The preamble should be: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{pgfpages} \setbeameroption{show notes on second screen} i.e. pgfpages rather than pdfpages See the Beamer User Guide sections 19.6 and 22.

You can use the \pgfpageslogicalpageoptions{<number>}{<options>} macro (as you already did) where <number> is the logical number of the frame (1 is above left, 2 is above right, …) and <options> are options, e.g. resized width = <length> width of the resulting frame, <length> can be given in a percentage of \...

It seems you can get pdfpages to change the aspect ratio after all. The original 16x9 document was stored in file test.pdf \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pdfpages} \begin{document} \includepdf[pages=-,height=4.5in,width=6in,fitpaper=true]{test} \end{document}

The page labels in the .pdf file are actually independent of the page numbers in the .aux file. The page labels are also set during shipout but by the hyperref package. The pgfpages package however ships out a physical page after the next/following logical page is finished. This is necessary for the 'two screens with optional second' layout to allow ...

I would just use pdfnup for the task: pdfnup --nup 1x3 --no-landscape --scale 0.9 --delta "0 1cm" --no-tidy slides.pdf yields a file slides-nup.pdf that with the intended layout: The pdfnup shell script is part of the pdfjam collection, which is included in most Linux distros. For MacOS it is available via MacPorts, fink, or brew. On Windows, it should ...

A TeX length (dimen or skip) register does not store the units used when the value is set, whether you use pt or cm or whatever is not recorded and it just saves the value as an integer which is the length in sp, if you look at the value using \the or \showthe then TeX will show the value using pt units (that is, the stored integer divided by 65536) On the ...

Looks like no, unless someone has a fix the author isn't aware of. From the Beamer manual, section 4.6.2 (Printing the Handout): In such cases you can use the pgfpages package, which works directly with pdflatex, lualatex, xelatex and latex plus dvips. Note however that this package destroys hyperlinks. This is due to fundamental flaws in the PDF-...

Here is an example using the package pdfpages that I used in order to do handouts. First, run your beamer document with handout option and call it prep_handout.pdf for example. Then run this tex file to create the handout with several frames per page. Here I used fancyhdr in order to manage the headers/footers. Although you must create a new tex file, ...

You could do this by some sneaky border code stuff which threw away the given path (which is a box around each subpage) and drew just the bottom line for the relevant pages but I don't think that would look all that great since the lines wouldn't join up and wouldn't be vertically centred (as the pages are slightly shrunken). So here's an alternative which ...

There are some timing issues, that I only partially understand. But part of the problem is that at the beginning of the frame when you try to construct the surrounding notes, the material for this has not yet been defined. pgfpages is good enough to wait for this, I believe what you are seeing on page 1 is triggered by the code excuted at the beginning of ...

(Note: this solution uses one pass... but three compilations ! ;-)) Here is a solution using three documents and pdfpages. Compile these three documents in order to get your final booklet. First document with 8 pages A4 (book-pages.tex): \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \begin{document} \Huge 1 \newpage \Huge 2 \newpage \Huge 3 \newpage \Huge 4 \newpage \...

You need to add landscape to the \pgfpagesuselayout command \pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink = 5mm,landscape] And remove the [landscape] option from your \usepackage{geometry}. Here's a minimal document that shows the correct output: \documentclass[french, a4paper]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{...

Using textpos with the absolute option causes different output when using pgfpages (it doesn't cause problems with the handout option when not using pgfpages), even when using \nofiles, because the absolute position is in terms of the physical page, not the logical page. To display a logo in the header, one would ideally use a beamer (outer) theme designed ...

It works OK for me: 123456789ab

pgfpages does the job fine: The text in no page is centred because \centering is applied when the paragraph ends, but you issue \newpage without ending the paragraph. \centering First way \par \begin{center} Second way \end{center} The second method adds vertical spacing while the first does not. For example: Code: \documentclass[a5paper, landscape]{...

For completeness: instead of show notes on second screen you can also use second mode text on second screen which allows you to create a parallel presentation on the second screen. This does not provide the visual features of the note environment (like the small version of the presentation slide) but it does give some flexibility in using overlay ...

This should in principle be possible by not employing the pgfpages package that ships with beamer, but the more generic (1) pdfpages package (note the pdf vs pgf in the package name) in conjuction with (2) pax. From the pdfpages documentation: Links and other interactive features of PDF documents When including pages of a PDF only the so called content ...

pgfpages seems to be running into issues with Beamer, at least according to https://github.com/josephwright/beamer/issues/183 (I'm having the same problem). What I do now is ps2dpf the latex/dvips output (without pgfpages) - which will scale up to the right presentation size - and then run a small pdflatex job on it, calling pdfpages \includepdf[nup=1x2,...

This is not an answer but another solution to your problem. What I propose is to draw all your labels in a file and make copies with pdfpages package help. Your labels file will be: %----labels.tex ---------% \documentclass{article} \usepackage[paperwidth=2in,paperheight=2in,nohead,nofoot]{geometry} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{document} \thispagestyle{empty} ...

\cleardoublepage only does what you want in two-sided printing. So, add option twoside to the class options: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper,twoside]{article}

Thanks for your answer! I expand your answer a little bit, so that it is possible to enter different length and not to think about ratios. Now one can enter a page border and a BCOR length for the top. The border shrink now works as it should. \documentclass[compress, handout]{beamer} \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{...

You can use the components from Compiling only a page range or page selection: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pgfpages}% http://ctan.org/pkg/pgf \pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=2.5mm,landscape] % Taken from https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/96256/5764 \usepackage{multido,atbegshi,etoolbox}% http://ctan.org/pkg/{lipsum,atbegshi,etoolbox} ...

The following solution is really ugly and I hope someone finds a nicer one. I set the papersize explicitly to A4 (the height is half of it, because it consists of two slides): \documentclass[handout, xcolor={dvipsnames,table}]{beamer} \usepackage{pgfpages} % A4 Paper Size and some small additional margin \paperheight=143.5mm %297mm / 2 - 5mm \paperwidth=...

The implementation of animate uses PDF-Annotations, very much as hyperref does for all sorts of hyperlinks. PDF Annotations don't get scaled properly while producing multiple-frames-per-page handouts using the pgfpages sub-package. From the PGF-3.0.0 Manual, §85: A word of warning: using pgfpages will destroy hyperlinks. Actually, the hyperlinks are ...

The problem with redefining \pgfsys@endpicture is that this is called at the end of each PGF graphic you use (including the six tiny navigation symbols on each beamer slide). It is also used to hold special instructions when you use certain drivers; so if you use XeLaTeX you will find the slides are not positioned correctly on the second and later pages. ...

Here is a solution .\rule[-.5cm]{0pt}{0pt} to add some extra vertical space below the page number. \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{pgfpages} \pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,landscape] \makeatletter \def\pgfsys@endpicture{% \makebox[\pgfphysicalwidth]{\the\numexpr\value{page}/4\relax}\rule[-.5cm]{0pt}{0pt}} \makeatother \begin{document} \frame{foo} \...
