I'm trying to change the width and the height of the figure appearing in the top left corner of a powerdot presentation with the default style. This is not achieved with the logocmd and logopos parameters of the \pdsetup{} command, is it ? enter image description here

that is defined in the style files. You can change it with overwriting the definition. Here is the original one where you can change the height and/or width.

{\sbox\pd@imagebox{\includegraphics[trim=50 20 0 20,clip,%
{\sbox\pd@imagebox{\includegraphics[trim=170 0 80 0,clip,%



if you do not need a handout which is in portrait mode then you can simply use/redefine

\sbox\pd@imagebox{\includegraphics[trim=50 20 0 20,clip,%

Thanks. Please, why do the file powerdot-default.ps appear two times in your first piece of code ? – Stéphane Laurent Sep 20 '12 at 10:24
the first definition is for the slides which are in landscape mode and the second for a handout which is in portrait mode. – Herbert Sep 20 '12 at 10:27
Thank you very much ! – Stéphane Laurent Sep 20 '12 at 10:47
