How to make smaller vertical distance between item bullets in one section only ?

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}
\usepackage[TextAligned,NoDate]{currvita}
\usepackage{fullpage}
\begin{document}
\begin{cv}{John Doe}

\begin{cvlist}{Sec1}
\item[2000-01--2012-12] x
\item[2000-01--2012-12] y
\item[2000-01--2012-12] z
\end{cvlist}

%how to change vertical distance between items in on section only, leaving other sections unaffected ?
\begin{cvlist}{Section that needs smaller vertical distance}
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\end{cvlist}

\begin{cvlist}{SecN}
\item[2000-01--2012-12] x
\item[2000-01--2012-12] y
\item[2000-01--2012-12] z
\end{cvlist}

\end{cv}
\end{document}

You can do so by putting

\setlength{\itemsep}{%
        -0.50\baselineskip plus 1pt minus 1pt%
      }% 

inside the cvlist environment where you want to reduce the spacing

The MWE:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}
\usepackage[TextAligned,NoDate]{currvita}
\usepackage{fullpage}
\begin{document}
\begin{cv}{John Doe}

\begin{cvlist}{Sec1}
\item[2000-01--2012-12] x
\item[2000-01--2012-12] y
\item[2000-01--2012-12] z
\end{cvlist}

%change the values in itemsep appropriately
\begin{cvlist}{Section that needs smaller vertical distance}
\setlength{\itemsep}{%
        -0.50\baselineskip plus 1pt minus 1pt%
      }%
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\item[2000-01--2012-12] A
\end{cvlist}


\begin{cvlist}{SecN}
\item[2000-01--2012-12] x
\item[2000-01--2012-12] y
\item[2000-01--2012-12] z
\end{cvlist}

\end{cv}
\end{document}

  • @HarishKumar: How can I set the vertical space between items globally for all cvlist enviroments?

  • @Robinaut: Put this after loading currvita package: \usepackage{xpatch} \xpatchcmd{\cvlist}{\setlength{\itemsep}{0ex}}{\setlength{\itemsep}{-0.50\baselineskip plus 1pt minus 1pt}}{}{}
