# Long title in tikzposter

I would like to have a long title in tikzposter and have tried to introduce a newline within the \title{} command using \\ and \newline but it does not start a new line. In the old tikzposter class I think that long titles were split among several lines by default. I will be glad to know about any workaround for displaying long titles on several lines in the new tikzposter class.

The problem is that tikzposter puts the title inside a \scalebox thus preventing line breaks. You can recover line breaking placing your title inside a \parbox:

\documentclass{tikzposter}

\title{\parbox{\linewidth}{\centering This is a really  really  really  really  really  really  really  really  really  long title for a poster}}
\institute{The Institute}
\author{The Author}
\titlegraphic{Logo}
\usetheme{Basic}

\begin{document}

\maketitle
\block{BlocktitleA}{Blocktext}
\begin{columns}
\column{0.3}
\block{BlocktitleB}{Blocktext}
\column{0.7}
\block{BlocktitleC}{Blocktext}
\note{Notetext}
\end{columns}

\end{document}


To have long title in \documentclass{tikzposter} I used minipage environment to get centred (\centering) title with a line break (\\), larger vertical space between the lines (\bigskip) and second line of the title on one line (\mbox).

\title{
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\centering
First part of the title quite long:
\\
\bigskip
\mbox{second part of the title much much longer than the first}
\end{minipage}
}


I used the above together with:

\maketitle[width=0.95\textwidth]


(I'm not completely sure how width of minipage relates to \maketitle width but it works well.)
