How to add text to the poster template
If you are using one of our research poster templates for your presentation you will notice the text placeholders that are already on the poster. There are two kinds of placeholders on the template. Section header placeholders and body text placeholders. They are titled with the most common titles in poster presentations:
When you click inside a placeholder its text disappears and is replaced with what you type. You can move, delete or add as many placeholders as you need for your presentation. The video below will demonstrate how to add text manually or by cutting and pasting from another document.
Understanding text sizes in PowerPoint:
PowerPoint has a size limit of 56 inches (142.24 cm). In order to create a poster larger than 56 inches, the working document has to be created at half the size of the final poster. For example, a 48x72 poster will be printed from a 24x36 PowerPoint document. Than means that all the text on the original document is also at half the size of final.
If your document is 56 inches or under, the file will be printed at 100% the original which means that your fonts will print the same size as they are on the original document.
