If you are looking to impart some wisdom upon someone taking a lesson in Minecraft or desire to leave a long list of tasks that you would like someone to complete then a sign is not what you are looking for. A sign can only hold so much information for its size if it were to have a rather large list of directions, then what you are looking for is something with more substantial quality and size. The poster is what you are going to desire in this case.
How to Acquire
When it comes to how you can gain the poster you need to know that the Java and Bedrock versions of Minecraft will not have access to such an item. It is exclusive only in the Education Edition of Minecraft, mostly because such an item is used primarily for educational purposes that teachers can use for their students when conducting lessons.
If you do have the education edition there are two paths through which you can gain your board. The first path is rifling through the items list until you eventually get to your desired item for use. The other avenue to use is by using a console command. If you do indeed wish to use a console command, the correct command to accomplish this is as follows:
Command: /give @p board 1 2
How To Use
Before you use your poster, let's understand its dimensions and compare it to its counterparts. For example, let's look at a slate. It has the exact function of a board, but it has a 1x1 dimension, making it the smallest of its kind.
The largest of all chalkboards would be the board itself, which is 2 blocks wide and 3 blocks high.
The poster that you are seeking to use in this article will be 2 blocks wide and 1 block high, making it the second to largest chalkboard of all of its cousins.
As far as actually using your poster, it’s fairly straightforward. Once you’ve acquired your poster you place it on whatever surface you want and from there you press the use button on it to type in anything you want. It could be equations to guides, to instructions that you want someone to follow. At the end of the day, it’s up to you for what you want to be on your poster. Keep in mind, however, that you can prevent any mischief from occurring on your poster and prevent anyone from deleting the content it by locking it. This gives it a great deal more utility than just a regular sign.
A poster maybe a tad bit smaller than aboard, but that doesn’t make it any less useful for whatever you desire to use it for. Perhaps its size may be necessary to fill a certain amount of directions or a guide that you wish to impart upon someone or a group of people? Either way, the usefulness of such an item cannot be denied. It will be up to you as to how you wish to use it to its fullest potential.
