I'm trying to figure out how to create a table with the \matrix command.

Almost got it, but not quite:


\matrix (m) [matrix of nodes,
nodes={draw=black, font={\ttfamily}, align=left, text width=1.5cm},
column sep=0,row sep=0,
column 1/.style={minimum width=2cm},
column 2/.style={minimum width=3cm},
foo & 1 \\
bar & "Wilson"\\
baz & true \\
quux & 8.736e22 \\


The space between cells is screwed up; how can I fix?

enter image description here


Set the text height for the nodes, currently the nodes are adjusting their height to the box within them.

  • any way to do that on a row-by-row basis in case some rows are oddball? – Jason S Oct 21 '16 at 2:50

  • Wait -- this doesn't work, I tried adding minimum height=2cmto line 8 and it does increase the height of all the cells but there's still that damned gap before quux. – Jason S Oct 21 '16 at 4:52
  • Try setting text height and text depth. See revised answer – stephematician Oct 21 '16 at 6:04
