### beamer | Add Frame Number to the Footer

Hi everybody,

I'm just starting using LaTeX for beamer presentations and I want to add page (frame) numbers to my presentation maintaining the original foot line that has my name and the title of the presentation.

I used \setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number] but it destroys my original foot line. I need it with the format "frame number/total number of frames". I searched and tested but no success! Is there any to to keep the same footer (my name and the title of the presentation) add the date and the the pages with this format "frame number/total number of frames"?

Best regards,
Paulo

That depends to your used beamer theme. The reason why you should create a minimal example.

I am at work now, so I have only the PDF file here. If I can put here an image, here it is.

How can I put the format "frame number/total number of frames", at right, with the same footer?

Another thing I don't want all those 'topic's on top, just that one I have in the slide. how can I do it?

regards,
Paulo

As soon as you have access to the source file, cut this down to a minimal example.

I am using this..
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[11pt]{beamer}\usepackage{beamerthemeshadow}\usepackage[portuguese]{babel}\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc}\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts,textcomp,setspace,graphicx}\title{Graph and Spectral Clustering}\author{Paulo Sousa}\institute {PDMA - Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto}\date{\footnotesize{\today}}\begin{document}  \frame{\titlepage}\frame{\tableofcontents}\section{Classificação de dados}\begin{frame}...

Hi Paulo!

It would be good if a posted code example would be compilable, which makes helping easy. If I complete the code above by
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
...\end{frame}\end{document}

it's possible to test a solution. So I can suggest to use this in your preamble:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\expandafter\def\expandafter\insertshorttitle\expandafter{%  \insertshorttitle\hfill%  \insertframenumber\,/\,\inserttotalframenumber}

Here, we extend the macro which is used for printing the title in the footer, to print the frame number on the right. I used this method in this blog post: Beamer: frame number in split theme footline.

Hi Paulo,

you could change that by using the compress option:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[11pt,compress]{beamer}

However, I think this is obsolete:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\usepackage{beamerthemeshadow}

Instead, you could try the theme Warsaw, recommended as replacement for the shadow theme:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\usetheme{Warsaw}

If you don't like the header at all, perhaps choose another theme.

So choose another theme, which is not based on the split theme, which brings this header. Just browse themes in the beamer user guide.
