I would like siunitx to detect the document font family and use it for numbers in an S tabular cell, so I am using the detect-all option, which however does not seem to affect the output decimal marker (which I have set to a comma to spot the difference more easily). Using parentheses as in the first row obviously negatively affects the alignment and is counterproductive. Enlighten me as usually, please. :-)

Minimal working example:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{article}

output-decimal-marker = {,}

\begin{longtable}{| S[table-text-alignment = center, table-format = 2.2] |}
{Foo} \\ \hline
1,23 \\
45,67 \\ \hline
  • @Joseph Wright Could you please tell me whether this is a feature? If yes, what practical use does it have? – Harold Cavendish Aug 19 '11 at 8:20

Harold: Instead of output-decimal-marker = {,}, try setting output-decimal-marker = \text{.} -- or ... = \text{,} if you want it to be a comma.

  • Harold: I learned this trick from Joseph Wright! – Mico Aug 21 '11 at 23:22
