I wonder how to remove the bullet points in the moderncv footer between, e.g. mobile phone and email. I originally asked at

Removing Symbols from moderncv Document


There are more precise (but complex) ways to achieve this but the simplest is re-defining the \footersymbol



\name{Some}{John Doe}
\title{Resume title}
\address{Dirección}{CP, Ciudad}{País}%
\extrainfo{additional information}

%            content

  • That almost does the trick. Bullet points are gone. However, the space between phone and email is as if the bullet points were still there. – Felix Dec 14 '14 at 9:41
  • @Felix Because I have inserted \renewcommand*{\footersymbol}{\qquad}. If you don't want space, use \renewcommand*{\footersymbol}{\space} or even \renewcommand*{\footersymbol}{} – user11232 Dec 14 '14 at 11:12
  • With \moderncvstyle{banking} you need to use \renewcommand*{\maketitlesymbol}{\qquad} instead (which is a more sensible name; \maketitledelimiter will be even better…). – Júda Ronén Jan 25 '15 at 8:34
  • @JúdaRonén true, but question was about casual style. – user11232 Jan 25 '15 at 8:42
  • not work anymore – Peter Ebelsberger Feb 17 '16 at 19:34

As for the casual style, the command \footersymbol was renamed to \footsymbol, see moderncvfooti.sty (line 29).

In other words, the code:


now does the job.

Just for completeness, my TeX distribution provides moderncv v2.0.0.

P.s. Haven't got enough reputation to simply comment below Harish's answer, which just needs to be updated.
