I have TeXLive 2011 installed.

My document looks like this:





\address{street}{postcode city}
\extrainfo{additional info}·
% '64pt' is the height the picture must be resized to, 0.4pt is the thickness of
% the frame around it (put it to 0pt for no frame) and 'picture' is the name of
% the picture file.


%  Extension=.otf,
%  UprightFont=*-Regular,
%  BoldFont=*-Bold,
%  ItalicFont=*-It,
%  BoldItalicFont=*-BoldIt,
%  Extension=.otf,
%  UprightFont=*-Regular,
%  BoldFont=*-Bold,
%  ItalicFont=*-It,
%  BoldItalicFont=*-BoldIt,

\setmainfont{Minion Pro}
\setsansfont{Myriad Pro}


\tlcventry[orange]{2001}{0}{Administration}{COMPANY}{City}{}{Short Description%
\item Item One 
  \item Item Two 

\section{Foreign Languages}
\cvitemwithcomment{English}{Fluent}{Some description here}


If I compile this, I'm getting a warning like this:

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/MyriadPro(0)/m/sl' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/MyriadPro(0)/m/n' instead on input line 58.

And in \tlcventry "COMPANY" is not italicized (I mean it should be treated like text with \textit or \emph - by default \tlcventry makes field #4 italicized).

A little preview of how it looks:

Bug in fontspec not defining an sl shape (regression though, this used to word), fixed in the repository a while ago, but not uploaded to CTAN yet. – Khaled Hosny Apr 27 '12 at 3:39

The Myriad Pro font doesn't have a slanted form and fontspec seems not to be able to substitute italic automatically, so you can help it by saying

\setsansfont[SlantedFont=* Italic]{Myriad Pro}

Thanks a bunch for that, egreg. Didn't know about this. Now output seems to be as elegant as it can only be. – Teddy Apr 1 '12 at 23:02
@Teddy I've discovered it because of your question. :) Please read the FAQ about what to do when an answer solves your problem. – egreg Apr 1 '12 at 23:03
