I'm writing a CV using the following template:


I now want to add my address to the sidebar. By doing so I want it to look like:

Fake Street 1, 
01234 Fake Town

but all I can get is shown in the following picture:

enter image description here

I tried everything: \par, \linebreak, \newline, \\, ... but nothing seems to work as all of the examples mentioned above lead to significant errors.

Does anyone has an idea how I can make this work?

    By default, the CV template you're using does not include an address. How do you add the address to your profile? – Werner Dec 11 '18 at 17:28
  • I just added \ifthenelse{\equal{\href{\cvaddress}{\cvaddress}}{}}{}{ {$ \begin{array}{l} \hspace{3.5mm} \huge \textnormal{{\faMapMarker}} \end{array} $} & \href{http://\cvaddress}{\cvaddress} \\} in "twentysecondcv.cls" and used \cvaddress{Fake Street 1, 01234 Fake Town} in "template.tex". – offline Dec 11 '18 at 17:53

Since you are modifying the template .cls directly, you don't have to condition on whether or not you defined \cvaddress. You can just place the address and put the \cvaddress macro inside a tabular.

Specifically, I'd place

      \hspace{3.5mm} \huge \textnormal{\faMapMarker}
   $} & {\begin{tabular}[t]{@{} l @{}} \cvaddress \end{tabular}} \\

within the \makeprofile definition within twentysecondcv.cls (around line 210). It's strange to place the \faMapMarker part inside an $\begin{array}{.} ... \end{array}$ construction when using tabular is all that is needed. If you're using a tabular instead, you may have to adjust the \hspace since the column separation differs between the two.

Now you can set your address using

\cvaddress{Fake Street 1, \\ 01234 Fake Town}

The address is set to be [t]op-aligned with \faMapMarker (remove it to be center-aligned).

enter image description here

If you want less spacing between the address elements, use something like:

\cvaddress{Fake Street 1, \\[-.5\normalbaselineskip] 01234 Fake Town}

A negative space in \\[<len>] brings the elements closer together.
