# Beamer manual: add example to "Incremental Specifications"

Hello,

in my opinion the offset feature in section 9.6.4 "Incremental Specifications" could use an example. To the last paragraph on page 91 the following should be added:

Among others, this can be used to start uncovering item on slide 2 as follows:

\begin{itemize}[<+(1)->] \item Apple \item Peach \item Plum \item Orange \end{itemize}

Bye, Mike

1. I'm not really familiar with this particular piece of beamer syntax! I'll have to study it a bit more, unless of course you can write an improved version and post it here.

Hello,

well, there is not much to improve. But here is an MWE:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Method 1}
\begin{itemize}
\item<2-> Apple
\item<3-> Peach
\item<4-> Plum
\item<5-> Orange
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Method 2}
\begin{itemize}[<+(1)->]
\item Apple
\item Peach
\item Plum
\item Orange
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


Methods 1 and 2 produce the same result. But I read the section in the manual at least 3 times until I even noticed that "Incremental Specifications" may be useful for starting to uncover item from slide 2 on.

Bye, Mike
