* How to create boxes which are filled until the bottom of the poster?
I don't know, because this here doesn't work:

> \setlength{\rest}{\textheight}
> \addtolength{\rest}{-\pagetotal}
> \vskip\rest
```
\setlength{\rest}{\textheight}
\addtolength{\rest}{-\pagetotal}
\vskip\rest
````

Please write me an email if you know how.

* Can I use beamerposter to generate LaTeX beamer 16:9 slides in an aspect ratio for a 16:9 projector or a widescreen TV?
In principle yes (there might be better ways to solve this problem), just check that your width and height ratio is close to 1.78 (16:9) and try different and small font scale values, e.g.
\usepackage[orientation=landscape,size=custom,width=16,height=9,scale=0.5,debug]{beamerposter}

```
\usepackage[orientation=landscape,size=custom,width=16,height=9,scale=0.5,debug]{beamerposter}
```

* my printer doesn't support borderless printing, how can I change the margin values?
Simply use the pdfnup tool with negative trim values, e.g.

> pdfnup --nup 1x1 --trim "-44mm -44mm -44mm -44mm" myposter.pdf

```
pdfnup --nup 1x1 --trim "-44mm -44mm -44mm -44mm" myposter.pdf
```

Another option might be to use the pgfpages package (works for DIN sized posters, by Florian Hengstberger :-)

> \usepackage[orientation=landscape,size=a0,scale=1.5]{beamerposter}
> \usepackage{pgfpages}
> \pgfpagesuselayout{resize to}[a0paper,landscape,border shrink=10mm]

```
\usepackage[orientation=landscape,size=a0,scale=1.5]{beamerposter}
\usepackage{pgfpages}
\pgfpagesuselayout{resize to}[a0paper,landscape,border shrink=10mm]
```
