# Moderncv package - cventry date width

I am writing my CV using `moderncv` package, everythig is nice but I have a problem with `\cventry` command. I have something like this:

(it means 2010 - now)

I would want to have this in one line, rather than in two lines. I tried looking into the `moderncv` style files but with no success. What can I do to achieve the effect I want?

• You could also write `\llap{2010--now}` to get onto one line. In this case you lap the text the left without taking any official space. – Martin Scharrer Jun 8 '12 at 10:26

It seems I found the solution to my problem, if I add this line

``````\setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{0.15\textwidth}
``````

and tweak a bit with lengths I can get the results that I wanted.
