How can I get a vertical line in the middle of the page ? and I want also to write same text in the right and the left of the vertical bar (like this example) :

I tried \rule but i don't know how to write same text in the right or left.

    try a minipage of a certain width+height, a \rule and a minipage again. Remember the extented minipage syntax: \begin{minipage}[c][height][c]{width}, you may also need some zero width \rule inside the minipages. – daleif May 27 '15 at 13:55

Such a rule is built in to the output routine in the format:

Thank you @daleif for your help, this what i write to get what i want:



    \hspace*{0.05\textwidth} % Whitespace between the vertical line and title page text
        \textbf{Author :} \\
        Name \\
        \textbf{Subject :} \\
        Title of the subject

   \pagestyle{empty} % Removes page numbers


As you have noticed, alignment can be tricky, particularly if you want to use the whole page.


{\vspace{.4\textheight}\textbf{\Large Informations}}\hfill
\rule[\dimexpr \topskip-\textheight]{1pt}{\textheight}\hfill

\textbf{Subjects:}\\Title of Subject 1

full page


Another Option would be the background package:

\documentclass[a4paper,oneside, 11pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[hidelinks, pdfstartview=FitH, pdfpagelayout=OneColumn, pdftex]{hyperref}
\usepackage[left=1.5cm, right=2.5cm, top=2.5cm, bottom=2cm,a4paper]{geometry}



\usepackage[natural, table, fixpdftex, hyperref]{xcolor}



{\huge\bfseries Curriculum Vit\ae}&\\[1.5\baselineskip]
Lots of & Information\\
{\Large Education}&\\[\baselineskip]
Lots of & Information\\
More & Information\\

Which produces following Output: enter image description here
