Do not update MiKTeX right now, as there seems to be a mess with the tools package. I suppose the problem will be settled very soon. In the meantime, if you need moderncv, you can proceed as follows: download from CTAN or one of its mirrors, in /pub/tex/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages the file moderncv.tar.lzma + these 3 files: pr.ini, ...

Since you are using XeLaTeX you should use the fontspec package instead of the fontenc package. In other words the following code should produce the desired result. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \begin{document} \thispagestyle{empty} \pagestyle{empty} ää--llll \end{document}

Because you need a 6th argument in the first(!) call of \cventry the second one is correct \cventry{entry1}{entry2} {entry3} {\textit{entry4}}{entry5}{entry6!} I also needed to remove \endcsname to get your code to compile.

Well, class moderncv changed a lot and that is the reason, why it was divided into several files. The main files are moderncv.cls, moderncvbodyX.sty, moderncvheaderX.sty and moderncvfootX.sty. They define the cv and the letter depending of the used style and colour. X can be a roman number between i and v, depending if it is body, header od foot. ...

I found this in the sources of moderncv \strut\raggedleft\raisebox{\baseletterheight}{\color{color1}\rule{\hintscolumnwidth}{0.95ex}} it creates the box. The full definition for the section is \RenewDocumentCommand{\section}{sm}{% \par\addvspace{2.5ex}% \phantomsection{}% reset the anchor for hyperrefs \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{#2}% ...

REVISED ANSWER Upon comment from the OP, it became more clear that the OP desired to have a transparent signature image overlay the page text. The problem with my original solution was that the image was laid down prior to the name, and thus underlaid the name. Attempting to make the signature a \stackon overlay to the name also did not work, because the ...

You have only one missing } in your code and a missing command \flushfoot to start the second address in a new line. Please see the following MWE (changes marked with <========): \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \moderncvstyle{casual} % \moderncvhead[\moderncvstyleheadoptions]{1} % \moderncvbody{1} ...

The issue is the font itself, as seen by the \fbox around "A" and "D" in this MWE below. It is typical for font designers to allow "protrusions" of letters beyond their bounding box. It is a form of trickery to (if done properly) give the appearance of uniformity by introducing a little bit of non-uniformity...a form of optical illusion. In this case, it ...

Please check the documentation of current moderntimeline (texdoc moderntimeline). The package has changed since the date, your linked question was asked ... In the documentation on page 3 you will find: You can also specify months (which are used only for adjusting the bar length: they are not shown in the labels), separated by a slash from the year ...

To add to the nice (and correct) answer of Steven B. Segletes, notice that the reason of the protrusion is the following: Thiese square and circle have the same height, but the squares look optically taller than the circles, especially at small size. The same for lining letters at the start or end of a paragraph. This is the reason why the font designers ...

Seems to work if you add \protect before \includegraphics, i.e. \section{Habilitaciones por (valided by) \protect\includegraphics[height=1cm,valign=c]{example-image-16x10}} To use the valign=c key, which aligns the image vertically centered on the line, you need to add \usepackage[export]{adjustbox} to the preamble. \documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{moderncv} ...

Not the cleanest way to do it, but \documentclass{article} \usepackage{color} \definecolor{lightgray}{RGB}{185,185,185} \definecolor{darkgray}{RGB}{115,115,115} \begin{document} \begin{flushright} \color{lightgray}{\Huge Bejamin} \color{darkgray}{\Huge Franklin} \end{flushright} \vspace{-0.5cm} \textcolor{lightgray}{\rule{\linewidth}{0.5mm}} \end{document} ...

Well, I think there is not so much space you think. To visualise this I added option showframe to the call of geometry. If you now add some more words to your \cvcomputer the result looks very different (without changings of the layout!). If you insist in changing the layout you need to define a new command, for example \mycvcomputer. Then you can ...

First of all, why do you define a custom subsection command and not just redefine the default? To me it would make more sense to redefine it. Next thing I did was looking up the section/subsection definitions in moderncv. They are as follows: \RenewDocumentCommand{\section}{sm}{% \par\addvspace{2.5ex}% \phantomsection{}% reset the anchor for hyperrefs ...

EDITED to auto-center vertically the image, using \Xcventry with an extra argument in which the underset material is provided as argument #1. I use the \stackunder macro to achieve it. It also can take an optional argument which will denote the gap between year and image. In the MWE below, for the 1st entry, I use \cventry and manually center using the ...

For the second question you might set the hintscolumnwidth(in your document, just after the documentclass): \setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{0.175\textwidth} to something you think fits better. For example 4cm: \setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{4cm}

In answer to the first question. Line 32 in moderncvstylecasual.sty % footer symbol used to separate footer elements \newcommand*{\footersymbol}{% {~~~{\rmfamily\textbullet}~~~} Simply put \newcommand*{\footersymbol}{% {~~~{}~~~}} instead

This works on me: \clearpage \recipient{\ }{\ } \date{\today} \opening{% \begin{center} \vspace{-\baselineskip} \bfseries Bewerbung um einen Arbeitsplatz als Informatiker \end{center}% Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,} \closing{Freundliche Grüße,} \enclosure[Attached]{curriculum vit\ae{}} \makelettertitle The \opening{} requires \recipient not to ...

EDIT This solution was already mentioned by @You in the comments, i just overlooked that. I'm just going to address the tikz drawings of the linkedin and github logo in the answer of @GonzaloMedina and provide a more simple version. The fontawesome package provides some nice symbols for linkedin, github and lots of more. \documentclass{article} ...

Well, in my comment I wrote "for example". That ment that there are several questions related to the tags bibliographies and moderncv on this page. At last combining some of them can lead you to the following solution. That's what I did. You asked: How can I get rid of the Publications titles? How can I use only some of the entries of my .bib file? ...
