# Beamer+Xelatex+Hebrew produce empty presentation

created an issue

I am trying to compile some hebrew presentation with xelatex. The code is:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setdefaultlanguage{hebrew}
\setotherlanguage{english}
\newfontfamily\hebrewfontsf{Arial}

\begin{document}
\selectlanguage{hebrew}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{סילבוס}
\begin{itemize}
\item ראשון
\item שני
\item שלישי
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\selectlanguage{english}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Syllabus}
\begin{itemize}
\item First
\item Second
\item Third
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


The compilation reaches to the ends but the slides are empty. Take a look in the attached files.

1. This is caused by polyglossia not by beamer itself. While the lack of RTL support in beamer is not ideal this can't be regarded as a bug in the class.
