Beamer notes snippet

No-fuss Beamer notes that work with xelatex

Here is a snippet for using Beamer notes with xelatex, removing all the fluff in the standard template. (Mostly for myself, as I will forget).

%% Enable notes
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen}

%% Simplify layout of notes
\setbeamertemplate{note page}[plain]
\setbeamerfont{note page}{size=\footnotesize}
\addtobeamertemplate{note page}{\setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate subbody}{size=\footnotesize}}{}

%% Workaround for XeLaTeX; otherwise overlays keep being white
     \usebeamercolor[fg]{normal text}%
