# Arranging rows and columns [Tabular]

Hello there, here is my table but I can't figure out how to arrange (x,y,z) coordinates in a good looking(i mean they are not in a straight line :) ) and also every box , they start appear center-north, for good looking, I want to center-center :) sorry for bad language. thanks advance.

Here is my code, sorry for not arranging it, I haven't get used to TeX.SE yet :)

\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|}

• Can you please add some code? Commented Apr 8, 2017 at 11:11
• Please, show code by which you produce your table in form of small, complete document, which we can compile in out computers. Help us to help you! Commented Apr 8, 2017 at 11:11

• @AlperErdem, if sone else not answer before, I will give closet look late evening (GMT). In the first sight, table is huge and I cant believe, that it can be fit in text width. Otherwise, to align coordinates in line, you need to write each coordinate in separate column (with zero \tabcolsep). Also use of S column type from siunitx package would help.

I suggest a more open look to the table and also some tricks for simplifying the input.

However, I believe that the slashed form 10/3 would render better than \frac{10}{3}.

• thank you @egreg it was very useful for me , you are lifesaver :) i have one last thing to figure out, when i use  \usepackage{fancyhdr} \pagestyle{fancy} \lhead{head1} \rhead{head2}` on the page meaningless a word "draft " appears. how can i get rid of it ? Commented Apr 8, 2017 at 17:22
• @AlperErdem That is another question, ask a separate one, please! Commented Apr 9, 2017 at 6:36
