Issue #161 wontfix

[Patch] Real transparency for box shadows

created an issue


I have tested it, and it makes the shadows of boxes transparent.

My current beamer is beamer 2007/03/11 cvs version 3.07

Is there any problem to apply them? Do you need more testcases? Maybe this is fixed in the latest version?

    It is sufficient to just add the two variables \newdimen\bmb@boxwidth \newdimen\bmb@boxheight to the beginning and to override beamers \endbeamerboxesrounded with the one from the patch. this can for example be done in your own beamer template by adding the \def\endbeamerboxesrounded part at the end of your theme. Right now I have found no issues with this approach so far...

    Back out use of real transparency of shadows

    This reopens issue #161 and closes issue #192

    The problem here is that while the code works for pdflatex, if fails with the latex + dvips + ps2pdf and latex + dvipdfmx routes. I suspect an issue here is actually with the pgf back-end, but for the moment we want something which at least works!

    This patch started giving trouble:

    ./beamerouterthemeshadow.sty:97: LaTeX Error: Command \beamer@@tmpop@frametitle@shadow theme already defined. Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

    but I haven't had time to find a fix. However, the output still looks right (with pdflatex).

    Ah no, this was my mistake. It still works flawlessly. Just add the files to your current directory.

    I'm sure that the whole files are not needed, but it is difficult for me to understand what is the precise fix here. If someone could produce a smaller fix that would be very much appreciated.
