You can use a new column type: \newcolumntype{C}[1]{>{\centering\arraybackslash}p{#1}} with the help of array package. Complete code: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{array} \newcolumntype{C}[1]{>{\centering\arraybackslash}p{#1}} \begin{document} % Unwrapped example \begin{tabular}{l*{7}{c}} Team & P ...

To have wrapping columns of a fixed width that aligns right or centered, you need to define them, e.g. using the array package and \newcolumntype. The code belows shows possible definitions for left L, right R and centered C columns, and applies the C one to your MWE: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{array} ...

Remarks for the example below: Package raggedright provides \RaggedRight that is similar to \raggedright, but allows hyphenation to get a smoother right margin, especially for narrow columns. >{\itspape}lX: Your example image does not contain italics. Also this are two columns, a left-aligned column and an extensible column that allows several lines. ...

Please always post complete documents showing all packages used. You had fragile commands in the caption, which I avoided by supplying a short caption for the list of tables, and in the tabularx you had specified far more columns than your data used. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tabularx,booktabs} \begin{document} \begin{table}[htbp] ...

X columns are just p columns which are all set to the same width, where the width is calculated to make the total table width the specified size. So all the X and Y columns in your table are the same width, All the entries in that column are single line so you could just use c so the column is set to the natural width of its content. Or use \tabulary ...

It depends what you want It is certainly possible to ask the question. (Just use a p column if you want specified width) \hsize works. Use p m b for fixed width columns, and use c l r or X in columns without a pre-specified width. Or you could use tabulary (which is easier to use really).

I just had the same problem- turns out I had an errant \\ at the end of my final \item. Looks like you also have an extra \\ after \end{itemize} - try deleting it and see if that helps- worked for me!

The command \footnote is divided into \footnotemark and \footnotetext. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tabularx}[1999/01/07] % v2.07 \usepackage{hyperref}% 2012/10/15 v6.83k \listfiles \begin{document} \begin{minipage}[t]{.5\linewidth} \begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{c} text\footnote{footnote test} and text\footnotemark %1 and text\footnotemark %2 \\ ...

Another solution could be \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tabularx} \begin{document} \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{X!{\vrule width -3cm} X} \textbf{Greetings} & Refer to counter parts as Mr., Ms. or Mrs \\ \textbf{Gift Giving} & Gift giving is practised but not necessary. Taking someone out is also considered a gift. Gifts are generally given ...

You should add >{\centering} before the relevant column, or more conveniently define a new column type as follows: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tabularx} \newcolumntype{Z}{>{\centering\arraybackslash}X} \begin{document} \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{ |Z|Z|Z|Z|Z|Z| } \hline Equation & 2 & 3 & 5 & 7 \\ \hline $y_0 = b^{t}$ ...

I am not sure what you meant with "the text is in grouped style", but I assumed that you meant that there are some wide blank spaces between words dut to know problems in narrow columns. To prevent this, you can use a new column type with \raggedright for the X columns (you could also use \RaggedRight after loading ragged2e): \documentclass{article} ...

Placing any alignment material (including \hline) in the end clause here doesn't work, I think because of the way tabularx scans ahead for the table material. Fortunately there is a much easier approach using the environ package. First a simple basic example: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage{tabularx,environ} ...

This takes two runs of latex to measure things \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tabularx} \makeatletter \def\savepos#1{\leavevmode\pdfsavepos\write\@auxout{% \gdef\noexpand#1{\the\pdflastypos sp }}} \def\xstart#1{\expandafter\savepos\csname save@start@#1\endcsname} \def\xend#1{\expandafter\savepos\csname save@end@#1\endcsname} \def\xpad#1#2#3{% ...

There appears to be a dependency on colortbl \documentclass{article} \usepackage{array,tabularx,colortbl} \usepackage{tcolorbox} \begin{document} \begin{tcolorbox}[tabularx={X|X},title=table] cell A & Cell B\\\hline cell C & Cell D \end{tcolorbox} \end{document}
