Hey fellas, look at the picture given above. I want (continued) to be completely left aligned, however, leftalign not working in tabularx (ltablex) env. for me, and hence I am using \hfill. Though hfill works to some extent, but doesn't yield a complete left alignment. Any solutions for modifying hill or any other solution to fix this? Thanks.

\usepackage{ltablex}
\usepackage{threeparttable}

  • The line which bothers me is this : \bottomrule\hfill\small\textit{(Continued)}\endfoot \bottomrule\insertTableNotes\endlastfoot

Since you speak of tabularx: in tabular environments, there's space before and after a column. You can remove it by inserting @{} in the corresponding place of the column definitions, such as:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\begin{document}
\begin{tabularx}{4cm}{@{}Xr@{}}
\hline
Number & 42\\
\hline
\end{tabularx}
\end{document}

table output

Similar, if you use \multicolumn:

\multicolumn{2}{@{}l}{...}

Your MWE becomes:

table output

And in your case of the "Continued" line, use \multicolumn instead of \hfill:

\bottomrule\multicolumn{2}{@{}r@{}}{\small\textit{(Continued)}}\endfoot

Continued line
