Printing presentation without overlays ?

Postby lyxer » Sun Jan 10, 2016 3:22 pm


I have a presentation with overlays made with Beamer in Lyx 2.1.4 . I'd like to compile it and print the pdf output without overlays. How can I do this?

I've done some research and some suggested the use of the command (\documentclass[handout]{beamer}), however, when I use this command in the Preamble I get conflict with the class I'm using under Setting -> Document Class in Lyx which is Beamer. The current stuff I have in the Preamble in the original presentation looks something like this:
  1. \usetheme{Darmstadt}
  2. \usecolortheme{beaver}
  3. \useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes}
  4. \usepackage{amsmath}
  5. \usepackage{amsfonts}
  6. \usepackage{color}
  7. \usepackage[absolute,overlay]{textpos}
  8. \usepackage{graphicx}

I tried using the class: "Tufte Handout" in Setting -> Document class instead of Beamer but I got a bunch of errors like:
"No Layout found" or "missing begin document".

Not sure what to do. I just want to get the same exact presentation including the colors and formats but without overlays.

Any help is appreciated.

Go to the document setting, Document Class and add handout to the class options.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
