# Overlays to work with framebreaks

Anonymous created an issue

Recently, I discovered that overlays (for instance, <+-> in listing environments) do not work with frame breaks. We need

• automatic frame breaking (allowframebreaks) to make the document logically structural: originally, TeX is to support logical structuring of the documents, separating content and presentation;

• overlays to make the presentation interesting.

Then why can't we achieve both at the same time?

Because there is, IMHO at least, no logical way to have both at the same time on the same frame. Think about cases where frame breaks automatically, for example.

I believe that it could be done that something like this

\item<1-3> Bla
\item<2-3> Bla
\item<3> Bla
\framebreak%

\item<4-5> Bla
\item<5> Bla


generates 5 pages, where third has first three items and fifth has last two items. However, I don't personally need it and generally don't think it's worth the effort.

If you are willing to work on it and provide a good patch, it's more than welcome.

2. I don't see how this can work in any manageable way: the interactions are too complex both at the code level and more importantly for the user.
