In the image below there's a bullet point in between the phone number and the email address. I'd like to know how to remove it.


I'm using the banking template for moderncv.

  • Do you want to remove just that one bullet or all of them? Sep 9, 2013 at 22:40
  • The bullet point is changed to 3 spaces with: ``` \renewcommand*{\footsymbol}{~~~} ``` if: tex --version ``` TeX 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2019) kpathsea version 6.3.1 ```

The bullet is stored in the macro \makeheaddetailssymbol and is inserted between every element of the title. By default it's defined to be

    {~~~{\rmfamily\textbullet}~~~}}% the \rmfamily is required to force Latin Modern fonts when using sans serif, as OMS/lmss/m/n is not defined and gets substituted by OMS/cmsy/m/n
%   internal command to add an element to the footer
%   it collects the elements in a temporary box, and checks when to flush the box

You could update this to


to insert 3 spaces between elements, or however you wish.

  • For me this yields the following error: \maketitlesymbol undefined. \renewcommand*{\maketitlesymbol}. Why does this happen?

  • The nice people on the #latex IRC channel pointed out that using makeheaddetailssymbol instead of maketitlesymbol works!
