Some problems with graphics
There's a known bug in xfig which will cause some parts of graphics to go black during printing on the large plotters.
The problem and workarround are described here: http://www.graphics.ed.ac.uk/gmrc/howto/a0advice.shtml.
There is another workarround that we used, which was to convert the eps
files generated by xfig into large gif images and then convert them
back to eps (using gimp and convert).
Spacing, colour of lines
You may have to add some vertical spaces before some headings
in order to change the colour of the vertical line between the columns.
It seems that depending on a heading (default=blue) position in a particular
column, the vertical line immediately to the right was having its colour
changed from black to blue. And this was not so evident when previewing
the poster on screen.
Changing orientation from landscape to portrait
changing orientation from landscape to portrait, the School logo goes
too far to the right and overlaps with the blue border.
