For changing the color of section titles I do this in europasscv:


This way the section title is black when I use:

\mycvsection{Section Title}

But when I use:


I can not use the black. Can I somehow color the personal information section to?

An example output:

The colour of "sections" within europasscv is given by ecvsectioncolor. If you want this to be black, add


to your preamble. However, some things other than \ecvsections also use ecvsectioncolor. Here's the output if you use the above change:

If you want it to affect "sections" only, you could patch \ecvsectionstyle:

% \patchcmd{<cmd>}{<search>}{<replace>}{<success>}{<failure>}

Here's the output if you use the above patch only:

Here is a list of the colours defined by europasscv, if you want to change more colours (taken from europasscv.cls):

  • @AlaguraajVH: Are you using \ecvsection{\textbf{section}}?

  • @AlaguraajVH: For that specific section, you need to add \makeatletter \let\oldecv@infosectionkey\ecv@infosectionkey \renewcommand{\ecv@infosectionkey}{\textbf{\oldecv@infosectionkey}} \makeatother to your preamble.
