comment Texmaker on Mac doesn't like my \section{}s
@hpesoj626 which is pretty much what I did... But whatever - it's solved now, at least to the extent that I can edit and compile, can't wait to get back to my previous set-up (PC, distribution, shortcuts etc.)

@MatthewLeingang What do mean by 'trim down'? To find the error-causing lines (see answer) I kept commenting-out more and more non-vital parts to my preamble until it loaded, then I added back as much I as could until I found the precise lines that caused the fatal errors. As a side-note, I don't understand why my problem is 'too localized' - many people will swap between different distributions - especially if multiple people are working on the same document.

@hpesoj626 There are no 'errors' in my code. It's a cross-platform problem/ machine issue. Given this, a MWE is not appropriate IMO. I have answered my question below for those who may have the same problem in future.

@DavidCarlisle in the \section{} lines? Or elsewhere? I am trying to compile a (40 page) document that I made in Texmaker on a Windows machine, and there were no errors last time... :s

comment Why is my border misaligned?
@DavidCarlisle In order to not have my border clipped, I have to go into Inkscape and make the image smaller on the page (even though trying to export the image, not the page).

comment Why is my border misaligned?
The background image of my poster doesn't cover the entire LaTeX page (i.e. there is some white space beyond the black border of my image). I chose (10,-50) by eye-balling the white space on all four sides of my poster and trying to make them about the same (so that my poster would sit 'in the middle' of the page).

The x11names offers many choices indeed! If I write \usepackage{xcolor} in my preamble, I can use the basic colours. However, if instead I use \usepackage[dvipsnames]{xcolor}, I get the error "Option clash for package xcolor"
