When using moderncv package to make my CV, how to reduce the space between the personal info (e.g. phone, email, etc) and the quote? This post was asking the exact same question, but I tried the latex code from the solution and it seems that it no longer works. Wondering if there's an up-to-date solution to this.

This code modifies the quote style by adding a negative space (-2em in this example) before the quote, thus controlling the space between the quote and the previous information.

(moderncv 2022-02-21 v2.3.1)


% !TeX TS-program = pdflatex

\usepackage[scale=0.85, top=1.5cm, bottom=1cm]{geometry}

\title{Resumé title}
\address{street and number}{postcode city}{country}
\email{[email protected]}
\extrainfo{additional information}

\quote{As any dedicated reader can clearly see, the Ideal of practical reason
    is a representation of, as far as I know, the things in themselves; as I
    have shown elsewhere, the phenomena should only be used as a
    canon for our understanding. }

\renewcommand*{\quotestyle}[1]{{\vspace*{-2em}\quotefont\textcolor{color1}{#1}}} % added <<<<<<<<<<<<<
