# (Org-Beamer Exporter) I would like to have a LaTeX snippet inbetween frames

I would like to change the beamer presentation background. To that end, I have to issue the following command between two frames (that is, outside any frame)

\usebackgroundtemplate{\includegraphics[height=\paperheight]{../Apresetacoes/Apres1/img/5.png}}


As frames are continuous in orgmode - either content are in the last or the next header - , I'm unable to have this piece of code in between frames.

*** Quadrado  rotativo
:PROPERTIES:
:BEAMER_COL: 1
# :BEAMER_ENV: block
:END:

Something

#+beamer: \framebreak
#+beamer: \usebackgroundtemplate{\includegraphics[height=\paperheight]{../Apresetacoes/Apres1/img/5.png}}

***
:PROPERTIES:
:BEAMER_opt: standout
:END:

\begin{modern-quote-env}
\begin{modern-quote}
\color{red} \textbf{Perguntas?} \rule{\linewidth}{0.5mm}
\end{modern-quote}
\end{modern-quote-env}


Gives:

\begin{frame}[label={sec:orgc82c151}]{Quadrado  rotativo}
something

\framebreak %% Trying to end the frame! (Not working)
\usebackgroundtemplate{\includegraphics[height=\paperheight]{../Apresetacoes/Apres1/img/5.png}}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}[label={sec:org008ba0c},standout]{}
\begin{modern-quote-env}
\begin{modern-quote}
\color{red} \textbf{Perguntas?} \rule{\linewidth}{0.5mm}
\end{modern-quote}
\end{modern-quote-env}
\end{frame}


But, I want to achieve this export:

\begin{frame}[label={sec:orgc82c151}]{Quadrado  rotativo}
something
\end{frame}

\usebackgroundtemplate{\includegraphics[height=\paperheight]{../Apresetacoes/Apres1/img/5.png}}

\begin{frame}[label={sec:org008ba0c},standout]{}
\begin{modern-quote-env}
\begin{modern-quote}
\color{red} \textbf{Perguntas?} \rule{\linewidth}{0.5mm}
\end{modern-quote}
\end{modern-quote-env}
\end{frame}

• I don't know of a clean way to do this, but if worse comes to worst, you can use a filter to make arbitrary transformations on the "final" output of the exporter - e.g. you can search for the appropriate place and insert the snippet you want there. See also the exporter developer documentation on Worg, the Org mode wiki. Sep 28, 2021 at 13:42
• For this I use a "fake" headline, at the same level of the frame headlines with the :ignore: tag and insert the content under this headline. The headline is not considered bu the content is. If this seems acceptable for you, I will post it as an answer.

• @Lgen Please, post a MWE as example; like the properties explicitly in a orgmode setup. That's acceptable to me, as far as the background of the following beamer-exported frame changes (that's acceptable to me) Sep 30, 2021 at 15:47

For this I use a "fake" headline at the chosen level with the :ignore: tag, and insert the content under this headline. The headline is not considered, but the content is.

A working example (with a fake headline at the first level) :

#+OPTIONS:   H:2 toc:nil
#+LaTeX_CLASS: beamer
