Separation between title lines in baposter template

I am writing a poster with the baposter template. The problem is when the title needs two sentences they are too close to each other.

How can I increase the separation between them?

Thank you very much, Ignacio

This is a complete hack but I had this problem as well and needed to solve it quickly. If someone has a more 'official' solution please share it!

Looking at the baposter.cls file I found the eyecatcher section where the title is set up. I surrounded the title with custom spacing from the setspace package (see here). This messed up the eyecatcher a bit since it has a fixed vertical size so I needed to remove some of the vertical space introduced using the vspace command. My additions are shown below, but you may want to play with the numbers passed to spacing and vspace. Note that the #3 and #4 indicate the Title and Authors text passed in from your .tex file.

% set in preamble
...
\ifbaposter@eyecatcher% Has eye catcher%
\draw (image.east) node(title)[anchor=west,text, width=\baposter@titleimage@textwidth]{%
\begin{minipage}{\baposter@titleimage@textwidth}
\begin{center}
\textbf{\Huge #3}\\
{\Large #4}%
\end{center}%
\end{minipage}
};
...


Again, a non-hacked solution would be more ideal but I can't see an easy way to do it in this case.

• For an alternative solution (but one that also involves rewriting the baposter code) see: tex.stackexchange.com/a/220217/2693. This answer correctly identifies the problem. – Alan Munn Jul 2 '17 at 17:29

Another hacky solution that needs less code is to create a manual line break and incorporate a vertical space

% Title
{\bf\textsc{Title Fake Title Fake \\ \vspace{0.2em} Title Fake Title Fake Title Fake Title Fake Title Fake }\vspace{0.25em}}


The width of 0.2em seems to work fine for my case. If it pushes the first line of the page you might have to put a negative vertical space before the first line:

% Title
{\bf\textsc{\vspace{-0.4em}Title Fake Title Fake \\ \vspace{0.4em} Title Fake Title Fake Title Fake Title Fake Title Fake }\vspace{0.25em}}
