Yes. Actually, I have setup (for my lectures) two style files, a beamer- article.sty and a beamer-presentation.sty, which include a common subset (not everything in the presentation is relevant for the article, and vice versa) plus some specific settings for both products (for instance, I want sans serif TIPA fonts in the presentation, but serif in the article). Another helpful thing is branches: If you define a branch in the presentation only, it will be ignored by the article. Thus you can just "branch" stuff you don't want in the article. Vice versa, you can define a branch "article" which is disabled in the presentation. This is a nice extension to the available article/presentation modes of beamer. Jürgen
