# [Tex/LaTex] Error when inserting a PDF page into a Beamer presentation

beamerpdfpages

I'm using pdfpages to insert a page from a pdf file into my Beamer presentation, but the result is a completely empty page. Here is smaller version of the file:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{epstopdf}
\usepackage{xypdf}
\usepackage{eso-pic}
\usepackage{everyshi}
\usepackage{beamerthemesplit}
\usepackage{pdfpages}

\begin{document}
\includepdf[pages={61}]{IA_Residential_Full_FINAL.pdf}
\end{document}


Not sure if it matters, I'm using MikTeX with pdfLaTeX. I've searched the web and haven't been able to figure what I'm doing wrong.

The beamer user guide (p.19) provides a solution:

Commands like \includepdf only work outside frames as they produce pages “by themselves.” You may also wish to say

\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=}

when you use such a command since the background (even a white background) will otherwise be printed over the image you try to include.

So the code would be:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{pdfpages}

\begin{document}
{
\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=}
\includepdf[pages={61}]{IA_Residential_Full_FINAL.pdf}
}
\end{document}
