I'm making a poster using beamerposter; I would like to use pstricks to draw some figures on this poster. However, when I try to draw anything past about 2/3s of the poster width, nothing appears. Notice in the following that the vertical line is at x = 83 while the horizontal line ends at x = 90, but in the actual output, the horizontal line doesn't extend past the vertical line: enter image description here

This was created with the following MWE:



\psset{linewidth=5pt} % Not necessary; just used for visibility

            \pcline{-}(83,50)(83,-50) % Nothing gets drawn past x = 83

(While not shown in the image above, text will appear correctly past x = 83.) Is there a way to fix this?

Edit: This appears related to this issue I found: pstricks image is cut to a4 in landscape mode

However, the solution there doesn't compile for me since I'm not using a0poster.

  • Could you consider switching to TikZ?

  • I've done that for now, but I'd still like to figure out if there's a good way to do this for the future. The specific issue is that I'm drawing trees, and I'd like to use some of the fine-grained control that pst-jtree has that tikz and tikz-qtree don't.

  • For trees there is IMHO only one really good tool: forest. It is tikz-based and IMHO amazing.

  • Draw your picture with the standalone class, and insert the resulting .pdf via \includegraphics.

  • Sorry it is true that this comment is probably not the most appropriate for this situation. What I meant is mostly that giving a single line of code and saying it should help is not really a complete answer to any question. I think it would be better to add details and/or an example.
