I don't know if I understood your question correctly; you can decrease the width of the box reserved for the title and authors and add a minipage before this box; this minipage will give you the area reserved to be used for the Institution; something along the lines of the example code below (I corrected some spurious blank spaces in the original code, but I'...

The class loads the (obsolete) package times and sets the default font family to sans serif (Helvetica). If you want to use, say, the Computer Modern fonts, you have to revert the setting: \documentclass{sciposter} \renewcommand{\familydefault}{\rmdefault} \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{cmr} \renewcommand{\sfdefault}{cmss} \renewcommand{\ttdefault}{cmtt} ...

You don't need geometry, as sciposter has support for A0 paper: \documentclass[a0]{sciposter} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} \usepackage[portuges]{babel} \usepackage[centertags]{amsmath} \usepackage{amsfonts,multicol} \usepackage{graphicx,colortbl} \usepackage{hyperref} \hypersetup{pdfpagelayout=SinglePage} \pagestyle{plain} Note ...

To get automatic line breaking with listings you need to specify breaklines=true: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{listings} \lstset{basicstyle=\small\sffamily, numbers=none, frame=tb, columns=fullflexible, showstringspaces=false, breaklines=true } \begin{document} \begin{lstlisting} Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. ...

The Sweave package loads the ae package, which changes all the fonts to the "Almost European Computer Modern" font, which apparently doesn't have boldface italics. You can see this, because your sample document produces the following warning: LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `T1/aess/bx/it' undefined (Font) using `T1/aess/bx/n' instead on input ...

This works for me: \documentclass{sciposter} \usepackage{libertine} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \begin{document} \Huge Hello \end{document} The problem might be that you loaded a font package that doesn't provide a sans-serif font, e.g. mathpazo or fourier. In that case you need to add the following to your preamble: \renewcommand{\familydefault}{\...

I managed to get your code to work by making the two following edits: I couldn't find the garamond package, but I did manage to find and use the ebgaramond package instead. As @Werner pointed out, you mean to use the command \textit and not the misspelling \texit. Here is the complete code: \documentclass[landscape,custom]{sciposter} \usepackage[all,poly]{...

The default LaTeX alignment is full justification (text fills the line all the way to the margin, both left and right). The macro \raggedright allows for the right margin to be ragged. There is also a package ragged2e that does this and more, for the seriously ragged author. In your case, \raggedright could be added just to Definition 3, to limit its ...

There are two issues: the sciposter class defines \normalsize in a wrong way, so the \@selfnt macro of cgloss4e.sty issues \@currsize, which isn't updated by sciposter: chaos ensues. The second issue is due to cgloss4e explicitly issuing \rmfamily. Here's a fixed version: \documentclass[a0,28pt]{sciposter} \usepackage{linguex} \makeatletter \def\@selfnt{...

You're using the subfigure syntax defined by the subcaption package1, and this is completely different to that defined in sciposter.cls. That definition, from lines 797-805 of sciposter.cls, is \newcommand{\subfigure}[2][]{ \refstepcounter{subfig} \begin{tabular}{c} #2 \\ ( \alph{subfig} ) #1\\ \end{tabular} } meaning that \subfigure is a command with ...

The most simple general answer (wprks for any document) is provuded by the pgfpages package (and not pdfpages, even thouth very convenient for other task.). Simply add in your preamble: \usepackage{pgfpages} \pgfpagesuselayout{resize to}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm] This package can also be used to make any kind for *nup with something like: \usepackage{...

Replace the \leftlogo and \rightlogo commands by \renewcommand\printleftlogo {\begin{center} \resizebox{\textwidth}{!}% {\includegraphics{firstlogo.png}\includegraphics{secondlogo.png}} \end{center} }

The class formats the author in the title using the following: {\authorsize {\bf\@author} \par} The above shows that the \@author - stored with a call to \author{<author>} is always set in \bf, making changes to \authorsize that include font weight completely useless. Perhaps that was the intent as the macros only refers to size, not the font. ...

I just read a similar question on another website and everything turned out perfectly fine if one adds the \usepackage{exscale} which makes everything at the right scale!

You a probably expecting something as the following. (My it's should be replaced by your logos, of course.) Remark The first solution is commented in the code and only the final picture included. \documentclass{sciposter} \usepackage{graphicx} \title{Title} \author{My name} \institute{Institute,\\ University\\} \email{email} \begin{document} %\...

I propose two things: Export your Inkscape file to PDF and use \includegraphics{images/exportedPDFfile}. That way the proportion graphic size to text size stays the same. Redefine the \scriptsize macro that is used by Inkspace: \def\scriptsize{\fontsize{8}{10}\selectfont} \documentclass{sciposter} \begin{document} \begin{figure} \centering \...
