Working with Text

How do I create nested lists?

I want to nest a list inside a list.

1. Start by writing the items in the first list:

2. Select the text:

3. Click the bulleted list button, the list is created:

4. Continue by adding the items that should be nested:

5. Selected the text:

6. Press Tab on the keyboard, this will indent the selected text:

7. Continue the same way if you want further nesting:

If you want to return to the original, unindented list, press Shift+Tab:

My text is not showing properly (or not all) in preview mode.

Everything looks fine on my template, but when I look at my presentation in preview mode, the text isn’t showing at all, or the formatting is wrong.

This is probably because there was some hidden “junk code” in the document you copied and pasted from and it is preventing your text from displaying as it should. To clean up the code, there are a number of different “fixes”.

If your text is not displaying properly, try the following:

  1. If there are images in the content box, start by deleting them. They are all saved in your Image Gallery, from which you can re-insert them once you’ve fixed the text.
  2. Copy the text. Then delete it from the content box.
  3. Paste the text back into the content box.
  4. Check preview mode. If the text now displays, you can go back to your template editor, format it as you wish, and reinsert the images from your Image Gallery.

If this still doesn’t work (because you’ve got some really, really mean code blocking things) please do this:

  1. Delete any images as above.
  2. All computers come with a plain text editor, e.g., NotePad on Windows & TextEdit on Mac. Copy-paste all text into either of these programs.
  3. Delete all text from your content box.
  4. Then copy-paste back into your content boxes.
  5. Check preview. If the text displays, proceed as above.

If not, please contact support.

How do I add special characters: superscript, math symbols, etc.?


For Content Box texts

  1. Place the cursor where you want to insert the special character in the text.
  2. Click on the appropriate button in the Tool Bar (pictured below).



For Title and Subtitle fields

To add special characters into the title and subtitle fields you can use copy-and-paste. Here are super and subscript numbers and commas that you can use:

Superscript:

¹ ² ³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶ ⁷ ⁸ ⁹ ⁰ ⸴

Subscript:

₁ ₂ ₃ ₄ ₅ ₆ ₇ ₈ ₉   ̦

Please note: if you’re a Mac user and you’re having trouble seeing any of the super or subscript characters above, do this:

You can also use any one of a number of online super- and subscript generators that can be found on the web. We recommend the following easy-to-use generators:

Can I adjust line spacing?

There is no button in the toolbox for line spacing, but you can have a tight line space by holding Shift and then Return/Enter on your keyboard. You can create double line breaks by pressing Return/Enter twice.

Can I upload a PowerPoint or PDF poster directly to my presentation?

 

There is no function to upload a PowerPoint or PDF poster directly into your presentation.
 
But there’s good news: While you can’t upload a PowerPoint or PDF directly, you can transfer the source content over from other documents. Many – if not most – of our authors have their source content in PowerPoint, PDF,  Keynote or Word documents. They simply pick a template that works for the way their presentation is organised, and then transfer the content into the content boxes. Follow this method to upload elements from a  powerpoint, PDF or other type of document. 
 

Enter your texts and images separately.

 

You can copy and paste text from your source, directly into a content box.

 

All images should be inserted using the Insert Image tool, which you will  find on the toolbar of each content box.

Upload images from a powerpoint or PDF by clicking the 'insert image' button.


IMPORTANT: Images must be in JPG, PNG or GIF format
. When inserting images, remember that images will expand to their full size when tapped by visitors or by you during your presentation. So, make sure your images are as large as possible – up to 1920 x1080 pixels. And if possible, use the original images for best quality. If they are not available, take screen shots of your images, but zoom in before you take them so that, again, they are as large as possible.


Treat diagrams, charts, tables, etc the same way
. Either export them from their source program as JPG or PNG, or take a screen shot. Make them as large as possible, and then import them into your content boxes. That way they will expand to make it easy for your visitors to view them.


Remember that an iPoster or iPresentation can contain so much more than an upload of a  PDF or Powerpoint, so try to take advantage of this by including:

 

  • Videos
  • Sound files
  • Links to dynamic external information (e.g. online data sets, visualizations, etc…)
  • As much content as you feel is necessary to present your research with the detail it deserves. There are no content limits.  As soon as you exceed the apparent physical space of a content box, it will scroll.


One last tip.

As you proceed, save your progress then check your work by clicking on the Preview button. You’ll get a close approximation of how your presentation will look on the HD screens, and can test all of the functionality: content boxes and images expand when clicked, videos play correctly, external links connect, etc…

 

Be sure to view our tutorials, which will give you a broad overview of the how to create your presentations.

Our Editing Quick guide will explain all of the editing tools.

 

How do I adjust font sizes?

The size of the text in the content boxes can be adjusted using the ‘font size’ button in the toolbar. Simply highlight the text, click on the ‘font size’ button and select your preferred size.

Please note that the font sizes for title, authors and affiliations are fixed. 

Why can’t I see the names of affiliated institutions on my presentation?

The reason you can’t see this field is because you’ve used up too much space in the fields above. The space allotted to the ‘Title’, ‘Subtitle’ and ‘Affiliated Institutions’ fields is fixed.  If these fields are too long then the institution information won’t be visible. 

 

The solution:

keep your titles and subtitles as short as possible. If you have a very long abstract title, try to abbreviate it in your presentation. Your full abstract title will be displayed on the search screen at the conference.

Likewise,  try to keep your list of co-author names and institutions brief. If you must include several authors on the presentation, use the ‘Author Info‘ button on the main toolbar. This section is an annex to your presentation screen. Visitors will see an  ‘Author Info’ button on your presentation. When they click this button they can view the additional author information. 

  

You can view the Author Info section for yourself, simply go into preview mode and select the ‘Author Info’ button at the bottom of the page. 

Can I edit the font in the title fields?

You can edit the title’s font type and font colour.  Simply click on the ‘Design’ button in the right hand menu. Then select the font type and colour from the options provided. The title’s font size is fixed and therefore cannot be edited.
