I write my CV with moderncv and \moderncvstyle{casual}. \cvitemwithcomment writes the first column without bolding but the second one bolded. How can I remove the bolding from it?

  • A minimal example would be nice – user31729 Oct 31 '15 at 11:42
  • you don't mean \cventry? – touhami Oct 31 '15 at 12:39

Because you gave no MWE (please give us a MWE for your next question!), we can only guess.

I guess you are using an older version of moderncv, because with the current version 2.0.0 that does not happen. You can check this with compiling the example file of moderncv. See Languages, there is \cvitemwithcomment used.

I changed the part of Languages to the follwing code:

\section{Languages}
\cvitemwithcomment{Language 1}{Skill level}{Comment} % unchanged ==========
\cvitemwithcomment{\textbf{Language} 2}{\textbf{Skill} level}{Comment} % changed ==========
\cvitemwithcomment{Language 3}{Skill level}{Comment} % unchanged ==========

Have a look to the following result:

Languages skills with changed code

As you can see, Language 1 has no bold typing, but Language 2 has it caused by \textbf in the code.

Please check the version of moderncv you have installed, update and check your code to not use \textbf or similar inside. Then you will get the wanted result.

Here a compilable, shortend example file for moderncv with my changes:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}

\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{blue}
