In apa6e, tabular environments indent automatically. This does not match APA's guidelines.

How can I stop the indenting of tabular environments (without using the work-around)?

The solution in Stop automatic indenting of tabular in apa6e does not work

tex

\documentclass{apa6e}
\shorttitle{}
\begin{document}

\begin{table}
\caption{Caption}
\begin{tabular}{p{2cm}}
\hline
This appears indented. \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}

The apa6e class loads ragged2e, which redefines \@arrayparboxrestore to use \RaggedRight. The class does

\RequirePackage[document]{ragged2e}
\setlength{\RaggedRightParindent}{0.5in}

and the second line is responsible for the indent you see.

Just add

\setlength{\RaggedRightParindent}{0pt}

to your preamble.

\documentclass{apa6e}

\setlength{\RaggedRightParindent}{0pt}

\shorttitle{}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}
\caption{Caption}
\begin{tabular}{|p{2cm}|}% | just to show the box
\hline
This appears indented. \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}

In your preamble, put this, if not already done:

\usepackage{array}

and use this preamble for your table:

\begin{tabular}{>{\noindent}p{2cm}}
