Beamer Itemize Font Size

Postby jp_m » Wed Apr 21, 2010 5:42 pm

I am using the Beamer class to create a presentation in LaTeX. I would like to modify the font sizes of the itemize list items but I cannot seem to do so.

For example, I would like the itemize items to be \Large, subitems \large, subsubitems \small, etc.

Searching through Google and the Beamer manual, I came across \setbeamerfont, but I cannot seem to get it working.

I have tried: \setbeamerfont{itemize subitem}{size=\small}, \setbeamerfont{itemize subbody}{size=\small}

Am I doing something wrong with \setbeamerfont or is there another way to accomplish this?

I struggled with the same problem today and I found that you can use the following commands to change the font size of items, subitems and subsubitems :

\setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate body}{}
\setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate subbody}{size=\small}
\setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate subsubbody}{size=\footnotesize}

See also the beamerfontthemedefault.sty file for more information.
