# enumerate vs. beamerarticle

created an issue

Hi all,

Thanks for making beamer live again, it's one of the most beautiful existing tools.

First, a small grief: I download the zip, and I can't make use of it, because it's full to $Header$, which, apparently, cause plenty of parse errors. I had to comment out a couple of lines involving \beamer@parseid to get it to work.

Now to the point.

The enumerate package seems to be very well supported in the beamer class, but it does not work at all in the beamerarticle mode. This is a pity. The doc does mention that you have to usepackage enumerate yourself, but it makes no difference. The following example shows that it does not work. Remove the beamerarticle use to see what the expected output is.

Cheers! {{{

# !latex

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{beamerarticle} \usepackage{enumerate}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[(1)] \item Foo \begin{enumerate}[(i)] \item bar \item baz \end{enumerate} \item Foo \begin{enumerate}[i --- ] \item bar \item baz \item quux \end{enumerate} \end{enumerate}

\end{document}

This is nontrivial. Beamer style files redefine enumerate environment. We could probably implement this functionality within beamer itself easier than fix compatibility with this package (and this is a good idea in my opinion).

Perhaps Joseph can provide some insight here, as he has more experience with (La)TeX programming.

Oh, and Till is "guilty" for making beamer what it is, our participation in all this is still nothing compared to work he did :-)

I do expect this to be non-trivial, yet I also suspect it should not be too hard, since the features of {enumerate} *are* supported in the beamer mode, it's only in article mode that something goes wrong.

Thanks a lot for having had a look at it!

I'm a bit busy just at the moment, but I'll try to look at this within the next few days to at least give an estimate on the likely time to fix things.

I may have tracked this down: I can't test just yet, but I will when I get home from work. I suspect there is a bug in beamerbaselocalstructure.sty.

Brilliant, thanks!
