Here is a template: https://www.overleaf.com/2947235kjbjrt#/8039373/

What do I need to do to switch to A1 successfully?

You could try changing a0 to a1 in line 22 as follows:

\documentclass[a1,portrait]{a0poster}

But that doesn't work properly, as some of text overflows etc.

Thanks

    Some helpful hints can be obtained from tex.stackexchange.com/questions/141116/… and tex.stackexchange.com/questions/243831/… – Leucippus Jul 3 '15 at 5:08
  • I have looked at them and I can't see how they help. Could you be more specific? – Turing Machine Jul 3 '15 at 5:16
  • @TuringMachine: Apparently the hints in Leucippus' comments were helpful to the O.P. of that question -- Did you try it? – user31729 Jul 3 '15 at 6:50
  • @TuringMachine: If I use the document in your link above, I get a normal document with (almost the A1 dimensions) and no overflowing etc. – user31729 Jul 3 '15 at 7:08
  • Depending on your needs, the very simplest way to use this style for an A1 poster would be to create an A0 poster and scale it by 0.7121. – alexis Jul 3 '15 at 13:12

Adding the a1 class option is the right first step. But your file contains some dimensions which are of a fixed size, rather than being relative to the page size. In particular, additionally you need to change

  • \columnsep=100pt
  • the width of the logo in \includegraphics[width=20cm]{logo.png}

Reducing to 70% of these values is a reasonable choice. You might consider changing some of the vertical skips too, typically \vspace commands.

Additionally the heading line is missing a \noindent producing an overfull box. The file below compiles without overfull boxes, but has a number of underfull boxes. I have adjusted the spacing a little in the title.

  • This is not in portrait mode anymore. – Astrid Jul 11 '18 at 11:40
  • @Astrid You can just add the "portrait" option \documentclass[a1,portrait]{a0poster} if you wish. – Andrew Swann Jul 11 '18 at 11:43
  • No sure, but then your solutions do not work anymore, and we have overflow in the left-hand column (at least on my editor). – Astrid Jul 11 '18 at 11:52
  • Apologies, that should be right-hand column. – Astrid Jul 11 '18 at 11:57
  • @Astrid The only overflow I get is from the logo - reducing its width fixes that problem. – Andrew Swann Jul 11 '18 at 12:01
