Hi Xavier,

Can the left sidehead column be ignored/avoided in moderncv and instead use left justified sections?

Thanks in advance

Not with the existing code. But it's up to you to redefine the commands you need to implement your own style :)

Can you comment whether I am looking at the correct segment to carry out my intended modification.
I just know some basic latex. Any pointers here will be greatly appreciated.

\newcommand*{\mycventry}[6]{%
  \cvline{#1}{%
    {#2}%
    \ifx#3\else{, {\slshape#3}}\fi%
    \ifx#4\else{, #4}\fi%
    \ifx#5\else{, #5}\fi%
    .%
    \ifx#6\else{\newline{}\begin{minipage}[t]{\linewidth}\small#6\end{minipage}}\fi
    }}%

Yes, but also \cvline, \section, \subsection at least.

If I understand correctly what you want, you need to fully create a new style. There is no easy way to simply suppress the hints column (that's how it's called in the code) and move its content somewhere else :(

Can you help with this problem?
