The only problem I encountered were:
1) presentations I created earliuer, had problems with the paper size.
I copied the content simply into a new document of class
presentation(beamer) and then the article(beamer) also worked.

Effectively, they are only evaluated for presentations.

Otherwise: straight forward. Try it out: if it does not work, I can
send a small example.
