# Decrease vertical space between cventries

This must be easy for you, but I am quite unable to get it right. Here is my code:

\cvsection{Education}
\begin{cventries}
\cventry
{B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering} % Degree
{POSTECH(Pohang University of Science and Technology)} % Institution
{Pohang, S.Korea} % Location
{Mar. 2010 - PRESENT} % Date(s)
{}
\cventry
{B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering} % Degree
{POSTECH(Pohang University of Science and Technology)} % Institution
{Pohang, S.Korea} % Location
{Mar. 2010 - PRESENT} % Date(s)
{}
\end{cventries}


I want to decrease vertical space between two \cventry items. Here is my current output.

The used class for this resume is awesome-cv.cls.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

• What \documentclass are you using... moderncv? If so, why style, as \cventry's layout depends on this. – Werner Jun 21 '16 at 5:49
• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – Martin Schröder Jun 21 '16 at 19:11

You can either patch the \cventry macro to reduce the space inserted after it using etoolbox:

\usepackage{etoolbox}
\patchcmd{\cventry}% <cmd>
{\\ \end{tabular*}}% <search>
{\\[-.5\normalbaselineskip]\end{tabular*}}% <replace>
{}{}% <success><failure>


The above can be inserted just before \begin{document} and will provide a global change to the \cventry macro.

Alternatively, on a case-by-case basis, you can insert something like

\vspace{-.5\baselineskip}


between \cventrys.
