Beamer Manual

Getting Started

6 Solution Templates

In the subdirectories of the directory beamer/doc/solutions you will find solution templates in different languages. A solution template is a -text that “solves” a specific problem. Such a problem might be “I need to create a 20 minute talk for a conference” or “I want to create a slide that introduces the next speaker” or “I want to create a table that is uncovered piecewise.” For such a problem, a solution template consists of a mixture of a template and an example that can be used to solve this particular problem. Just copy the solution template file (or parts of it) and freely adjust them to your needs.

The collecting of beamer solution templates has only begun and currently there are only very few of them. We hope that in the future more solutions will become available and we would like to encourage users of the beamer class to send us solutions they develop. We would also like to encourage users to help in translating solutions to languages other than English and German. If you have written a solution or a translation, please feel free to send it to us (make sure however, that it contains about the same amount of explanations and justifications as do the existing solutions).

The following list of solution templates is sorted by the length of the talks for which they provide a template. As always, the solutions can be found in the directory beamer/doc/solutions.
