I'd like to center vertically all text in all my slide, in Powerdot.

I think \pddefinetemplate could be used with options, but I can't find how.

Here is my code.

\documentclass[style=aggie]{powerdot}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}    
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{mathptmx}
\usepackage[francais]{babel} 
\begin{document}
\begin{wideslide}{Illustration}
I'd like to center vertically my text, in each slide. Thanks a lot
\end{wideslide}
\end{document}

Could someone help me ? Best regards,

It needs too many changes in the code ifr you want all slide types be vertically centered. It is easier if you coud use a command like \Fill:

\documentclass[style=aggie]{powerdot}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}    
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{mathptmx}
\usepackage[francais]{babel} 
\newcommand\Fill{\vspace*{\fill}\null}

\begin{document}
\begin{wideslide}{Illustration}\Fill
I'd like to center vertically my text, in each slide. Thanks a lot

\Fill
\end{wideslide}


\begin{slide}{Illustration}\Fill

  • Hello Thanks a lot. It's very friendly. But the text is not centered. For example, f i write one, two, ... paragraph, all the text start always at 0.5\slideheight (not centered, so). Could you find another way ? Best regards,

  • @loruyza: I see. I suppose that the complete frame definition has to be redefined. Will see, what I can do

  • Hello It's ok for me. It seems that Powerdot could not adjust directly. Thanks again. I know Beamer, it was my first try with Powerdot. Best regards
