Beamer Footline

Postby mrdwustl » Mon Apr 12, 2010 5:20 am

Hi.

I'm making slides in latex and want the footline to appear to have my name and the institution (rather than my name and the title). Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks.

  1. \documentclass{beamer}[10]
  2. \usepackage{pgf}
  3. \usepackage{beamerthemesplit}
  4.  
  5. \definecolor{kugreen}{RGB}{50,93,61}
  6. \definecolor{kugreenlys}{RGB}{132,158,139}
  7. \definecolor{kugreenlyslys}{RGB}{173,190,177}
  8. \definecolor{kugreenlyslyslys}{RGB}{214,223,216}
  9. \setbeamercovered{transparent}
  10. \mode<presentation>
  11. %\usetheme[numbers,totalnumber,compress,sidebarshades]{PaloAlto}
  12. \setbeamertemplate{footline}[title]
  13.  
  14. \usecolortheme[named=kugreen]{structure}
  15. \useinnertheme{circles}
  16. \usefonttheme[onlymath]{serif}
  17. \setbeamercovered{transparent}
  18. \setbeamertemplate{blocks}[rounded][shadow=true]
  19.  
  20. %\logo{\includegraphics[width=1.5cm]{billeder/logo}}
  21. \title{TITLE}
  22. \author{NAME}
  23. \institute{Department of Political Science \\ Washington University in St. Louis}
  24. \date{\today}
  25. \begin{document}

Hi,

you have to set the footline beamer template; the following example code includes the necessary definitions:

  1. \documentclass{beamer}[10]
  2. \usepackage{beamerthemesplit}
  3.  
  4. \definecolor{kugreen}{RGB}{50,93,61}
  5. \definecolor{kugreenlys}{RGB}{132,158,139}
  6. \definecolor{kugreenlyslys}{RGB}{173,190,177}
  7. \definecolor{kugreenlyslyslys}{RGB}{214,223,216}
  8. \setbeamercovered{transparent}
  9. \mode<presentation>
  10.  
  11. \setbeamertemplate{footline}
  12. {%
  13. \leavevmode%
  14. \hbox{\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=.5\paperwidth,ht=2.5ex,dp=1.125ex,leftskip=.3cm plus1fill,rightskip=.3cm]{author in head/foot}%
  15. \usebeamerfont{author in head/foot}\insertshortauthor
  16. \end{beamercolorbox}%
  17. \begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=.5\paperwidth,ht=2.5ex,dp=1.125ex,leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fil]{title in head/foot}%
  18. \usebeamerfont{title in head/foot}\insertshortinstitute
  19. \end{beamercolorbox}}%
  20. \vskip0pt%
  21. }
  22.  
  23. \usecolortheme[named=kugreen]{structure}
  24. \useinnertheme{circles}
  25. \usefonttheme[onlymath]{serif}
  26. \setbeamercovered{transparent}
  27. \setbeamertemplate{blocks}[rounded][shadow=true]
  28.  
  29. \title{TITLE}
  30. \author{NAME}
  31. \institute[Short Institute name]{Department of Political Science -- Washington University in St. Louis}
  32. \date{\today}
  33. \begin{document}
  34.  
  35. \begin{frame}
  36. Test
  37. \end{frame}
  38.  
  39. \end{document}
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,...
