# Excluding frames from handout when exporting to LaTeX Beamer

I would like to exclude certain slides when I export my document as a handout using the corresponding option #+LaTeX_CLASS_OPTIONS: [handout].

I know what I need to arrive at in LaTeX to achieve this:

\begin{frame}<handout:0>
...
\end{frame}


And I know that I can use the property BEAMER_OPT in Org Mode to specify frame arguments like shrink that will be passed on as optional frame options in square brackets to get, e.g., \begin{frame}[shrink]:

* Slide title
:PROPERTIES:
:BEAMER_OPT: shrink
:END:


However, how can I use Org Mode to properly pass on the <handout:0> option in the required format in angle brackets?

• Can you try with :PROPERTIES: :BEAMER_ACT: <handout:0> :END: ?

• Yeah, it works! Great, thanks a lot! :) How could I have found out? I couldn't find this option anywhere and maybe there are even more options I can use from org-mode that would be useful. Jul 6 '20 at 8:24
• This was just a lucky guess. I found an example that used a similar syntax for blocks and thought it might be worth a try in case this also works for frames
