    It looks pretty squoze as a standalone too. Take the good version and stick it in a \resizebox{\columnwidth}{!}{...} – John Kormylo Jun 10 '16 at 19:54
  • Standalone is using 11pt font, if I remember correctly. You are using 25pt. (And not even asking for the large mind map, which will still need to be upped in size, as suggested by others.) – cfr Jun 10 '16 at 23:43
  • Ancient history now, but I'd simply generate the mindmap separately in the standalone class, and use \includegraphics on that PDF in the poster. – Torbjørn T. Aug 3 '17 at 18:10
