I have a poster in tikzposter. Now I would like to place a box at the bottom of the page. It should be as wide as the complete poster. It should "touch" both the sides of the poster and the bottom of the poster. The box should not replace the title - I need that too.

How can this be done?

Thank you for your time.


The whole tikzposter is essentially one tikzpicture. Further, the class defines a coordinate bottomleft at the lower left corner of the paper, so you could probably just add something like

\node [above right,outer sep=0pt,minimum width=\paperwidth,align=center,draw,fill=blue!30] at (bottomleft) {Some text at the bottom};

just before \end{document}.

Complete example:

\node [above right,
       outer sep=0pt,
       minimum width=\paperwidth-2*\pgflinewidth,
       minimum height=7cm,
       ultra thick] at ([shift={(0.5*\pgflinewidth,0.5*\pgflinewidth)}]bottomleft) {Some text at the bottom};

enter image description here

  • Thank you for the quick answer! This is exactly what I was looking for. However, I would like to remove the line around the box. How can this be done? – Spezi May 12 '16 at 14:26
  • @AaronWild remove draw and ultra thick from the node options. You can also remove -2*\pgflinewidth from the minimum width, and [shift=...] from the coordinate. – Torbjørn T. May 12 '16 at 14:31
