By default there is a lot of space around tikzposter notes. Setting innersep will reduce horizontal and vertical margins on multi-line notes but on single-line notes the vertical margin is unaffected.

\documentclass{tikzposter}
\title{Title}
\author{Author}
\institute{Institute}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\block{Block}{Content}

\note[connection, radius=10cm, angle=0]{1a) one line}
\note[connection, radius=10cm, angle=300, innersep=0.5cm]{1b) one line}
\note[connection, radius=10cm, angle=240]{2a) one line\\another line}
\note[connection, radius=10cm, angle=180, innersep=0.5cm]{2b) one line\\another line}

\end{document}

How can I reduce the vertical margins in 1b) ?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – dexteritas Jul 16 '17 at 8:24

The following answer only deals with the width of the notes.

All notes have a default width of width=8cm. If you want to decrease the horizontal size of the notes, you can specify the width explicitly:

\documentclass{tikzposter}
\title{Title}
\author{Author}
\institute{Institute}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\block{Block}{Content}

\note[connection, angle=0]{1a) one line}
\note[connection, angle=300, innersep=0.5cm, width=5cm]{1b) one line}
\note[connection, angle=240]{2a) one line\\another line}
\note[connection, angle=180, innersep=0.5cm]{2b) one line\\another line}

\end{document}

Find tikzposter.sty (I have mine in C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\tikzposter), find max(\TP@noteheight,80pt) and change it to max(\TP@noteheight,20pt) or some other value.

  • Hello to the site. Note that changing system files is a very bad idea! First, you may broke other things, second, any update might revert this. You should, at least, make a local copy of the file, but even that's a bad idea, because suddenly you have to files with the same name and completely different behavior. Good luck debugging it in the future. – yo' Jun 5 '18 at 15:43
  • Agreed. But I guess that it is difficult/impossible to change it in any other way since the note height is hard-coded in the tikzposter package. – Lukáš Adam Jun 7 '18 at 8:49
