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 ...

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}% ...

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} ...

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} ...

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 ...

Well, class moderncv offers different commands you could use for your list. I added them into the following MWE to show all possibilities. If you insist in your list inside \cvitem there is some programming needed. Please have a look to the following code: \makeatletter \newcommand*{\mycvitem}[3][.25em]{% ...

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 ...

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}

I have reinstalled TexLive and the problem is gone. It seems like this latex distribution is rather unstable. I didn't install any updates, not for TexLive and not for TexStudio or Windows. I'm not aware of any change to my system setup. And yet the very same code that compiled a few days ago is broken today. I would describe myself as a power user, ...

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 ...

Instead of fighting with the sorting procedures there is---in my opinion---an easier way. You can use a bibliography style which does not sort the entries in the bib files, for example style unsortdin. Then you can write your bib files and sort the entries by your own: the first paper is the lowest, the next paper you write above etc. Same for Theses ...

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? ...

It seems that you are using an older version of moderncv. You used the command \makecvtitlenamewidth that has been renamed with version 2.0.0 of moderncv. The following MWE compiles with current version 2.0.0: \documentclass[11pt,letterpaper,sans]{moderncv} \moderncvstyle{classic} \moderncvcolor{black} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} ...

At last there is a little bug in the class moderncv. One possibility is to write \name{Klmopq}{\\[1ex]\mbox{VeryLongName}} With \\[1ex] you get a new line with 1ex distance between the two lines. Change 1ex to values you want. Command \mbox does not allow a hyphenation of the VeryLongname. With command \setlength{\makecvheadnamewidth}{12cm} you can ...

If you check the examples comming with class moderncv you can find several commands prepared doing a layout you want. But if you insist some lines of your code be reworked. But at last (in my opinion) your question to have a centered "Programming languages" breaks the layout principles of class moderncv. The first column is right justified, so you can ...

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 ...

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, ...

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} ...

Don't use \hbox; you're going to have surprises if you do. Just shift down the rule and the picture. Don't forget to protect the end-of-lines. \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry} \moderncvstyle{casual} \moderncvcolor{blue} \name{John}{Doe} \begin{document} \makecvtitle ...

Here is a suggestion using \raisebox to shift the picture upwards. \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \usepackage{fontenc} \usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry} \moderncvstyle{casual} \moderncvcolor{blue} \name{John}{Doe} \begin{document} \makecvtitle \hbox{% ...

It seems you have an problem with your TeX distribution installation on your computer or you tried to install two different moderncv versions (1.5.1 and 2.0.0) on your computer. Please check this. Best would be to update your TeX distribution and afterwards check, that all packages (moderncv too) are up to date. How to do that depends on your operating ...

Here's a solution that might work for you using TikZ: \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \usepackage{fontenc} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry} \moderncvstyle{casual} \moderncvcolor{blue} \name{John}{Doe} \usepackage{tikz} ...

\includepdf[pages=1]{./erika.pdf} has to be between \end{g-brief} and \end{document}. Works fine :)

As mentioned in your comment, you are using an old version of moderncv. Yours is version 1.5.1, the current one is 2.0.0. Because I have only the current one installed I can show you only an MWE for the current version. The current version uses different command names, that's at last your problem. Before we can check where your problem comes from we ...
