In apa6e, tabular environments indent automatically. This does not match APA's guidelines.

One can work around this by putting a \noindent in front of every \begin{tabular}{...} line.

How can I stop the indenting of tabular environments (without using the work-around)?

Example:

\documentclass{apa6e}
\shorttitle{}
\begin{document}

\begin{table}
\caption{Caption}
\begin{tabular}{l}
\hline
This appears indented. \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}

the same without loading etoolbox

\documentclass{apa6e}
\shorttitle{}    
\let\TAB\tabular
\renewcommand\tabular{\noindent\TAB}    
\begin{document}

\begin{table}
\caption{Caption}
\begin{tabular}{l}
\hline
This appears indented. \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}

The apa6e class sets the \RaggedRightParindent length to 0.5in, which also seems to affect the tabular environment. In the following MWE, I use the etoolbox package to add a \noindent before every tabular.

\documentclass{apa6e}
\shorttitle{}

\usepackage{etoolbox}
\AtBeginEnvironment{tabular}{\noindent}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}
\caption{Caption}
\begin{tabular}{l}
\hline
This appears indented. \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}

Newsresearcher: it would be helpful for you to report these issues also to the author or apa6e so that they can incorporated into future versions. –  Alan Munn Jul 12 '11 at 15:39
    
@Alan: yes, I am reporting these to the author, and he has been releasing updated versions of apa6e. –  newresearcher Jul 12 '11 at 17:22
