Highlight a TOC entry in Beamer

Postby lyxer » Sun Aug 10, 2014 1:56 pm


I'm trying to highlight the entries in the TOC upon
entering a new section in a beamer presentation (in Lyx).
While reading around I came across the command:
\tableofcontents[currentsection] . It works fine, however,
the entries in the TOC become far away from each other as I enter every section.

Why is this happening and how to fix it?

The pictures I'm attaching explain better. Pic1 is the TOC
and Pic2 shows what happens when I enter the section.

* TOC -> Table of Content

For questions like this, please always post a minimal example. My guess is that you need to press tab before your ERT to nest it.

I'm attaching an example with more questions.

1- In the outline slide the entries in the Table of Contents appear normal. However, upon entering any section the entries in the TOC become far away. How to fix this?

2- In section 1, I can replace equation y1 with y2 using the \overprint command. However, the y3 and y4 equations do not appear on the ensuing slides. Instead, equation y5 appears. Why is this happening?

3- In section 2, I'm able to replace the three bullet items. However I want them to be displayed one at a time. How can I do this? I tried using "Default Overlay Specifications +-" but it doesn't work?

4- Finally, in section 3, I want to display each line of the equation at a time. Again I'm not sure how? In Latex they use the \uncover command inside the equation mode, however, in Lyx this didn't work with me.

Any help is appreciated
