I'm writing because I'm not very experienced in TikZ and I'm not able to make it work in conjunction with the package tikzposter.

I'm trying to get manual positioning of images in the title region and I thought of implementing that using a tikzfigure with remember picture and overlay options.

However this results in the whole page being moved: the center of the document ends up in the top left corner of the page (I had to use Inkscape to see this, as pdf readers will only show what's drawn inside page margins).

This is a MWE of the code I'm using to reproduce this issue:

% !TeX program = pdflatex


    \tikz[remember picture, overlay]{}

The error persists if I provide all the fields and insert a \maketitle before or after the tikz picture.

I'm using the latest version of the tikzposter package, downloaded from the bitbucket repository, and the version of tikz provided by texlive in Debian Sid repositories (2015/08/07 v3.0.1a (rcs-revision 1.151))


P.S: Problem is found compiling with both pdflatex and lualatex.

P.S2: Pictures

  • Are you sure that this minimal example gives an error? – Alan Munn Jul 30 '17 at 19:46
  • Indeed, if needed I could provide screenshots (both from Evince and Inkscape). – Sabian Jul 30 '17 at 19:46

    You can add \listfiles to your document and check the log for tikz.sty (current version of TikZ is 2015/08/07 v3.0.1a (rcs-revision 1.151). This document produces no error for me. (TL 2017) using tikzposter 2014/01/15 v2.0. – Alan Munn Jul 30 '17 at 19:48
  • I'm using tikzposter v2.1 (from bitbucket), because this version solved an error in \printbibliography. Seems that I'm now stuck between two broken versions one day before handout :-) – Sabian Jul 30 '17 at 19:51

    I have misunderstood the problem, sorry. I get the same issue you are reporting. Perhaps instead you can show an example of what you want to achieve with overlays and it can be done a different way? – Alan Munn Jul 30 '17 at 19:53

The page of a tikzposter is already a tikz picture. So if you want to put things in it use tikz commands directly:

\node at(TP@title.south) {\includegraphics{example-image-A}};
\draw[red,line width=1cm](0,0)--++(-10,-10);
