beamer add tag

Elements that are larger than a beamer frame will protrude into the note page with the `show notes on second screen` option. Normally one does not see this because the note page has a coloured background by default, but I'm using a very simple note page instead of the default one.

How can I crop the beamer frame to avoid this problem?


```
\documentclass{beamer}

\setbeamertemplate{note page}{\insertnote}
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\includegraphics[width=1.5\textwidth]{example-image-duck}
\note{note text}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
```

One can use the `corner width=0pt` option of `pgfpages`. This will ensure that the page is clipped to the desired size. Note that this must be done before `\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen}`:

```
\documentclass{beamer}

\setbeamertemplate{note page}{\insertnote}

\usepackage{pgfpages}
\pgfpagesuselayout{rounded corners}[corner width=0pt]
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\includegraphics[width=1.5\textwidth]{example-image-duck}
\note{note text}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
```

This trick also works for all other applications of `pgfpages`, for example to create handouts:

```
\documentclass[aspectratio=169,handout]{beamer}

\mode<handout>{%
  \usepackage{pgfpages}
  \pgfpagesuselayout{rounded corners}[corner width=0pt]
  \pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm]
}

\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=yellow}

\begin{document}

{
  \setbeamertemplate{background canvas}{\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth]{example-image-duck}}
  \begin{frame}
    \titlepage
  \end{frame}
}

\begin{frame}
  My second slide
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
  My third slide
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
  My fourth slide
\end{frame}

\end{document}
```
