Beamer: how to surround frames with a border in article md.?

Postby pfroehlich » Fri Sep 19, 2008 11:03 am

Hi,

I use the beamer class to generate lecture slides and a handout document from the same source. Handouts are prepared with article mode.

The frame template can manipulated in article mode by
\setbeamertemplate{frame begin}
and
\setbeamerteampalte{frame end}

I'd like to make the frame appear with a solid black border in the handout (but not use \includeslide which brings in unnecessary navigations aids etc.). I've been trying something like \fbox{\begin{minipage} for frame begin and \end{minipage}} for frame end, but can't get it to work.

Thank your very much for any suggestions!

Regards
Peter

Peter: Did you ever get an answer to this question? I think I would like to do the same thing - have the slides set off with some marking so that the "notes" text stands out from the slides a bit more.

I know it's 15 years late, but in case anyone stumbles onto this, here's what I do. Add these lines to the beamer article preamble:

\usepackage{tcolorbox}

\mode<article>{\setbeamertemplate{frame begin}{\begin{tcolorbox}[colback=white, colframe=gray,]} \setbeamertemplate{frame end}{\end{tcolorbox}}}
