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. ...

The problem is that tikzposter puts the title inside a \scalebox thus preventing line breaks. You can recover line breaking placing your title inside a \parbox: \documentclass{tikzposter} \title{\parbox{\linewidth}{\centering This is a really really really really really really really really really long title for a poster}} \institute{The Institute}...

The tikzposter class loads geometry, so you can use its syntax to specify different paper sizes: \documentclass{tikzposter} \geometry{paperwidth=4in,paperheight=3in} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \lipsum[1] \end{document} 10.2cm is 4in and 7.6cm is 3in


16

After issuing \geometry{paperwidth=42in, paperheight=60in} you have to recalculate \TP@visibletextwidth and \TP@visibletextheight. So, after that line, add \makeatletter \setlength{\TP@visibletextwidth}{\textwidth-2\TP@innermargin} \setlength{\TP@visibletextheight}{\textheight-2\TP@innermargin} \makeatother MWE: \RequirePackage[demo]{graphicx} % remove ...

When working in restricted width places you need to use \linewidth (or \columnwidth in other context) to get a relevant length for scaling. Also wrapfig argument which you have provided with 5 is the number of lines to be used in the wrapped paragraph. Hence the rest leaks into the paragraph below. Using something like 11 does the job. \documentclass[25pt, ...

I ended up solving it myself. Below is the code I used; if you put it in myposter.sty then use \usepackage[colalign]{myposter} to enable the alignment. It works by saving the natural heights of all columns into the aux file, along with how many blocks there are. Then next compilation, for each column, it looks at the difference between the stored height and ...

Here's one way to do it. I redefined \maketitle to name the title node and then used this named node to place two additional nodes with the logos. All you have to do is to use your images and options in \insertlogoi, \insertlogoii: \insertlogoi[<options>]{<logo1 file>} \insertlogoii[<options>]{<logo2 file>} and you can control the ...

You can use the authblk package: \documentclass{tikzposter} \usepackage{authblk} \title{The Title} \titlegraphic{Logo} \usetheme{Basic} \author[1]{Author A} \author[2]{Author B} \author[2]{Author C} \affil[1]{Department One, University One} \affil[2]{Department Two, University Two} \begin{document} \maketitle \block{BlocktitleA}{Blocktext} \begin{...

After some gray hairs with TikZ, all boils down to this simple example \documentclass{article} \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} \addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib} \begin{document} \cite{ctan,companion} \cite{aristotle:physics} \begin{center} \printbibliography[heading=none] \end{center} \end{document} A list within a list.

It's a known bug of the Latin Modern fonts, which only supply the lmex font (extensible symbols) at a fixed size. Note that this affects all “large symbols”, such as \sum, \int, \prod and so on, including extensible braces. \documentclass[25pt, a0paper, portrait]{tikzposter} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \...

The author provided some handy and short command for this. Maybe you should consider in leaving the logo as it is nice advertisement for that project. But here you are: % arara: pdflatex \documentclass{tikzposter} \tikzposterlatexaffectionproofoff \begin{document} Hello World! \end{document} The command can be found on page 4 of the current ...

We can use KOMA-script to help us. As explained in How can i change the fontsize with KOMA-script? we produce a new file. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{scrfontsizes} \generatefontfile{theguy}{36pt} \begin{document} \end{document} Running the above example will give us a file theguy36pt.clo. That file can be input into our document, but since it ...

Is this what you seek? According to the manual on page 4-5, you could utilize the parameter determining the vertical distance between the titlegraphic and the title description \TP@titlegraphictotitledistance in the \setitle command. by changing the default value via (within makeatletter ... makeatother) \def\TP@titlegraphictotitledistance{-9cm} % -9 can ...

Looks like a hyperref or tikz bug (not fully tracked it down) but you can do this: \documentclass{tikzposter} \usepackage{doi} \def\HyperFirstAtBeginDocument#1{#1} \begin{document} \end{document} The additional line should be the last thing in the preamble, just before \begin{document}

This was a rather tricky one ... I would contend it's a bug in tikzposter. The problem is that tikzposter uses \AtBeginDocument for starting a tikzpicture environment, which is then closed \AtEndDocument. This means that any other code that a package (in this case microtype) inserts AtBeginDocument is executed inside a group, hence any local assignments ...

You can try adding something like \node[above right,opacity=0.3,inner sep=0pt,outer sep=0pt] at (bottomleft) {\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth,height=\paperheight]{example-image-16x10}}; immediately after \begin{document}. This relies on the fact that the whole poster is essentially one big tikzpicture, and that the class defines a coordinate bottomleft ...

This works: \documentclass{tikzposter} \title{The Title} \author{The Author} \begin{document} \maketitle \block{A Title}{% \begin{center} \begin{minipage}{0.45\linewidth} \centering \begin{tikzfigure}[Caption of figure1] \includegraphics[height = 10cm]{example-image-a} \end{tikzfigure}% \end{minipage}\hfill \begin{minipage}{0.45\linewidth} \...

The problem is that you are, perhaps unknowingly, nesting tikzpictures, which one should not do. You can avoid it by using boxes. \documentclass{tikzposter} \newsavebox\whatever \savebox\whatever{\begin{tikzpicture} \fill (0,0) rectangle (1,1); \node at (0,0) () {Test}; \end{tikzpicture} } \settitle{ Test \usebox\whatever Test } ...

No... code format-... formatting... what..so...ever... I'm gonna... die... More seriously, the problem is that the contents of the lstlisting environment is treated verbatim, which means you cannot have such an environment inside the argument of a command (\block, here). A common workaround is to write the listing in an external file (with or without the ...

basically you don't like line 426 which says {\large\color{blockbodyfgcolor}#3} If it said {\large\rightskip\z@skip\spaceskip\z@\xspaceskip\z@ \color{blockbodyfgcolor}#3\par} then you would get justified text (and fix the \par issue of your other question. It's a bit inconvenient to patch that you could ...

You can change the color inside a local scope \documentclass{tikzposter} % See Section 3 \title{Title} \institute{Inst} % See Section 4.1 \author{Auth} \titlegraphic{Logo} \usetheme{Basic} % See Section 5 \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \maketitle % See Section 4.1 \block{BlocktitleA}{\lipsum[1]} % See Section 4.2 \begin{columns} % See Section 4.4 \...

The whole tikzposter is essentially one tikzpicture. Further, the class defines a coordinate bottomleft at the lower left corner of the paper, so you could probably just add something like \node [above right,outer sep=0pt,minimum width=\paperwidth,align=center,draw,fill=blue!30] at (bottomleft) {Some text at the bottom}; just before \end{document}. ...

For the title, see the description of \settitle in the manual. You can copy the example given there and remove \sc. For the colours, I copied the definition of \definebackgroundstyle{Rays} from the file tikzposterBackgroundStyles.tex and swapped the top color and bottom color \documentclass{tikzposter} \definebackgroundstyle{Rays}{ \draw[line width=...

The box dimensions are settable by way of \def\Vgap{3pt} \def\Hgap{3pt} \def\VsizeA{4in} \def\HsizeA{1.4in} \def\VsizeB{0.5in} as well as \fboxsep and \fboxrule. Note that the 3 \?size dimensions are the minipage dimensions, before \fboxsep and \fboxrule get applied. The MWE. \documentclass{a0poster} \usepackage{stackengine} \renewcommand\stackalignment{...

Following code uses TikZ nodes and positioning library to place these five boxes as desired. But in this case the node contents is formed by tcolorboxes with defined dimensions. First, boxes width and height are defined (inspired by Steven B. Segletes answer): \setlength{\Vgap}{8pt} \setlength{\Hgap}{8pt} \setlength{\HsizeA}{\dimexpr(\textwidth-2\Hgap)/3} \...

You can adjust titletotopverticalspace like so \documentclass[25pt, a0paper, portrait, margin=0mm, innermargin=15mm, blockverticalspace=15mm, colspace=15mm, subcolspace=8mm]{tikzposter} \title{\parbox{\linewidth}{\centering The big poster fail}} \author{Amir Sagiv} \usetheme{Basic} % See Section 5 \begin{document} \maketitle[titletotopverticalspace=-5mm] ...

The package rsfso provides scalable Type 1 version of RSFS fonts. This seems to give a good result: \documentclass{tikzposter} \usepackage[scr]{rsfso} \begin{document} \begin{columns} \column{0.4} \block{Test}{ $\mathcal{A}$ $\mathscr{A}$ $A$ } \end{columns} \end{document} @MarianG in a comment below shows how to use \...
