Issue #192 resolved

beamer 3.18 with dvipdfmx breaks the shadow of block environments

Anonymous created an issue

Following code should show the problem: {{{


\documentclass[dvipdfmx]{beamer} \setbeamertemplate{blocks}[rounded][shadow=true] \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{block}{a} a


\end{block} \begin{block}{b} b



\end{block} \begin{block}{c} c \end{block} \begin{block}{d} d \end{block} \end{frame} \end{document} }}}

    Okay, this is linked to the fix to #161, where the change uses pgf-based code to include a real transparency. I suspect the issue is that the back-end there cannot do real transparencies with the dvipdfmx back-end. I'll have to think about this: I guess I'll end up having to go for a driver-based conditional.

    Well, I have encountered the same problem. I have to use latex + dvips (for I have to use PSTricks). I hope it will be fixed as soon as possible, for i have to give a lecture next weekend...

    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!
