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 create a new pgfpages layout that uses the corner width=0pt option. This will ensure that the page is clipped to the desired size:


\documentclass{beamer}

\setbeamertemplate{note page}{\insertnote}

\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen}
\pgfpagesdeclarelayout{my two screens with optional second}{%
}{
\pgfpagesphysicalpageoptions{%
logical pages=2,%
physical height=\pgfpageoptiontwoheight,%
physical width=\pgfpageoptiontwowidth,%
last logical shipout=1%
}
\pgfpageslogicalpageoptions{1}{%
center=\pgfpageoptionfirstcenter,%
corner width=0pt,
}%
\pgfpageslogicalpageoptions{2}{%
center=\pgfpageoptionsecondcenter,%
copy from=2%
}%
}
\pgfpagesuselayout{my two screens with optional second}

\begin{document}

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

\end{document}
