The template has boxes for the title, name of the author, images and descriptive text. You have the possibility of adding or removing diagrams at the bottom right, and partner logos at the bottom left corner.
If you feel that it is difficult to read the text at the bottom of the screen, you can zoom in on the screen while you are working on your poster.
To change the look of your text, you can use the button höja och sänka nivån [increase and reduce] (under the Start tab). The predefined text options are normal, bold and bullet points. You can also change this manually, and choose the font size you think is best. However, please remember that the font must be Arial or Georgia, i.e., the profile fonts of KTH.
To insert images into the template, in the predetermined image boxes, click on the box and insert your selected image. Note that the image will be adapted to the fixed size of the image box. If you have any trouble with the image, right click on it and select “Formatera bild” [Format image], then choose the option “Återställ bild” [Restore Image] under “Bild” [Image].
