ModernCV – for black and white printers

The LaTeX class ModernCV does not provide a black color theme option – and printouts can therefore contain rastered colors if printed on black and white printers.

In the code section Package options -> color options I added the lines

% black



immediately after the line


Under Style definition -> color I added









immediately after the lines
