beamer and long titles

Postby CoolnessItself on Wed Nov 11th, 2009

This might be general to classes other than beamer, but my problem is specifically with beamer.

The main beamer site lists an example, which I've reproduced below. The only thing I've changed is the title, to Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{beamerthemesplit}

\title{Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb}
\author{Till Tantau}
\date{\today}

\begin{document}

\frame{\titlepage}

\section[Outline]{}
\frame{\tableofcontents}

\section{Introduction}
\subsection{Overview of the Beamer Class}
\frame
{
  \frametitle{Features of the Beamer Class}

  \begin{itemize}
  \item<1-> Normal LaTeX class.
  \item<2-> Easy overlays.
  \item<3-> No external programs needed.      
  \end{itemize}
}
\end{document
}

The footer at the bottom has the entire title, but it is cut off. Is there a command to either
a) change the footer to only display a truncated version, OR
b) have some kind of combination of a title and a "minititle," so I could say
\title{Dr. Strangelove}
\minititle{or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb}
And the footer would display title and the first page would display both title and minititle?

Hi,

use the optional argument:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\title[Short title]{Long title}
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,...

Read Section 3.3 (Title material, p. 17) of the beamer manual.
