Editing a template

Hello, I have a template that I got from the internet. Link below. I really like the template but I want to change a few things so I can use it for a one page resume. I am familiar with using LaTeX and it seems that I'm able to adjust some minor formatting using \vspace{}, etc.

However, I want to change the title size and make some other tweaks so that I can fit more information into the document. The yaml (is this yaml?) at the top doesn't include anything for title size or the ability to customize more. Is there something I'm missing here? How do i make more changes to this template?

Academic CV:

Hi @garbneric19912,

a very manual but by far the most configurable way would be to directly download https://github.com/svmiller/stevetemplates/blob/master/inst/rmarkdown/templates/cv/resources/template.tex and make the changes there.

For example i changed the line 248 (of the template.tex) to

\centerline{\tiny \bf $author$}

Output:

You would add the tex file into your snippet as

I'm assuming the template.tex is in the same folder as your Rmd file.
