I am using this template for a CV. However, for some reason I am getting incomplete sections over the two pages, for example:

enter image description here

How can I make section 4 appear in the other side of the page (top of the second one)? Also Section 5 is not appearing in the second side of the second page. Any idea of how to fix this issues? I tried to use \vspace but its not working.

The minimum example:

main: mwe.tex

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper,academicons]{altacv}


\geometry{left=1cm,right=9cm,marginparwidth=6.8cm,marginparsep=1.2cm,top=1.25cm,bottom=1.25cm}


\ifxetexorluatex
  % If using xelatex or lualatex:
  \setmainfont{Carlito}
  \usepackage{hyperref}
  \usepackage{academicons}
  \usepackage{fontawesome}
  \usepackage{marvosym}
  \usepackage{lipsum}


\else
  % If using pdflatex:
  \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  \usepackage[default]{lato}
\fi

% Change the colours if you want to

\definecolor{hanblue}{rgb}{0.0, 0.25, 0.42}

\definecolor{SlateGrey}{HTML}{2E2E2E}
\definecolor{LightGrey}{HTML}{666666}
\colorlet{heading}{hanblue}
\colorlet{accent}{hanblue}
\colorlet{emphasis}{SlateGrey}
\colorlet{body}{LightGrey}

% Change the bullets for itemize and rating marker
% for \cvskill if you want to
\renewcommand{\itemmarker}{{\small\textbullet}}
\renewcommand{\ratingmarker}{\faCircle}

Well, you need to rephrase your sidebar content for page one to be shorter or you have to move the last part to sidebar page two.

You also should rephrase/shorten or dividing section 2 on the left side of page 1. The part not fitting on page has to be moved to page two then.

You mark the starting of page 2 with

 \cvsection[\jobname-page2sidebar]{Section 3}

Please see that I used \jobname- to insert the file name of your main tex file, for example mwe if you use file mwe.tex for your cv. The reason I want not to overwrite your original sidebar files with my mwe, because I used package filecontents (only for this mwe, you keep your files using!) to get a compiling mwe containing three tex files ...

and resulting page 1

page 1

and page 2

page 2

As you can see now section 5 in the sidebar 2 is too long.

The template you are using forces you to rephrase your text until it fits the page(s) ...

  • Is there any way of modify the template in order to allowing to have lager columns? – anon Mar 30 at 22:05
  • @anon No, the layout is designed for single pages. You have to keep that in mind. The defined colums in this template can not span pages ... – Kurt Jun 15 at 3:42
