I’m using “Abey Resume Template” from Overleaf’s Resume templates.

I want to indent everything in each section, so I change:

\newcommand{\resumeSubHeadingListStart}{\begin{itemize}[leftmargin=0.0in, label={}]}

to:

\newcommand{\resumeSubHeadingListStart}{\begin{itemize}[leftmargin=0.1in, label={}]}

1. Primary problem: But now the date-fields are NOT right-aligned.

2. Secondary problem: Also, notice that the subsequent itemize blocks are pushed down from Section-heading with more white-space than before. How to get it to be just like before?

Attempted solutions:

  • If I remove \raggedright from both places it appears in the document, everything goes out of wack and lines start overlapping everywhere (so this does not seem like a possible solution).

Thanks for any kind help.

Unless you're getting different results from me, the problem isn't that they're not right aligned. The problem is that the items inside the lists started with \resumeSubHeadingListStart are typeset inside the tabular* environments defined by \resumeSubheading, etc., which have their width set to \textwidth, which is not changed by the indentation. Because of the indent, the tabular*'s are extending into the right margin by the width of the indent.

I think the easiest solution would be to change the widths of those tabular*s as defined in \resumeSubheading, \resumeProjectHeading, etc., to use \linewidth rather than \textwidth so they take the margin into account.

\newcommand{\resumeSubheading}[4]{
  \vspace{-2pt}\item
    \begin{tabular*}{1.0\linewidth}[t]{l@{\extracolsep{\fill}}r}
      \textbf{\large#1} & \textbf{\small #2} \\
      \textit{\large#3} & \textit{\small #4} \\
      
    \end{tabular*}\vspace{-7pt}
}

and

\newcommand{\resumeProjectHeading}[2]{
    \item
    \begin{tabular*}{1.001\linewidth}{l@{\extracolsep{\fill}}r}
      \small#1 & \textbf{\small #2}\\
    \end{tabular*}\vspace{-7pt}
}

(You may have to do something similar with \resumeSubSubheading but it's hard to tell, because you don't actually use that in your example document.)
