I'm using moderncv to write my CV but right now, the name is in the top-left of the page, and the information (Age, address, email etc...) in the top-right.

Is that possible to align name and information in the top-middle of the page ? I'd like something like this:

  • Full name
  • Adress
  • Phone number
  • email

(Centred).

If you could explain me how to do it (I don't know how to use '\renewcommand').

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – masu Nov 12 '13 at 1:48
  • The predefined banking style in moderncv does this. Just put \moderncvstyle{banking} in your preamble. Of course, there's then the question of whether or not you like the way that the banking style typesets the main content of your cv... – Adam Liter Nov 12 '13 at 2:01

At the time of writing, moderncv currently has 5 default themes (casual, classic, banking, oldstyle, and fancy).

Of these 5 default themes, banking is the only one that puts the title/header information in the top center of the page, like you want:

enter image description here

To use this theme, you just need to declare \moderncvstyle{banking} in your preamble.

The following MWE produces the document in the screen shot above:

\documentclass{moderncv}

\moderncvstyle{banking}

\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}

\name{John}{Doe}
\title{Resumé title}
\address{street and number}{postcode city}{country}
\phone{+3~(456)~789~012}
\email{john@doe.org}

\begin{document}

\makecvtitle

\section{Education}
\cventry{year--year}{Degree}{Institution}{City}{\textit{Grade}}{Description}
\cventry{year--year}{Degree}{Institution}{City}{\textit{Grade}}{Description}

\end{document}

While it is possible to customize moderncv, if you're not satisfied with banking, it might ultimately be easier to build your own template.
