Creating slides with Beamer

Postby etp94 » Wed Dec 07, 2016 8:22 pm

Hello! I'm trying to make some slides by using Beamer, I'm looking at this guide:

I simply put my information at the example code, and it seems that my name, my institute name and my title, are too long to fit in the footer of the slide.


  1. \documentclass{beamer}
  3. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  4. \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
  5. \usepackage[spanish,activeacute,es-lcroman,es-tabla]{babel}
  7. \usetheme{Boadilla}
  9. \title{Diseño de un generador de números aleatorios mediante FPGA}
  11. \author{Esteban Torres Pérez}
  12. \institute{Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara campus Tabasco}
  13. \date{\today}
  15. \begin{document}
  17. \begin{frame}
  18. \titlepage
  19. \end{frame}
  21. \end{document}

The theme is Boadilla, so I don't know if I can change some setups of the theme in order to skip the institute name print at the foot of the title slide.

Thanks for reading!

Hello Esteban!

You can provide the short title in square brackets as optional argument. You can even let it empty. Such as:

  1. \title[Generador de números]{Diseño de un generador de números aleatorios mediante FPGA}
  2. \author{Esteban Torres Pérez}
  3. \institute[]{Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara campus Tabasco}
