# Moving the position of a text block in tikzposter

this is my first time using tikzposter and I am trying to move the position of one of my text blocks upward to free up some more space on my poster but I am unsure how. I have had a look at the tikzposter documentation but I can't see anything in there about changing the x,y position of the text block on the poster. I'll add an image below of what it looks like.

What I am trying to do is get rid of that big vertical spacing between the tech used block and the future work block but I can't work out how to do it. Does anyone have a method of doing this?

\begin{columns}
\column{0.6}
\block{Technology Used}{\blindtext[1]}
\column{0.4}
\block{Work Done}{\blindtext[1]}
\column{0.5}
\end{columns}

\begin{columns}

\column{0.5}
\block{Future Work}{}
\end{columns}


The above Latex code is how I am getting them to load onto the PDF

Thank you in advance for any help anyone gives me.

• Move Future Work block after Technology Used block. If you declare it inside a new columns environment, it will be placed below the previous columns environment like it happens now. Feb 15, 2021 at 10:33
• I have moved the future work into the same environment as the tech used and work done but the future work block does not show up at all then? Feb 15, 2021 at 10:51

Every columns environment is placed below the previous one. As Future work block is inside a second columns environment, it's placed below the first one. If Future work is move to the first columnsenvironment just after Technology used block, the vertical space will disapear.

Following code shows three columns environments, first and second are the originals and the third is the "correct" one.

\documentclass[25pt, a0paper, portrait, margin=0mm, innermargin=15mm,
blockverticalspace=15mm, colspace=15mm, subcolspace=8mm]{tikzposter} %Default values for poster format options.
