Beamer presentation PDF resolution [RESOLVED]

Thank you also very much for this RTFM!!!

After 10 years of being irritated that the Beamer presentations of mine
leave a black frame in full screen, I now finally found that
aspectratio=1610 removes it.

Tested it with Skim, Acrobat and Preview (and on Zoom) and looks great. 
Need to look at it with a beamer, but nowadays we do our CPD with Zoom 
so I don't have (need) ready access to a beamer anymore. 

On my iPad Mini 5 with sidecar the standard (43?) looks best so I will 
need to try different ratios on the beamer when we go back to F2F. 
Fortunately with Makefile or a for loop it's rather easy to produce a 
PDF in each supported aspect ration and then try every one on the 
beamer and use the one that looks best.

This is great stuff!

greetings, el
