### Customizing Beamer

• Email
• Follow

I'm using the Copenhagen theme along with \useroutertheme{smoothtree}
since I like the three-tiered toc lines in the header. However,
smoothtree also makes these lines "fuzzy," which I don't like.

How do I get the three-tiered toc lines in the header while keeping
them solid and not "fuzzy?"

I'm defining my own footer like this:

\setbeamertemplate{footline}{%
\begin{beamercolorbox}{footlinecolor}%
\end{beamercolorbox}}

but the text extends all the way to the left and right ends of the page. What
variable can I reference to use the same left and right margins in the footer
as there are in the header?

Yeah, I tried that, but it inserts these |- graphics objects, which
I don't want either. I just want the text, properly indented.

ok

for the second question, I would play with the \hspace command:
I do not know where the headers margins are stored (could not find in
the user guide) but you can control visually orfind the exact header
margins somewhere.

\setbeamertemplate{footline}{%
\hspace*{10pt}\insertshortdate\hfill \insertinstitute \hfill

What I'd do (probably not the best solution) is:

1 - locate beamerouterthemetree.sty in your computer
2 - copy/paste it in your working directory
3 - rename it as beamerouterthememytree.sty
4 - open it and comment the following lines:
%\beamer@tree@showhookstrue
%\DeclareOptionBeamer{hooks}{\csname
beamer@tree@showhooks#1\endcsname}
%\ProcessOptionsBeamer
5 - in your main document, use: \useoutertheme{mytree}

this will use the tree outer theme without the |- thing

Howdy, I'm using Beamer to create a presentation, and I'm currently using the Darmstadt theme. I'm quite happy with this layout with one exception. For each section there is a set of circles indicating the subsection and progression through each subsection. If I only have a few slides this looks fine. However I'm pushing 90 slides and I'll probably top off at over 150, so this line of circles is getting crowded and going off the page. So here is my question can I either eliminate this line of little circles or have it only display the progression through the curr...

Beamer: customizing block envrionment
Hi All, I am using beamer 3.06, and would like to know if there's a way to customize the background color (and the bullet color of itemized environments) for block environments? I have only managed to get blue and green blocks (the latter via an "exampleblock"). Would it be possible, say, to get a red block? If it matters, I am using the inner color theme "rose" and inner theme "rounded". Many thanks! Regards, - Sam > Would it be possible, say, to get a red block?

The look includes two header %% lines that contain the title, the current section and the CIM logo. %% Declare the look of the presentation.

customizing LOOP for a custom class
I generally find the LOOP constructs more readable than various DO constructs or MAP-this-and-that with LAMBDA. However, sometimes i need to iterate in some way over a custom object. Python has the ability to define what the FOR loop does with an instance of a custom class. This does not seem soooo difficult to implement in CL. I'd try to do it myself, but i'd perfer to use a standard mechanism if there is one. Here is an example. ;; here i define what it means to iterate over a MOSAIC (defmethod map-mosaic (fun (mosaic mosaic)) (loop for row from 1 to (rows mosaic) do...
