II. DESIGN AND SETUP OF POSTER
1. Design Poster in Word, Excel, etc.
Allowable MAC fonts: Helvetica, Time, Courier, Times New Roman, Arial
2. Save text files as text file (no line breaks)
3. Make text boxs on powerpoint slide. Set up slide as 36x40". [[Note prior to the new Science Center posters were 34x56" so be sure to check size. 40" long fit on white boards in Center]. For background, do not select a dark color. It takes too much ink and too much time to print. If you want a colored background, use a very faint light color.
4. cut and paste text from word into powerpoint box Format text box Arial, size see below
TITLE [FONT: 80]
YOUR NAME [FONT: 28]
Your affiliation [FONT: 28]
TITLE SUBHEADING FONT: 32
SUBHEAD CAPS bold
TEXT FONT: 24 text (30 is better )
Figure: Small letters: 24 text
5. Once poster set up in powerpoint, save it somehow. Under the save command, Powerpoint 3 and powerpoint 4 formats did not work, but Powerpoint show files did open from the _nano server onto the Mac computer. Check to see if you can get your saved file to open on the computer where it will be printed, which is [David Murray Memorial] Science Center Room 450. You can check on any computer in the Visualization Lab .
6. Look at poster in powerpoint. Use 100% scale on toolbar to check how it looks. Use View Toolbar Drawing to add text boxes using capital A| symbol.
7. Be sure to proofread carefully for carriage returns, spacing, etc. as they often change when getting on to the computer in geo lab.
8. When saving poster, use save command. On panel that appears, choose file type: powerpoint show; NOT anything else.
9. You can save it on a server like _nano, a zip disk, CD, or floppy. Just check to be sure your storage method is compatible in Rm. 115 on the poster printer computer there.
