# Text is justified in overlayarea

Hi,

Text is justified in an overlayarea environment, while it is usually flushed left. This does not seem to happen with overprint, though I remember it did with previous versions of beamer.

Here is a reproducer, with beamer 3.07: {{{ \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage[ascii]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{normal} \lipsum[1] \end{frame}

\begin{frame}{overlayarea} \begin{overlayarea}{\textwidth}{13\baselineskip} \lipsum[1] \end{overlayarea} \end{frame}

\begin{frame}{overprint} \begin{overprint} \lipsum[1] \end{overprint} \end{frame}

\end{document} }}}

This is a bit surprising and slightly annoying, though easily worked around by placing a \raggedright command inside each overlayarea environment.

Thanks, Manuel.

1. Reading the manual, I'm not 100% if this is deliberate or not. I'll have a closer look at the code, and either alter it or note the behaviour in the manual
