello} \Acrobatmenu{GoBack}{Go ...

Here's a possible solution; the idea is to have two auxiliary commands \prevsection and \nextsection to hold the names of the previous and next section to the current section; those commands will be used in the headline template to display the required information instead of the usual navigation bar. The updating of \prevsection, \nextsection is done ...

This patch modifies the default mini frame navigation to show one mini frame per subsection instead of one for each slide. The mini frame is highlighted throughout the whole subsection: \documentclass[compress]{beamer} \useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes} \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \patchcmd{\slideentry}{\advance\beamer@xpos by1\relax}{}{}{...

This can be obtained by patching the internal beamer commands responsible for creating the mini frame navigation: \documentclass[compress]{beamer} \useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes} \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \patchcmd{\slideentry}{\advance\beamer@tempdim by -.05cm}{\advance\beamer@tempdim by\beamer@vboxoffset\advance\beamer@tempdim by\...

How about automatically inserting a label at each part/chapter/section? Note this solution (modeled after How to get the section title by section number?) requires you to use part/chapter/section at least once each. EDIT 3: Still WIP, but trying to generalize by keeping the breadcrumb as data in a sequence first, separating content from presentation. This ...

The following example uses the fact that the anchors for the section commands are set and known before the header line is build. That means with careful timing it is possible to avoid the referencing system with a second LaTeX run. The example uses class book, where \chaptermark, \sectionmark and \subsectionmark are redefined to include \hyperlink with the ...

The mini frame and mini frame in current subsection templates have a box option that will give you squares instead of circles (there's also a tick option producing ticks): \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{Frankfurt} \usecolortheme{dove} \setbeamercolor{section in head/foot}{fg=white, bg=black} \setbeamertemplate{mini frame}[box] \setbeamertemplate{mini ...

The beamer theme Dresden uses a so-called mini frame navigation, i. e. little circles each representing one slide. With \setbeamertemplate{mini frames}{}, you can remove these, but the space is still occupied: To get rid of this gap, you have two possibilities: Remove all \subsection commands from your presentation. Mini frames are only created if there ...

Form your MWE, it is clear that you want to suppress the entry from the navigation bar and not from the sidebar. Anyways, I can offer you two options: 1) To use \appendix just before your bibliography (the entry will still appear in the navigation bar but not in the "main" navigation bar but on a navigation of its own): \documentclass[12pt,english,...

Instead of using \pause I'd recommend using a key visible on as defined in the preamble of the following MWE. The trick is to enclose each level of stack in a scope environment, and pass the key visible on=<num> to the environment to set the overlay effects. I also had to redefine the \cellptr command in the drawstack package to prevent the top right ...

Since Beamer by default only displays dots for subsections, I found that it was easiest to put \AtBeginSection[]{\subsection{}} in the preamble: \documentclass{beamer} \useoutertheme{miniframes} \AtBeginSection[]{\subsection{}} I found this to work better than other answers that messed with counters and left me with output like this:

Use the optional argument of the sectioning commands and leave it empty to not include the unit in the sidebar; the unit will, however, be included in the ToC; an example: \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{Berkeley} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \tableofcontents \end{frame} \section{Test Section One} \begin{frame}test\end{frame} \subsection[]{Test ...

Use the compress option for the Singapore theme: \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme[compress]{Singapore} \begin{document} \section{Test section one} \begin{frame} test \end{frame} \subsection{Test subsection} \begin{frame} test \end{frame} \subsection{Test subsection} \begin{frame} test \end{frame} \subsection{Test subsection} \begin{frame} test \end{frame} ...

First, you need to set the navigations symbol template to be empty: \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{} And then you can insert the symbols in the additional footline using the appropriate inserts: \insertslidenavigationsymbol% \insertframenavigationsymbol% \insertsubsectionnavigationsymbol% \insertsectionnavigationsymbol% \insertdocnavigationsymbol%...

One option is to change the "opacity" for the shaded sections/subsection, and reduce the default 50% factor used to, say, a 20%: \documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{Warsaw} \setbeamertemplate{section in head/foot shaded}[default][20] \setbeamertemplate{subsection in head/foot shaded}[default][20] \begin{document} \section{Test section one} \begin{frame} ...

The PDF format also knows link annotations with named actions, which calls functions of the PDF viewer. The official list of these named actions in the PDF specification for version 1.7 (ISO standard version) is quite short: NextPage, PrevPage FirstPage, LastPage However, the list supported by AcrobatReader is much longer. Section "5 Acrobat-specific ...

The navigation symbols are those normally placed at the bottom. To remove the circles you mentioned you can use: \setbeamertemplate{mini frames}{} Maybe you could use my answer from here?

You can use a \vbox and \vfil inside the beamercolorbox to center its contents: \begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=\paperwidth,ht=\headerheight,dp=0pt]{page header}% \vbox to\headerheight{\vfil\insertsectionnavigationhorizontal{\paperwidth}{\hskip0pt plus1filll}{}\vfil}% \end{beamercolorbox} To get the sections colored in white, the beamer templates section in ...

This is quite a hackish solution: It starts with the miniframes outer theme and patches the internal beamer commands in order to remove the other sections from the headline: \documentclass{beamer} % "Beamer infolines outer theme with miniframe bullets only for the current section" % (http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/45152/3323) \useoutertheme[subsection=...

Here's a solution that doesn't mess around with the subsection numbering, but just patches beamer so that "subsections numbered 0" show their slide entries. Frames immediately below \sections without \subsections get treated as subsection 0 and highlighted in a different group to any actual later \subsections. Therefore, subsections are not needed to get ...

Yes, it is possible; not trivial, but possible: (I will add some explanation when I have time) \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{totcount} \usepackage{tikz} \regtotcounter{section} \newcounter{vertrules} \setbeamercolor{section in head/foot}{fg=green!40!black} \setbeamercolor*{frametitle}{fg=green!40!black} \setbeamercolor{myheadline}{fg=green!40!black,...

You can reduce the navigation symbols to only the slide navigation by setting another beamer template and change the color by changing navigation symbols dimmed. \documentclass{beamer} \defbeamertemplate*% {navigation symbols}% {reduced}% {\hbox{\insertslidenavigationsymbol}} \setbeamercolor{navigation symbols dimmed}{fg=red} \begin{document} \...

As said in the comments, the right way to proceed is to define separately the two templates headline and frametitle. Here is a possible implementation (as test image I used the logo of my university): \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{lmodern} %===================================================================== % Color definition % Setzt Deep Harlequin ...

The problem is that \appendix starts a new \part, which resets the subsection counter (cf. beamerbasesection.sty, l.112). Like this, the mini frames aren't shown anymore in the appendix. To solve the problem, you can prevent the resetting of the counter by patching the internal beamer macro \beamer@part: \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \patchcmd{\beamer@...

You can use the bookmarksnumbered option for hyperref or the numbered option for bookmark: \documentclass{book} \usepackage[bookmarksnumbered]{hyperref} \begin{document} \chapter{Test} \section{Test section} \end{document} or \documentclass{book} \usepackage[numbered]{bookmark} \begin{document} \chapter{Test} \section{Test section} \end{document}

Including the OP's code snippet in a working example results in two frames with the same title (if one uncomments the second \frametitle). The first frame contains two slides (a list with one item which is uncovered on the second slide), the second frame contains a graphics. As there are two frames, there are two "dot" entries in the header (assuming, e.g., ...
