Adding a second line

Postby saria » Sun Aug 23, 2015 3:15 am

I am using the great looking tccv template by Nicola Fontana. I am new to LaTeX, I'm using OverLeaf to compose it.

I would like to add an extra line to the right after the line where the date of employment is writen. If understand well that section has a macro and I guess that is why I haven't succeeded.

This is the section:
  1. \newcommand\ifjob[3]{%
  2. \edef\JOBNAME{\jobname}%
  3. \edef\PIVOT{\detokenize{#2}}%
  4. \ifdefstrequal{\JOBNAME}{\PIVOT}{#2}{#3}%
  5. }

I would like that extra line to have the same formating of the date of employment line. I want to be able to write there the country of the employment.

I also need to use " & " in this section. I tried backslash command but no luck.

Can you please use paint and mark the area you want to change. I have no idea what or where you want to change stuff.

A minimal working example would also be helpful.

EDIT: Looking at the current git repo, there already is a place for writing the place of work, including the country.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Saria,

welcome to the forum!

\& should work, it should print the ampersand symbol. Perhaps show it together with the code around, how you use it.

If you like, you can also post complete code here. This forum is connected to Overleaf: above code blocks there's a link to Overleaf which directly opens the code block in this online editor.

Thank you both for your replies and suggestions!

I realized I could rewrite the whole section myself as there were several changes I wanted to make there. I'm happy I did it becuase I learnt a lot in the process.

Thank you again.
