We could use the FFF Tusj font from Dafont.com. It's 100% free font. After unzipping the file I am renaming the file name to have no spaces there (Otherwise, I would have some difficulties to load the font in LuaLaTeX via fontspec). The other used font is Comfortaa by Johan Aakerlund, available from http://www.dafont.com/comfortaa.font. It's also free font. ...

Some tricks and ideas to achieve this: The shape of the node is a "superellipse" instead of a rectangle, which looks more "comic-like" (see question How do I make a superellipse node shape in tikz?) Connections between balloons are not double lines, but very thick black lines with a very thick (but less) white line on top. It does the trick if the ...

The columns environment can take quite a few optional arguments, one of which is totalwidth which I have specified as \linewidth in the solution below. Here's the output I've borrowed Stefan's solution from Changing default width of blocks in beamer to define a varwidth block which allows you to specify the width of a block environment. It does lead to ...

As far as I know, the only possibility is to interrupt the columns environment, include the wider material end then start a new columns environment (in fact, that's what the author of the poster you linked to does): \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{columns}[t,totalwidth=\textwidth] \column{.5\linewidth} Some ...

Since beamerposter style is based on beamer, the columns' options are also inherited from beamer. Hence, simply copy/pasting for convenience from the manual, below are these alignment options for \begin{columns}[option] ... \end{columns} ∙ b will cause the bottom lines of the columns to be vertically aligned. ∙ c will cause the columns to be centered ...

I agree with you that the default Beamer bibliography format is (shall we say) not ideal and bordering on the garish. Here's what I use, which gets you a pretty standard bibliography. Please note that this solution uses the natbib package, since the apalike.bst file is designed to be used with it. \documentclass{beamer} \begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib} @...

The etoolbox lets you process lists separated by a catcode 3 |. If you convert \and into | then you can process the authors as a list. For classes that do not redefine \author the following should work. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{etoolbox} \author{Einstein \and Podolsky \and Rosen} \makeatletter \begingroup \catcode`|=3\relax \def\and{|} \...

You can always do it by hand: \documentclass[tikz,border=2mm]{standalone} \usetikzlibrary{positioning} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \node[fill=green!30,minimum width=2cm,minimum height=3cm] (a) {A}; \node[fill=blue!30,minimum width=3cm,minimum height=3cm,right=1cm of a] (b) {B}; \node[fill=orange!30,minimum width=6cm,minimum height=3cm, below=of b....

I am not very expert but recently I am also working with beamer to create a poster. The scale option is for your font size. Like I use \documentclass[final, 12pt]{beamer} \usepackage[size=custom,width=77,height=107,scale=1.4,orientation=portrait]{beamerposter} I choose scale size 1.4, then I choose \Large size for my title, so it will multiply by 1.4 ...

I've contacted Christian Tellechea, the maintainer of the chemfig package. Hi Christian, there is currently a discussion about bound joints in chemfig on tex.stackexchange: Ugly bond joints in chemfig Are you aware of that problem? Is it a chemfig-problem or a TikZ problem? I would really appreciate it if you could participate in the ...

I have tried to "fix" the problem. It is not really a "bugfix" (since there is no bug) but a dirty workaround. It seems to work : The beta version needs more testing. If you can't wait (or want to test it), you can download it here. The zip file contains the package source itself (chemfig.tex), a small test file (test.tex) and the pdf manual, compiled with ...

Here's what you need to do. First of all, for licensing issues (the files are licensed under the GNU General Public License v. 3 (GPLv3)), it's better not to change the original files. Make a copy of the files beamercolorthemeFeather.sty beamerinnerthemeFeather.sty beamerouterthemeFeather.sty beamerthemeFeather.sty and rename the copies as, for example, ...

Here is a discussion on this Stack Exchange Discussion and then here is a working example Poster Template referenced in the previous discussion. It is the one I would reference to my students. Note: You do not have to have an account with latextemplates to download the *.tex file and all supporting files. I would suggest that you download all the files ...

The following answer is based on your code, but please be aware that it is possibile to follow a completely different approach to solve your problem. You may, for example, get rid of the \title, \author, etc. macros and insert the same information in a normal or custom block enviroment, so to have more control over it. Anyway, the following code tries to ...

One way is to add this after your \begin{document}: \addtobeamertemplate{headline}{} { \begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay] \node [shift={(-10 cm,-5cm)}] at (current page.north east) {\includegraphics[height=5cm]{logo}}; \end{tikzpicture} } I had to compile twice.

In case anyone had the same problem as I did and comes looking at this question, the answer is in the link posted by David Carlisle as a comment. The issue was with the minor version of PDF that was being used by LaTeX. So the issue is fixed by adding \pdfminorversion=4 at the top of my beamer .tex file (before the \documentclass{} line). I haven't ...

The problem here is that \footfullcite uses \footnote and, when used inside minipages/columns, \footnote causes the footnote/cite to appear immediatly after the minipage/column and not at the bottom of the page/frame; you can solve this using \footnotemark at the place of the citation in the document, and then \footnotecite outside the minipage/column, sice \...

In addition to Karl's students answers (Can we use media9 to show a video on a PDF but the video is not embedded to the PDF?) and this other question: gif image in beamer presentation I can suggest what I did for my thesis presentation: In the preamble of the beamer: %Graphics and Videos \usepackage{graphicx} %The mode "LaTeX => PDF" allows the ...

Below is the code about how I solved it using multimedia package. Someone can add an image also to avoid a black spot in the allocated space for the video. \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{multimedia} \begin{document} \begin{frame}{movie} \begin{figure}[h!] \centering \movie[label=show3,width=1.0\textwidth,poster ,...

You need to set the bibliography item template, which can be found in beamerinnerthemedefault.sty. The only modification I made to the default template is addingscalebox, of course you might use your favourite scaling method. \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage[orientation=portrait,size=a0,scale=1.4,debug]{beamerposter} \usetheme{Berlin} \...

The template uses the documentclass beamer. Font sizes are predefined and there are eight default sizes: 8pt, 9pt, 10pt, 11pt, 12pt, 14pt, 17pt and 20pt. If you want to achieve 24pt, then use 20pt as an option for the documentclass: \documentclass[final,20pt]{beamer} Set option scale from the beamerposter-package to scale from 20pt to 24pt (1.2*20 = 24): ...

You can simply change the relevant list length. (It is perhaps also necessary to change in a similar way \leftmarginii and \leftmarginiii): \documentclass{beamer} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{itemize} \item test \item test \end{itemize} \setlength\labelsep {\dimexpr\labelsep + 0.5em\relax} \setlength\leftmargini{\dimexpr\leftmargini + 0....

Your example code has some errors and won't work. However, I could reprouce your problem with a simple modification to your sample code (I changed some settings to make my example simpler, but this is not relevant to the problem nor to the solution): \documentclass[final, 12pt]{beamer} \usepackage[size=custom,width=10,height=10,scale=.7,orientation=portrait]...

It's a sneaky one: the t option doesn't push everything right to the top, it sets \beamer@frametopskip to 0.2cm plus 0.5\paperheight. (0.2cm are pretty exactly the 5.69pt you observe). Adding \makeatletter \define@key{beamerframe}{t}[true]{% top \beamer@frametopskip=0pt %<-- was: .2cm plus .5\paperheight\relax% \beamer@framebottomskip=0pt plus ...

One problem of your MWE is that the both the start and end of the R chunk (<<>>= and @) are not at the beginning of the line. Another problem is that you have to add the option [fragile] to the frame environment. If you correct your both problems your example will work, also with figures if you provide the fig=T option, as in this example: \...

To get it in A1 format, replace the line \usepackage[scale=1.24]{beamerposter} with \usepackage[scale=0.78,size=a1]{beamerposter} \setlength{\paperwidth}{33.1in} \setlength{\paperheight}{23.4in}

You can use the tikz package to accomplish this easily. Working with the template you mentioned, you have to include: \usepackage{tikz} in the preamble. Then, in the body of your document (right after \begin{document}) add the following: \addtobeamertemplate{headline}{} {\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture, overlay] \node [anchor=north east, inner ...

beamerposter contains a line \renewcommand*{\normalfont}{\normalsize} which is the cause of the problem. Setting \renewcommand*{\normalfont}{\relax} locally solves the problem. MWE: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{tcolorbox} \usepackage{beamerposter} \setlength{\paperwidth}{11in} \setlength{\paperheight}{8.5in} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \...
