I followed the procedure described in Creating Logo with Fancy Font to create the S-logo as a vector graphic: Now you can add a \skype command to the moderncv interface, specifically the casual theme: \makeatletter % defines one's skype (optional) % usage: \skype{<email adress>} \newcommand*{\skype}[1]{\def\@skype{#1}} ...

Just the symbol: \documentclass[tikz]{standalone} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture}[y=0.08em,x=0.08em,xscale=-0.25,yscale=--0.25, inner sep=0pt, outer sep=0pt] \path[fill=black,even odd rule] (487.6550,288.9690) .. controls (489.0610,278.5690) and (489.8700,267.9960) .. (489.8700,257.2330) .. controls (489.8700,128.0770) and (384.5990,23.3610) ...

You can redefine \section to add the rule: \documentclass{moderncv} \moderncvstyle{classic} \moderncvcolor{blue} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage[scale=0.92]{geometry} \usepackage{helvet} \setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{1.2cm} \newlength\TitleWd \newlength\LeftRuleWd \makeatletter ...

The rule you mention is produced by \makecvtitle using \color{color2!50}\rule{\textwidth}{.25ex} the quickest solution is to patch \makecvtitle to supress the rule: \documentclass{moderncv} \moderncvtheme{casual} \usepackage{etoolbox} \patchcmd{\makecvtitle} {\color{color2!50}\rule{\textwidth}{.25ex}} {} {} {} \name{John}{Doe} \begin{document} ...

If you add the enumitem package to your preamble, you can specify adjustments to lists globally, or locally using an optional argument to enumerate. I've used the latter below by setting leftmargin rather than our item indentation (formally known as the itemindent key in enumitem): \documentclass{moderncv} \moderncvtheme[green]{classic} ...

Another option: Download the latest version of the font from http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/assets/font-awesome-4.0.3.zip Replace the file texmf\fonts\opentype\public\fontawesome\FontAwesome.otf with the one contained in the .zip file. Use \social[skype]{SK} to print your Skype account. Try the following MWE (run with XeLaTeX or ...

One option is to have two documents; the first one, using the casual style, for the CV and the other one, with the oldstyle style for the cover letter. Then, if required, you can merge both into one PDF using, for example, the pdfpages package. Another option, if you want only one document, is to copy to your document the settings used in ...

Add the following lines in your preamble: \makeatletter \patchcmd{\makelettertitle} {\recomputeletterlengths} {\recomputeletterlengths\titlestyle{\@title}\par\vspace{2cm}} {} {} \makeatother MWE: \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \moderncvstyle{classic} \moderncvcolor{blue} \makeatletter \patchcmd{\makelettertitle} ...

You can use the command \pdfbookmark provided by hyperref (loaded by moderncv) and add the bookmarks manually. For example, just before \makelettertitle put \pdfbookmark{Cover Letter}{Cover} The same can be done before each included pdf file. MWE (I've removed \newpages before \clearpages because have no sense): ...

Just add \pdfbookmark[0]{Cover Letter}{CoverLetter} after \clearpage: \clearpage \pdfbookmark[0]{Cover Letter}{CoverLetter} \title{Cover letter} %This is not Here's what I get in the bookmarks The second argument is just a symbolic name, which should be unique. If you want to add bookmarks for the enclosures, a level under the cover letter, ...

The moderncv document class uses the default fonts, namely Donald Knuth's Computer Modern. The sans option uses the sans serif variants of this typeface. The Latin Modern project has an extended version of these fonts in OpenType format. You can download them and install them in your operating system for use by other programs as usual.

For recent versions of moderncv you need to use \usepackage{etoolbox} \patchcmd{\makecvtitle}{\color{color2!50}\@firstname}{\color{color2}\@firstname}{}{} \patchcmd{\makecvtitle}{\color{color2}\@lastname}{\color{color2!50}\@lastname}{}{} (Thank you, Gonzalo Medina!) The following applies only for version 2008/06/17 v0.7 of moderncv The names are ...

Here's one possibility: \documentclass{moderncv} \moderncvtheme{classic} \usepackage[scale=0.9]{geometry} \newlength\Tripleitemmaincolumnwidth \newlength\tripleitemmaincolumnwidth \AtBeginDocument{% \setlength\tripleitemmaincolumnwidth{% \maincolumnwidth-2\hintscolumnwidth-2\separatorcolumnwidth}% ...

Try this: \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \usepackage{expl3,xparse} \ExplSyntaxOn \keys_define:nn { mil / resume } { start .tl_set:N = \l_mil_resume_start_tl, end .tl_set:N = \l_mil_resume_end_tl, degree .tl_set:N = \l_mil_resume_degree_tl, institution .tl_set:N = \l_mil_resume_institution_tl, city ...

You can adjust the way the item label is set. The macro responsible for this is \listitemsymbol, and it needs to be done before setting the moderncv theme: \documentclass{moderncv} \renewcommand*{\listitemsymbol}{\hspace{2em}\labelitemi~} \moderncvtheme[green]{classic} \firstname{Joe} \familyname{Blow} \begin{document} \maketitle \section{Profile} ...

2

You need to change three lines in the original definition of \flushmaketitle (in my example below the changes are marked using % ORIGINAL and % NEW): \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \moderncvstyle{banking} \moderncvcolor{blue} \usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry} \makeatletter \renewcommand*{\flushmaketitle}{% \strut\usebox{\maketitlebox}% ...

The \cventry command requires five braced arguments and you have only four of them in the line \cventry{2013--2014}{Quadcopter project}{Tunis}{operating an arduino duemilanove card to build a quadcopter and control it with an android tablet (currently)} that I rewrite with each argument in a separate line, which is legal syntax and probably preferable for ...

It seems that there are some problems with the fork of moderncv you've downloaded. Anyway, with the last edit in your question, since you get an error with \github, this means that you're using the normal version of moderncv. Note that you can add your Github account with normal moderncv class, there is no need to use that fork. Simply replace ...

For the first problem, without redifining anything you can just use \endgraf at the desired paragraph break: \cventry{1}{2}{3}{4}{5}{desc .... \endgraf descr ...} \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \moderncvstyle{casual} \moderncvcolor{blue} \usepackage{lipsum} %Just for dummy text \name{John}{Doe} \title{Resum\'e title} ...

2

The width of the left column is stored in the parameter \hintscolumnwidth The width of the right column is computed using this one, so you can do \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry} \moderncvstyle{classic} \moderncvcolor{blue} \addtolength{\hintscolumnwidth}{6.7pt} \name{John}{Doe} \begin{document} ...

So, I have to mention that you example is far from minimal; I would highly recommend you look over some good tips for minimizing your code that have been provided on the Meta site. But to your question. Several items in your code were all mashed together, likely a result of bringing together several solutions from different places. The placement of the ...
