Hi all,

I would like to have a handout, where some frames will be automatically

What I would like to do in TEX, or internally in LyX, is the following:

\begin{frame}handout:0
\frametitle{A title bla bla bla}
*Some content. bla bla bla
*\end{frame}


Some times it works, some times it doesn't, and I get the ERROR
file does not exist:  c:/document and
settings/.../temp/lyx_tempdir.Hp3316/lyx_tempbuf0/filename.pdf

Can anyone give me a hint ??



The file does not exist error probably means LaTeX blew up trying to 
compile the document; check Document  LaTeX log to see if there's an 
error message.  Assuming you put handout:0 in ERT at the very 
beginning of the frame title, it seems that it should work, barring a 
bug in Beamer.


All else failing, you might try putting the frames to be suppressed in a 
branch of the LyX doc, then deactivate that branch for handouts 
(activate for slide shows).  I just ran a quick test, and it worked fine 
for me.

Hi Erez,

You can use handout option of Beamer, but it sometimes fails to
exclude overlays. So, what I usually do is to use PDFjam
(http://www.warwick.ac.uk/go/pdfjam) after creating PDF. It includes
an executable called pdfnup which should be called something like:

pdfnup --nup 3x3 --paper a4paper --orient landscape \
 --trim -5mm -5mm -5mm -5mm --tidy true (source PDF file)

If you want to pick up some frames, you can specify an option, e.g.
--pages 1-10,15,19-20.

Uh, it seems not to work on Windows. So, you may want to install
Cygwin to do the above procedure.

Hi Erez,

You can use "handout" option of Beamer, but it sometimes fails to
exclude overlays. So, what I usually do is to use PDFjam
(http://www.warwick.ac.uk/go/pdfjam) after creating PDF. It includes
an executable called "pdfnup" which should be called something like:

pdfnup --nup 3x3 --paper a4paper --orient landscape \
 --trim "-5mm -5mm -5mm -5mm" --tidy true (source PDF file)

If you want to pick up some frames, you can specify an option, e.g.
"--pages 1-10,15,19-20".
