# [Tex/LaTex] Redefining figure* for Beamer

beamerenvironments

I have a single figure* graphic in a separate file (let's just call this x.tex). This file is shared across several latex documents and is inserted with input for each document.

Unfortunately, when I try to insert this in a Beamer slide document with \input{x}, Beamer chokes and says Environment figure* undefined.

I've tried fooling around with newenvironment but I don't know enough about it to create a new definition for figure*.

What's the simplest way to insert this file in a Beamer document without having to modify the file being inserted?

Since beamer doesn't define a figure* environment, you should be able to create one yourself:
\newenvironment{figure*}%

This simply says to create an environment figure* which is identical to the figure environment.
