You could also try "shrink" which forces beamer slides to be x-percent smaller than normal ("a typographic nightmare"). And you can chose a plain (\begin{frame}[plain]) slide without additional headings which enlarges the space available for your table. However, it is hard to answer your question without seeing your latex-code. A lot can be done by using latex's tabularx or tabular* command and smaller fonts. Another important question is: is your table too wide or too long? This really makes a difference given the usual landscape format. johannes owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu schrieb am 28/04/2011 11:34:20: > Leaving aside the question of whether it is a good idea to put too > much numbers on a slide, I would try "\scalebox{0.7}{your-table- > input}" (\scalebox is from the -graphicx- package).
