Reducing space between signature picture and name

Postby StefanH » Wed Nov 18, 2015 3:09 pm

Hi guys,

thank your for the great looking "ModernCV and Cover Letter"-template. :)

I'm currently using the classic style, so I wanted to know, how can I reduce the space between my signature picture (.png) and my name in the cover letter?
In my point of view, there are too many blank lines between them.

I've tried to change the relevant sys-file, but now I'm running out of ideas.


Greetings,
Stefan

Welcome,

place the following block in your preamble and adjust to your needs.
  1. \makeatletter
  2. \renewcommand*{\makeletterclosing}{
  3. \@closing\\[3em]%
  4. {\bfseries \@firstname~\@familyname}%
  5. \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@enclosure}}{}{%
  6. \\%
  7. \vfill%
  8. {\color{color2}\itshape\enclname: \@enclosure}}}
  9. \makeatother
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi,

just for a better understanding: why I cannot change the \@closing\\[3em]% line in the *.sys-file?
Why do I have to move the paragraph to the *.text-file and change it there?

Greetings,
Stefan

License? Please read the first few lines in all the files starting with moderncv.
