Beamer Handout

Postby Mikerada6 on Tue Jan 11th, 2011

I would like to create a handout of my beamer document for my class. However I would like it to have keywords blanked out forcing the students to fill it in for themselves. Is it possible to do such?

It would help to have more specific information about what you want to do, including a minimal working example. At the moment, the best I could suggest would be to define the same command differently for the different modes. That, is consider this code:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass{beamer}

\newcommand{\mykeyword}[1]{\alert{#1}}

\mode<handout> {
   \renewcommand{\mykeyword}[1]{\underline{\phantom{#1}}}
}
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}

The capital of Russia is \mykeyword{Moscow}.

\end{frame}

\end{document
}
 


That will generate something like this:

pres.png
pres.png (2.92 KiB) Viewed 673 times


However, if you change the first line to \documentclass[handout]{beamer} and process the handout, instead you'll get:

handout.png
handout.png (1013 Bytes) Viewed 673 times


But I don't know whether that suits your needs or not.
