blockenvironments. Special block types can be enforced by setting headline's
BEAMER_ENVproperty1 to an appropriate value (see
org-beamer-environments-defaultfor supported values and
org-beamer-environments-extrafor adding more).
BEAMER_ENVproperty is set to either
againframe, the headline will become, respectively, an appendix, a note (within frame or between frame, depending on its level), a note with its title ignored or an
\againframecommand. In the latter case, a
BEAMER_REFproperty is mandatory in order to refer to the frame being resumed, and contents are ignored.
Also, a headline with an
ignoreheading environment will have its
contents only inserted in the output. This special value is useful to have
data between frames, or to properly close a

The former is translated as an overlay/action specification, or a default
overlay specification when enclosed within square brackets. The latter
specifies options2 for the
current frame or block. The export back-end will automatically wrap
properties within angular or square brackets when appropriate.
Moreover, headlines handle the
BEAMER_COL property. Its value should
be a decimal number representing the width of the column as a fraction of the
total text width. If the headline has no specific environment, its title
will be ignored and its contents will fill the column created. Otherwise,
the block will fill the whole column and the title will be preserved. Two
contiguous headlines with a non-
BEAMER_COL value share the same

without such a property. This environment is generated automatically.
Although, it can also be explicitly created, with a special
BEAMER_ENV property (if it needs to be set up with some
specific options, for example).
