I have looked at similar problems on this sit namely moderncv - modify size of blank spaces and ModernCV classic style, change space below title but these relate to white space below the title itself and I am trying to reduce the white space within the title.

enter image description here

I instead would like to try and just slightly decrease the what space between the address and the socials as I think it would looks slightly better. I have tried going into the moderncv.cls files and moderncvstylebanking.sty files and adding some negative \vspace{} but to no avail. Does anyone know how I might go about this.

Thanks in advance

  • I don't get nearly that large a gap when I compile your sample document—adding just \documentclass[sans]{moderncv} which you left out. Is there anything else missing from your code?

  • There were a few lines which I accidentally left out, I have now added them but removing them does not change that distance Jul 4, 2022 at 13:33
  • maybe I should redownload the .cls and .sty files if your compilation is fine Jul 4, 2022 at 13:35

I have fixed the issue but I don't think I have dealt with the underlying issue so if anyone can make sense of it please do.

I used TexPad and a part of that, for ease I use the Built-in TexpadTex Typesetter, and for some reason this is where the issue lies. I know very little about different typesetters but I would have thought they all compile the TeX in possibly different way but always arrive at the same end product. However using the Typeset Engine as 'pdfLaTeX' I was able to fix this issue with the game.

TL:DR - I believe Built-in TexpadTex Typesetter causes this issue.

    So the solution was using pfdfLatex? If so I suggest to mark and highlight this term using Ctrl+k .
