I can't get this to work. I have this:


\title{My title is here....!} % Poster title

It's automatically aligned left! While I want it to align in the middle.

What am I doing wrong here?

This is the template I am using:


  • 2
    Can you also give the rest of the code. Something is clearly pushing it to the left apparently. – percusse Apr 23 '18 at 22:47
  • @percusse thanks for your response. This is the exact template I am using: overleaf.com/15692924fftndxdzdqbs#/59666612 – Siyah Apr 24 '18 at 6:41

The template you uses the headline to display the title. Within its definition of the headline it uses \raggedright. You can redefine the headline with \centering instead.

% !TeX TS-program = xelatex


\title{Titel des Posters, Schriftgröße variabel} % Poster title
\author{AutorInnen, Schriftgröße variabel} % Author(s)
\institute{Klinik, Medizinische Universität Wien, Schriftgröße variabel} % Institution(s)

%    \raggedright
    \usebeamercolor{title in headline}{\color{blueMUW}\Huge{\textbf{\inserttitle}}\\[1.5ex] \par}
    \usebeamercolor{author in headline}{\color{blueMUW}\LARGE{\insertauthor}\\[1ex]}
    \usebeamercolor{institute in headline}{\color{blueMUW}\normalsize{\insertinstitute}}


\begin{frame}[t] % The whole poster is enclosed in one beamer frame
\end{frame} % End of the enclosing frame

  • Thanks, Sam. Is there a quicker way to do this? It feels like I have to do a lot of refactoring while I just want to center the title.... – Siyah Apr 24 '18 at 10:56
  • @Siyah You could have a look at the xpatch package - but I honestly think just redefining the headline is easier – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Apr 24 '18 at 10:58
  • @Siyah or use another template which does not misuse the headline to display the title :) – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Apr 24 '18 at 10:59
  • It works though, so I am happy with this. Thanks, Sam! – Siyah Apr 24 '18 at 12:09
