Is there a simple way to use alertblock inside \block in tikzposter? I need to emphasize some statement and using alertblock will be very practical. Something like:

\block{Block Title}{

text text text
text text text

\begin{alertblock}{The Key Idea}
text text text
\end{alertblock}

}

Thanks in advance!

  • Please complete your code by adding \documentclass{...}, necessary packages and \begin{document}...\end{document}. That would make it much easier for people to help and make it more likely that their help will actually be applicable to your situation.

Although there's no alertblock environment in tikzposter, you can use \innerblock (with a title) or \coloredbox (if no title is needed); refer to the documentation to see all options available for those commands:

\documentclass{tikzposter}
\usepackage{xcolor}

\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\block{Block Title}{%
text text text text text text
\innerblock[roundedcorners=10pt]{The Key Idea}{text text text}
\coloredbox[fgcolor=red]{text text text}
}

\end{document}

enter image description here

Another option is to use the beamer skin from tcolorbox and design your own block:

\documentclass[svgnames]{tikzposter}
\usepackage[most]{tcolorbox}

\newtcolorbox{tcbalertblock}[1]{
  beamer,
  colback=Salmon!50!white,
  colframe=FireBrick!75!black,
  adjusted title=#1
}

\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\block{Block Title}{%
text text text text text text
\innerblock[roundedcorners=10pt]{The Key Idea}{text text text}
\coloredbox[fgcolor=red]{text text text}
\begin{tcbalertblock}{The title}
This box looks like an \texttt{alertedblock} provided by the \texttt{beamer} class.
\end{tcbalertblock}

}

\end{document}

  • Great! Although yellow block is fine, but I prefer the red one. It's even better. Thanks again! Aug 29 '15 at 20:28
