I am not sure what to do now. You pointed me in the right direction, I've solved my question with that hint (except for the pattern showing up as black—still don't know what is causing that). I can't mark an answer as correct, unless I write my own solution (which is annoying to others on the forum). I guess I'll just let it be...This is for you future viewers!

Great! It works! One thing though, I cannot get the pattern=dots to work (only showing up as black). fill=blue!10 works.

@Pouya, exactly! I will change the question accordingly! I am also not sure how to implement this in my code. I will experiment with your suggestion.

comment Keeping the names of things consistent in LyX.
@Alan Munn I honestly do not use LyX either, I prefer TexShop/TextMate/Sublime Text, but the prospect of switching over to LyX for is intriguing. I am not yet convinced that it is a viable option. The question's title attracted me here, only to be disappointed to not see anything about LyX. I may have to open a new question.

@Charles and Alan, Could you please show how this is done in Lyx? (Or I could open a new question).

comment moderncv - How do I put the date column on the right rather than on the left
I disagree. moderncvis irrelevant. It could just as well be another class. See a similar question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/11454/… Considering that no one has answered this question after a months time, I figured it would be prudent to provide one.

comment How complete is Texpad on the iPad
@VV Texpad, great! Thank you! Your answer is timely as I just noticed the bundle manager today! Kind of hidden for such an important feature! I've installed just about ever bundle but my documents still will not compile with \usepackage{fontspec}. Is there a package list for each bundle?

comment How can I make the document as wide as possible in LaTeX
I am not sure what the problem is. I cannot seem to reproduce your error, but if I am able to in the future, I will update my answer. Until then, maybe you can try bits and pieces of the code above until it does not compile correctly. You might be able to solve your problem through debugging in this way.
