Hi Sebastien,

there is now a new option org-beamer-frame-default-options, and the automatically generated to will be wrapped into a frame with title.

The few things I'm tackling right now are:

- How to get a TOC with a frame title, without having to add it explicitly?

I think you need to add it explicitly with \tableofcontents? In beamer, I
simply typically have

 \frametitle{Table of contents}

I guess I wasn't clear...

If I use the option `toc' for the export:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+OPTIONS:   toc:t
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

then I get a slide with the table of contents. Automatically. The only
"criticism" I did is that there was no title to the generated frame.

Hence, the workaround was setting the `toc' option to `nil' and adding such a
code by myself:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+BEAMER: \frame{\frametitle{Outline}\tableofcontents}
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

But better (IMHO) would be that such a code gets inserted automatically (with a frame title set, for example, to `Outline') when the `toc' export option is
set to `t', and when we're in a beamer class.

Is it better expressed?

- How to get the TOC repeated when changing of section, with the new item
 highlighted? See my manual essay ;-)

Again, beamer supports this easily so I would suggest simply adding some direct latex code at the start of your org file. The latex code I use is:


You could simply put this in one line with #+latex_header: as in (untested):

#+latex_header: \AtBeginSection[]{ \begin{frame} \frametitle{Topic} \tableofcontents[currentsection] \end{frame}}

Better is:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
\AtBeginSection[] % Do nothing for \section*
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Thanks Eric and Christian for your input on this!

Best regards,

Sébastien Vauban
