Why doesn't this psframe include the right border of the poster? It colours just a square (see the output pdf picture). I'm compilating it with XeLaTeX.

\documentclass[landscape,a0paper,final]{a0poster}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{pstricks,pst-grad}
\usepackage{amsthm}


\begin{document}
\psframe[fillstyle=gradient,framearc=0,linewidth=1mm,gradmidpoint=
0,gradbegin=green,gradend=yellow](0,0)(1.\textwidth,-1.\textheight)

\end{document}

output

And its doing the same thing when I use psshadowbox around a minipage. But if it suppose to be out of that functional square, than it moves into new line.

  • You're only letting it span \textwidth to \textheight, and there's an equal margin around the page border that will remain white. You can use something similar to Shading over a single page to shade with tikz using page nodes. – Werner Apr 30 '14 at 23:16
  • I don't get this output using xelatex. Perhaps you have outdated packages. See Which package version am I using? and report back to us... – Werner Apr 30 '14 at 23:56
  • These black borders aren't a part of output, it's just from screenshot to see where the poster ends. I'm quite sure that I have the newest versions of packeges because I installed texlive-full, updated and upgraded whole computer yesterday. – Matej May 1 '14 at 10:17

Perhaps with tikz things are more human:

\documentclass[landscape,final]{a0poster}
\usepackage{tikzpagenodes}
\usetikzlibrary{shadings}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
  \shadedraw[thick,inner color=green, outer color=yellow]([shift={(2.5,2.5)}]current page text 
     area.south west) rectangle ([shift={(2.5,2.5)}]current page text area.north east);
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}

enter image description here

  • So there's really nothing to put to psframe? Why is it than in the a0poster documentation: tug.org/pracjourn/2008-3/morales/morales.pdf (page 7)? – Matej Apr 30 '14 at 23:38
  • @Matej I really don't know much about pstricks :( – user11232 Apr 30 '14 at 23:43
