On the basis of this topic (Moderncv casual header - photo right, name and title on the left) with this great working minimal example there are two more questions:

Resulting questions:

  1. Unfortunately, the title remains on the right hand side nevertheless. How can I also push the title to the left?
  2. How can I arrange the firstname and the familyname vertically stacked on top of one another?

  1. Remove the \null\hfill that forms part of the printing of \@title.

  2. If my "arrange the first name and the family name among each other" you mean swap them around, then you should swap around the placement of \@firstname and \@familyname in the code.

\makecvtitle

For a vertical stacking of the first/last names, you can use the following redefinition of \makecvtitle:

enter image description here

\makeatletter
\renewcommand*{\makecvtitle}{%
  \recomputecvlengths%
  \makecvfooter%
  % define optional picture
  \newbox{\makecvtitlepicturebox}%
  \savebox{\makecvtitlepicturebox}{%
    \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@photo}}%
      {
        \@initializelength{\makecvtitlepicturewidth}% Damit Länge bekannt bei Name
        \settowidth{\makecvtitlepicturewidth}{0pt}%
      }%
      {%
       \setlength\fboxrule{\@photoframewidth}%
       \ifdim\@photoframewidth=0pt%
         \setlength{\fboxsep}{0pt}\fi%
       {\color{color1}\framebox{\includegraphics[width=\@photowidth]{\@photo}}}}
        \@initializelength{\makecvtitlepicturewidth}% Damit Länge bekannt bei Name
        \settowidth{\makecvtitlepicturewidth}{\usebox{\makecvtitlepicturebox}}%
      }%
  % end define optional picture
  % name
 {\namefont\begin{tabular}[b]{@{}l} \color{color2!50}\@firstname \\ \color{color2}\@familyname \end{tabular}}%
    \hfill\usebox{\makecvtitlepicturebox}%
\\[-.35em]%
  {\color{color2!50}\rule{\textwidth}{.25ex}}%
  % optional title
  \ifthenelse{\equal{\@title}{}}{}{\\[1.25em]\titlestyle{\@title}}\\[2.5em]% 
  % optional quote
  \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@quote}}%
    {}%
    {{\null\hfill\begin{minipage}{\quotewidth}\centering\quotestyle{\@quote}\end{minipage}\hfill\null\\[2.5em]}}%

  • Thank you very much, the first problem is solved now! :-) But how can I arrange the firstname and the familyname among each other in vertical direction? (familyname below firstname / firstname above familyname)
