[Tex/LaTex] How to disable beamer’s dimming of covered text


In Beamer, when you use \pause \uncover, or <+-> with itemize, the text that is covered is dimmed. But that could be distracting since people can still read ahead. Is there a way to disable this dimming?

On a similar note, it seems the amount of dimming depends on the level of nesting in a list, which can sometimes be even more frustrating since the next bullet separated by several sub-bullets becomes so much more prominent in the middle of the page. Can this be changed too?

I tried \only, but then the text jingles around since the layout thinks the text isn't there. I also tried different themes, but it doesn't seem to change the amount of dimming (of course, I could just be selecting bad themes).

This is covered in Section 17.6 on page 191 of the beamer manual.


hides the content completely. Note that, the content which is already presented and become transparent and the content that is still about to be presented can be distinguished with the options of this command.
