#StackBounty: #beamer #presentations #frame-title #pgfpages Customize title of beamer note pages

Bounty: 100

I’d like to customize the title area of the note pages for a beamer document. I’ve changed the background/foreground colors of note title and note page respectively, and intend to keep them that way (in this example).

In addition, I’d like to remove from the note page the date, slides title, and footnote associated with the title (on the corresponding slide, if any). I’d also want to remove the thumbnail image of the slide on the right. Finally, I want to move the slide title on the note page (along with section title(s), if any, up to two so possibly ‘section’ and ‘subsection’) up so that the title area takes less vertical space (maybe still slightly taller than the title area of the corresponding slide).

Currently this is what I have:

documentclass[11pt]{beamer}

usepackage{pgfpages}

makeatletter 
defbeamer@framenotesbegin{
    usebeamercolor[fg]{normal text}
    gdefbeamer@noteitems{}% 
    gdefbeamer@notes{}% 
}
makeatother

setbeamersize{text margin left=7mm,text margin right=7mm}
usetheme[sectionpage=progressbar,subsectionpage=progressbar,progressbar=frametitle]{metropolis}

setbeamertemplate{note page}[infolines]
setbeameroption{show notes on second screen=right}
setbeamercolor{note title}{bg=yellow}
setbeamercolor{note page}{fg=blue}
setbeamercolor{note page}{bg=green}
setbeamerfont{note page}{size=scriptsize}
addtobeamertemplate{note page}{setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate subbody}{size=scriptsize}}{}
addtobeamertemplate{note page}{setbeamerfont{itemize/enumerate subsubbody}{size=tiny}}{}

renewcommand*footnoterule{}
setbeamerfont{footnote}{size=tiny}

title{Slides Title}
author{Autho Name}
institute{Author Affiliation}
date{}

begin{document}
maketitle

begin{frame}{Slide Titlefootnote{Some footnote}}
    Some text in the main slides
end{frame}

note{
    Some notes
}
%------------------------------------------------

end{document}

And with annotations to show what I want (and obviously the changes also apply to other pages, incl. the first title page):
