Changing the QR code on a CV

One of the available sections on your PDF Cv is the "QR Code" section. This section consists of a text block and a QR code. The QR code appearing on your CV was generated when you generated the CV or the section for the first time. Unfortunately its link can't be modified. The way around then will be to add a new section with the link that you need, copy and paste the text from the old section if you have any and then remove the section with the outdated QR code.
