I am using classic thesis for writing my thesis and while placing tables, the tables are aligning to the left. I want the table centered. I am attaching images of the LyX code and the output. Any help is appreciated.

Table placement:

  • as I neither use classicthesis nor Lyx: is classicthesis relevant in the context of this question (or answer)? I.e., would you center your table differently if a different class were used? – Nils L May 12 '13 at 13:35
  • @NilsL I don't think so. The answer below helped me achieve the necessary. – Morpheus May 12 '13 at 14:19

Inside the table float, right click, choose Paragraph settings, and set the Alignment to Centered.

  • What if all of the options other than "Paragraph's Default (Left)" are greyed out? – dmh Aug 8 '17 at 6:56

    @dmh I have no idea why that would be the case, I'd suggest you ask a new question that includes a minimal working example (wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample, tex.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4488). – Torbjørn T. Aug 8 '17 at 7:05
  • Thanks, Torbjørn, but I figured it out already. New to LyX and I didn't realize that my table wasn't wrapped in a float already. @other users, if you have problems, try highlighting/selecting your table (not just the cells in your table!) and then clicking "Insert > Float > Table" or using the "Insert table float" button from the top menu. – dmh Aug 8 '17 at 7:15
