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.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Can you give an approximate graphic representation of what you need? – egreg May 22 '14 at 8:44
 \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! – Kensing May 22 '14 at 9:06
