Update... after a update to recent version of siunitx, everything is fine now. Thanks a lot @daleif and @crissov :-)

range-units = single,alsoload=synchem,separate-uncertainty

    \caption{Some table}
    S[table-format = 1.3(4),table-number-alignment=left]}
    Hello world & {some numbers}\\
    Hello world & 1,234\pm 5,678\\
    Hello world & 1,234\\
Hello world & 1,234\pm 5,678\\

Results in some bad alignment for the line without uncertainty - see picture: bad alignment

I've tried to get a left-aligned result with the table-number-alignment=left argument, but it didn't work out so far. Is there an option for aligning lines with numbers without uncertainity like numbers with, so the result is like

1,234 +/- 5,678


1,234 +/- 5,678

(decimalsymbols are vertical aligned)?

Thanks for your help!

Which siunitx version are you using? In my version 2013/07/31 v2.5s, the alignment is as expected, the 2nd row 1234 is aligned with the other 1234. – daleif Feb 3 '14 at 16:09
Like @daleif, I can’t reproduce the result, getting instead what you desire. Anyways, \hphantom might provide a hacky solution. – Crissov Feb 3 '14 at 16:12
This question appears to be off-topic because it has been resolved with an update to the package – cmhughes Feb 3 '14 at 18:26
