I will try with Nicolas' new exporter to see if that's the same or not.

You're absolutely right on the clarity level. Thanks for this workaround.

However, it does not work in the intended way: here, the text which has to
appear on the 2 first slides is simply made transparent on the 3^rd... It
still occupies its place.

I used only' so that the text would be dropped, as (in my practice example,
not in this ECM) there is not enough space for showing the 3 bullets at the
same time.

I've tried the above within multiple different themes (Antibes, Bergen,
Madrid, ...) but that does not change anything: the space of the 1^st bullet
is still there, not reusable for the last 2 bullets.

Is this due to some configurable parameter?  Is there a way to make the above
Org writing behave as only' (versus uncover')?

Best regards,
Seb
