I wish to allow a specific table cell to overflow horizontally without affecting indentation of the column that the overflowing cell reaches into. How can this be achieved? Google/Stackoverflow isn't offering up much, but it might be due to my lack of good ways to word this problem concisely.

 \makebox[0pt][l]{very wide stufffffff}

takes up no space and over (or actualy under) prints anything to the right of it so you can put such a construction in one table cell without affecting the width of that column.

  • Wonderful formatting trick, works great!
