Sorry I was not able to reproduce this problem outside Friggeri's CV template...

I am using Friggeri's CV template with the same friggeri-cv.cls (I have only changed all the Helvetica fonts to Arial). I want to use the "print" option that removes colors making everything grayscale.

With that purpose I want to include some conditionals inside the document. While I have successfully used the following structure in the preamble:

 \ifdefined\@cv@print 
 do this
 \else
 do that
 \fi

I cannot make it work inside the body of my document... is it even possible? I am new with conditionals, so I am quite lost here...

I have included the following MWE:

\documentclass[print]{friggeri-cv}%"BLACK&WHITE" should appear
%- or -%
%\documentclass[]{friggeri-cv}%"COLORS" should appear in red

\begin{document}
\header{name}{surname}
       {occupation}

% In the aside, each new line forces a line break
\begin{aside}
  \section{section}
    aaa
    bbb
\end{aside}


\section{section}
\begin{entrylist}
  \entry
    {2014}
    {\ifdefined\@cv@print
    BLACK\&WHITE
    \else
    {\addfontfeature{Color=red}COLOR}
    \fi}
    {more here}
    {and more text}
\end{entrylist}


\end{document}

  • You should use \ifcsname @cv@print\endcsname instead of \ifdefined\@cv@print, because @ is not a letter in the document body.

\@cv@print is not available as a command name unless you have a \makeatletter declaration somewhere.

Either you say

\ifcsname @cv@print\endcsname

instead of

\ifdefined\@cv@print

or, better, you define in the preamble

\newif\ifdaniceeprint % starts out false
\makeatletter
\ifdefined\@cv@print
  \daniceeprint
\fi
\makeatother

and use \ifdaniceeprint instead of the conditional involving \@cv@print.

Even better, say

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\printconditional}{%
  \ifdefined\@cv@print
    \expandafter\@firstoftwo
  \else
    \expandafter\@secondoftwo
  \fi}
 \makeatother

in the preamble and use

\begin{entrylist}
  \entry
    {2014}
    {\printconditional{BLACK\&WHITE}{{\addfontfeature{Color=red}COLOR}}}
    {more here}
    {and more text}
\end{entrylist}

in the document body.
