You have two errors. In the line \cvline{Dean's Merit List (obtaining an aggregate of over 70%)} {2009 - 2012} replace % with \% \cventry has six arguments and you are giving it only five. So write \cventry{Feb 2012 - Nov 2014}{Ecnomics and Statistics Tutor}{University of Cape Town}{Cape Town}{}{} instead of \cventry{Feb 2012 - Nov 2014}{Ecnomics ...

When you use \usepackage{lipsum} and place a \lipsum, it inherently adds \par at the end of the Lorem Ipsum. This \par forces the setting of a paragraph in whichever paragraph alignment has been set. As such, \quote{\raggedright \lipsum[2]} will set in a \raggedright fashion. However, using \quote{\raggedright <some lengthy text>} may not set ...

It's quite easy, actually. The \quote command simply stores the text in \@quote; when this text is printed it is passed as argument to \quotestyle, which is defined by default as \newcommand*{\quotestyle}[1]{{\quotefont#1}} So all you need is to redefine this macro as \renewcommand{\quotestyle}[1]{{\quotefont\raggedright#1\par}} and your quote will be ...

That is just a default (which does nothing) It gets redefined depending on options used, for example moderncv/moderncvstylebanking.sty does \renewcommand*{\makecvtitle}{% % recompute lengths (in case we are switching from letter to resume, or vice versa) \recomputecvlengths% \maketitle% % optional quote \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@quote}}% ...

Add this to your preamble \makeatletter \xpatchcmd{\makecvtitle} {\centering\begin{minipage}{\quotewidth}\centering\quotestyle{\@quote}\end{minipage}\\[2.5em]} {\centering\begin{minipage}{\quotewidth}\raggedright\quotestyle{\@quote}\end{minipage}\\[2.5em]}% {}{} \makeatletter \xpatchcmd\makecvtitle{\quotewidth}{0.9\textwidth}{}{} %% this should be ...

As suggested in comments, you should patch the \maketitle command where the space is defined as (in moderncvstylebanking.sty) . . . \flushmaketitle}\\[2.5em]} in the last line. Hence add \xpatchcmd{\maketitle} {\\[2.5em]} {\\[10pt]} % or whatever: space above the quote {}{} in the preamble to change that space. ...

You'll find numerous such empty definitions inside moderncv.cls; not just for the title. The structure of moderncv is such that it defines (via \newcommand) certain fundamental constructs when you load the class \documentclass[..]{moderncv} Then, depending on the choice of style you want, you would call \moderncvstyle{<style>} The above is ...

The dashes seem to be 'hardcoded' in the \makecvfooter macro. Below I copied the definition of that macro from moderncvstylecasual.sty and changed ~--~ to ~\textbullet~ in two places. \documentclass[12pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \moderncvtheme[blue]{casual} \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \name{John}{Doe} \title{title} ...

Don't use \cvlistdoubleitem. Use cvcolumns instead. From moderncv examples: \section{References} \begin{cvcolumns} \cvcolumn{Category 1}{\begin{itemize}\item Person 1\item Person 2\item Person 3\end{itemize}} \cvcolumn{Category 2}{Amongst others:\begin{itemize}\item Person 1, and\item Person 2\end{itemize}(more upon request)} \cvcolumn[0.5]{All the ...

Put the list in the entry rather than after it: \cventry{Feb 2012 - Nov 2014}{Economics and Statistics Tutor}{University of Cape Town}{Cape Town}{}{ \begin{itemize}[label=\textbullet] \item{\textbf{Statistics}:} Prepared tutorials, marked tests and projects and participating in computer lab sessions. \item{\textbf{Economics}}: Ensured timely upload of ...

The default \cvlistdoubleitem is set with a symbol as defined in \listitemsymbol. You can remove this via a redefinition of \listitemsymbol: \renewcommand{\listitemsymbol}{} Note that this would affect the use of \cvlistitem as well, so you may want to limit the scope of this redefinition.

Here's one possibility; the \RRsubsection command was defined in a similar fashion to the standard \subsection, but will typeset the title ragged right: \documentclass{moderncv} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \moderncvstyle{classic} \moderncvcolor{blue} \firstname{John} \familyname{Doe} \makeatletter \NewDocumentCommand{\RRsubsection}{sm}{% ...

I found that \newcommand\l@part[2]{\cvitem{\tocpagefont #2}{\tocentryfont #1}} \newcommand\l@section[2]{} \newcommand\l@subsection[2]{} with suitable formatting commands \tocpagefont and \tocentryfont does the job, without loading titletoc. Next time I should read better book.cls :-) For hyperlinking both the title and the number, just pass linktoc=all ...
