# Packages multirow and columncolor give ugly stripes [closed]

I have two problems on one slide. This is an example:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{tabulary}
\usepackage{colortbl}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{setspace}

% DEFINE COLORS
\xdefinecolor{lGrey}{RGB}{238,238,238}
\xdefinecolor{dGrey}{RGB}{64,64,64}
\xdefinecolor{myRed}{RGB}{164,30,55}

\title{Example}
\author{PM}
\date{\today}

\begin{document}

\frame{\titlepage}

\frame
{
\frametitle{Title}
\begin{center}
{\scriptsize{
\begin{tabular}{>{\columncolor{myRed}}ccc}
\rowcolor{myRed}
& \color{lGrey} Metaphor & \color{lGrey} Instrument \\
\cellcolor{myRed} & Something, & Something else \\
\cellcolor{myRed}\multirow{-2}{*}{\color{lGrey} My stuff}
& And more & (and paper and pen) \\
\cellcolor{myRed} & Hand & Leg, \\
\cellcolor{myRed}\multirow{-2}{*}{\color{lGrey} Other stuffs}
& thoughts & data \\
\end{tabular}
}}
\end{center}
}

\end{document}


The problem is that I am getting ugly stripes for multirow cells: they should be red, but between one can see white line. How can I eliminate this?

Another issue, if I may, is that table is not really centered. It is more to the right.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Could you add an entire Minimal Working Example (MWE) starting with \documentclass{} and ending with \end{document}, in order for us to have the definition of your colors and so on? – Ludovic C. Sep 10 '13 at 10:12

• For the wrong centering, remove the braces { before and after \scriptsize and also the }} before \end{center}. – egreg Sep 10 '13 at 11:02
• Does tex.stackexchange.com/q/65231/15925 help with eliminating the white lines? – Andrew Swann Sep 10 '13 at 15:04
• I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the white stripes are just a problem with some PDF viewers and pixel rounding – egreg Feb 6 '16 at 21:15
