[Tex/LaTex] Warsaw theme – Frame title bar covers top infolines


I'm making a presentation using Warsaw theme, but with infolines at the top of every frame. The problem is that \frametitle command makes the title bar to cover part of the top infolines bar, as you can see in this image:

I thought of two solutions:

  • shifting down the title bar in the Warsaw theme;
  • choose another theme and add the gradient myself (with the same colors as Warsaw theme).

I'm new to beamer, so I don't know how to do this.

Best Answer

This bug has been fixed in beamer version 3.23, so the fix provided in this answer shouldn't be necessary any more!

This is most likely a beamer bug, which was already reported, but closed as not reproducible. A workaround is to shift the frame title down as you suggested, which can be done by using


after having loaded Warsaw and infolines.

Example code

\frametitle{Frame title}
