Lyx 2.1.x goes wrong on modernCV.lyx

Postby door_way » Tue Oct 28, 2014 3:32 am

Template used: modernCV.lyx

http://www.lyx.org/trac/browser/lyx-devel/branches/BRANCH_2_0_X/lib/examples/modernCV.lyx

Note the pos of "OS", "Programming", "Scientific", "Web design".

How can i fix this? Now I use a 2.1.x version, but my CV is was made used 2.0.x version.
I just cannot get a right output except use the older one.

Lyx itself or the template(modernCV.lyx) should i dig in?

I'd need to look at your file to see what's going on in the code with that section and your preamble. Can you post it (either in lyx file format or exported to LaTeX)? You can replace your real info in all the other sections with nonsense if you don't feel comfortable sharing it but keep the computer skills section the same.

thx,

check the link given:

http://www.lyx.org/trac/browser/lyx-devel/branches/BRANCH_2_0_X/lib/examples/modernCV.lyx

At the bottom of the page, click the "Original Format", will get a file named "modernCV.lyx".
I used exactly the same one except comment out the line of 42, which references an image file "CV-image".

Pls check the link.

Ah, I thought you were having trouble with your resume file based on that template, but anyways... That CV template is 3 years old and the last version of LyX completely overhauled the way it handles moderncv. Just look at View>Source>Complete Source and you see the problem.
  1. \cvdoubleitem{}{}{}{OS}{Linux, Unix, Windows}{administration}{Apache, Mailman}

Instead of using the template's double entry, you need to use Insert menu - the first column in double entry is Left Summary, the second is Left Text, the third is Right Summary, and the fourth column you type at the end of the line after the last argument (the Right Summary).

Thanks a lot! Your are so nice and helpful! Now I get what i want though still don't know why. :-P

I know little about latex, just use lyx and right template(searched by google)
to get a nice layout. With your help, i think i will move a further step to latex.
