### changing color of title/name in medium-length-professional-cv

Hi there,
I'm new to this and have managed to change the color of the section headings, but was trying to change the name of the name of the CV user to match this. How would I go about this?

Hi,

welcome to the forum!

You can put the color in the \name macro:

`\protected\def\mycolor{\color{orange}}\name{\mycolor John Smith} % Your name`

I used `etex'`s \protected macro feature, so the `\MakeUppercase` within the name printing macro doesn't change orange to ORANGE.

In general, I would not put style changes into a name or text macro, but it's the easiest here to get it done quickly.
