Customizing Beamer

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

Feather plots customization not working
Hi all, According to the feather function help file, one can change the display of a feather graph using LineSpec. "feather(...,LineSpec) draws a feather plot using the line type, marker symbol, and color specified by LineSpec. " According to LineSpec, to make a line bolder, we use 'LineWidth'. Here is the code from the help file to graph a feather plot: theta = (-90:10:90)*pi/180; r = 2*ones(size(theta)); [u,v] = pol2cart(theta,r); feather(u,v); This works. Now, if you code: theta = (-90:10:90)*pi/180; r = 2*ones(size(theta)); [u,v] = pol2cart(theta,r); feather(u,...

How easy/hard/common is to create Custom Controls in Java?

Custom iterator or custom predicate?

The obvious algorithm is max_element, but do I use a custom iterator or a custom predicate? Should I define a predicate like LessThan2ndElement<T> or an interator adaptor that converts Array2D::iterator to an interator that, when dereferenced, returns the 2nd element of the vector<int> it po...

Expected behavior of tools using Customizers
Hello. I have a question about Customizers. The specification says: "Normally each Customizer will be run in a separate AWT dialog window. The customizer has complete discretion how it chooses to represent itself, and may redraw its appearance as the user navigates/moves through different stages of customization." Does this mean that it is implied that a Customizer will be placed by conformant tools into a new, say, JDialog with no further decoration? Or will a conformant tool always augment the Customizer-displaying "dialog window" to contain widgets for applying and/o...

Help installing a custom look and feel
Hi, As part of a current Uni assignment I am required to write a customised Look and Feel(LAF) and implement it in a java app. So far I have taken an existing LAF and *cough* modified it by renaming all the class instances and package paths to a package I have created for it. The idea was to first get this working effectively (i.e. to be applied to the app GUI) so I could begin to truly modify it and make my own LAF. I currently have a combobox which is populated (manually at the moment from a Vector) with the available system LAFs. On the mouseClicked event of a JButton the LAF is changed u...
