Could anyone please help me to convert this poster to ''A1-Potrait''? All I want is an A1-size poster with the same style as the poster.

Edit [cfr]: the following is a more minimal, working version of the code above which does not leave environments unfinished, include fatal syntax errors or rely on non-standard files. It may or may not reflect the OP's intent. If not, the OP can hopefully edit it so it does while keeping it minimal.

    Hyperlinks can and do decay over time, rendering your posting in its current form incomprehensible to future readers. Hence please post the actual code here, rather than just providing a hyperlink to some other site. Also, what kind of help are you hoping to get? E.g., do you want to shrink the contents linearly to make them fit on an A1 page? Or do you want to distribute the material across twice as many pages? Please be specific.

    Thanks for adding some code, however it does not compile, there is no document body. Please also explain if you want to scale down your poster or if you want to keep the same font size. -> voting to leave closed until you clarify your question Commented Dec 26, 2023 at 0:20

    You can't keep everything. You can either keep the layout or you can keep the font size. Are you maybe looking for \usepackage[orientation=portrait,size=a1,scale=1]{beamerposter}? (Your code still does not compile) Commented Dec 26, 2023 at 0:50

    But you probably shouldn't scale fonts down by root 2 because you shouldn't try to fit on A1 as much as you'd fit on A0. So just scaling everything down proportionately will result in a poor quality poster. So definitely the scale option @WillieWong mentioned. (In case it wasn't obviously \fontsize{18pt}{27pt}\selectfont was not a recommendation and is almost certainly not what you want. For one thing, you don't typically want \baselineskip to scale simply proportionately to font size.)

I'd simply compile the file as is, in A0 format and create a small LaTeX file, say reduceposter.pdf

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[paperwidth=594mm,paperheight=841mm]{geometry}
\usepackage{pdfpages}

\begin{document}

\includepdf{bigposter}% use the proper file name

\end{document}

giving as argument to \includepdf the name of your PDF file containing the poster.

Please note that anyfontsize is obsolete and not needed anyway, because lmodern provides fully scalable fonts.

  • Thanks--it worked perfectly--just out of curiosity--how could I do it the other way? Meaning from A1 to A0. Many Thanks.

    @Myshkin Just use the dimensions of A0 paper. Google for them.
