### questions about slide structure in beamer

Hi guys.

I'm writing my Ms.C. defense presentation on beamer and I have a couple of questions.

I want to create a slide where is divided to three parts. On the top, there are two columns (left and right). On the left there is some text and on the right there is a figure. At the bottom, I wand to have a wide table which spreads over the whole page. I have added the code of the slide at the end of the message. I have also tried to use the columns environment with the same results

I have two problems.

1. I want the figure to be in the middle (regarding the y scale) but the figure sticks to the top. I think it's because of the overlayarea environment.
2. The table doesn't show on the page.

Thank you.

Yotam

Hello Yotam,

usually it is quite common to post these kinds of requests according to the board rules, especially section 2 called "when posting".

But I go ahead and say that you should start every minipage-environment like
1. \begin{minipage}[t]{0.45\textwidth}
. You should check out this page for more information. I checked the translation myself and it's actually flawless, if I'm not mistaken.

Or you could make a tabular which includes 3 columns and features a minipage in each column, but from my own experience I can tell you that you should definitely and all the possible syllabifications via
1. \-
.

A sidenote as an advice, but not really important, you should write
1. $\tau_{\text dis}*$
and other terms alike as
1. $\tau_{\text{dis}}^{*}$

Hi.

I'm not sure what I did wrong in my previus post but I assume you want a mwe. Also, I wasn't sure if this is the right thread for this issue.

Anyhow, here is a simpler code:

1. \documentclass{beamer}
2. \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
3. \usepackage{graphicx}
4.
6.
7. \AtBeginSubsection[]
8. {
9. \begin{frame}<beamer>
10. \frametitle{Layout}
11. \tableofcontents[currentsection,currentsubsection]
12. \end{frame}
13. }
14.
15. \begin{document}
16.
17. \begin{frame}
18. \frametitle{KIE}
19. \begin{minipage}{0.45\textwidth}
20. \begin{itemize}
21. \item <1-> some text
22. \item <2-> even more text
23. \end{itemize}
24. \end{minipage}
25. \begin{minipage}{0.45\textwidth}
26. \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{p.pdf}
27. \end{minipage}
28. \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
29. \centering
30. \begin{tabular}[t]{ccccc}
31. a & a & a & a & a \\
32. a & a & a & a & a \\
33. a & a & a & a & a \\
34. a & a & a & a & a
35.
36. \end{tabular}
37. \end{minipage}
38. \end{frame}
39.
40. I only see the top line of the table. Also, I didn't manage, no matter what I tried, to lower down the figure.
41.
42. As for the tau tip. I know it should be done this way, I'm just not used to it.
43.
44. Thanks.
45.
46. \end{document}

edit:

I think that the problem is that the table is too low, how can I confirm this?

I ran your code and since you didn't upload the file "p.pdf", I got a totally different result. Maybe if you upload the file, someone could help you.
My result was that I could everything. The table was in the middle on the bottom, the graphic in the upper right corner...
