I would like to know how to reduce the size of this table, since it is larger than the text width on one page. Or should I fix the width of each column? If yes how?

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[!htbp]
  \centering
\caption{Comparison of the CCSHR estimators based on beta and logit-normal distributions}
\begin{tabular}{c|ccc|ccc}
\toprule
   & \multicolumn{3}{c|}{pH 1.4} & \multicolumn{3}{c}{pH 2.2} \\
\midrule
 & \multicolumn{1}{c}{\textit{N}$_{\text{max}}$ (nm)} & {\textit{C}$_{\text{D}}$\textsuperscript{'}} (µM)& \textit{D} & \textit{A}$_{\text{max}}$ (µm) & \textit{D}$_{\text{D}}$\textsuperscript{'} (µm) & \textit{A} \\
\\[-1em]
{Molecule AB} & \multicolumn{1}{c}{2.0 ± 0.2} & {7.9 ± 0.6} & {4.7 ± 0.1} & {7.8 ± 0.3} & {26 ± 6} & {0.87 ± 0.09} \\
{Molecule C} & \multicolumn{1}{c}{9.2 ± 0.2} & {25.9 ± 1.4} & {2.07 ± 0.04} & {1.8 ± 0.3} & {70 ± 5} & {0.19 ± 0.06} \\
%\bottomrule
\hline 
\end{tabular}
\label{tab:addlabel}
\end{table}

tex tex tex text tex tex tex t ex text text  tex tex tex text tex tex tex t ex text text tex tex tex text tex tex tex t ex text text tex tex tex text tex tex tex t ex text text 

\end{document}

Result

I solve it while adding this line command: \setlength{\tabcolsep}{.085cm}

However I have a discontinued vertical line before column Amax. Do you know how to fix it?enter image description here

  • @koleygr The link I've posted treats all table dimensions, especially width... At least the first point of the answer is called "1. My table/tabular is too wide. What can I do to make it fit?"

  • I found a way to fix it: \setlength{\tabcolsep}{.085cm}

The problem with the gap in the vertical line is caused by \\[-1em].


My suggestion is redo the table a bit and remove all the vertical lines:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage[separate-uncertainty=true]{siunitx}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[!htbp]
  \centering
    \caption{Comparison of the CCSHR estimators based on beta and logit-normal distributions}
    \label{tab:addlabel}
    \setlength{\tabcolsep}{.12cm}
    \begin{tabular}{
        @{}
        l
        @{\hspace*{0.25cm}}
        S[table-format = 1.1(2)]
        S[table-format = 2.1(2)]
        S[table-format = 1.2(2)]
        @{\hspace*{0.25cm}}
        S[table-format = 1.1(2)]
        S[table-format = 2.0(2)]
        S[table-format = 1.2(2)]
        @{}
    }
        \toprule
      & \multicolumn{3}{c}{pH 1.4} 
      & \multicolumn{3}{c}{pH 2.2} \\\addlinespace
%       \cmidrule(l{0cm}r{0.25cm}){2-4}\cmidrule(r{-0.0cm}l{0cm}){5-7}
        & {$N_{\text{max}}$(\si{nm})} 
        & {$C_{\text{D}}'$(\si{\mu M})}
        & {\textit{D}} 
        & {$A_{\text{max}}$(\si{\mu m})}
        & {$D_{\text{D}}'$(\si{\mu m})}
        & {\textit{A}} \\
        \cmidrule(l{0cm}r{0.25cm}){2-4}\cmidrule(r{-0.0cm}l{0cm}){5-7}
        Mol.\ AB & 2.0 +- 0.2 & 7.9 +- 0.6 & 4.7 +- 0.1 & 7.8 +- 0.3 & 26 +- 6 & 0.87 +- 0.09 \\
        Mol.\ C & 9.2 +- 0.2 & 25.9 +- 1.4 & 2.07 +- 0.04 & 1.8 +- 0.3 & 70 +- 5 & 0.19 +- 0.06 \\
        \bottomrule
    \end{tabular}
\end{table}

  • (+1) my excuse for almost the same answer: me and my internet connection are on vacation, so all here is very slow (connection, reaction time, my typing ...), so didn't observe your answer before send mine. (!1:0 for you)

  • @Zarko Don't worry, I think you using tabularx is already enough difference to justify a separate answer. Wish you a nice vacation! Jul 4, 2017 at 15:34

without knowing anything bout your page layout (your provided code hasn't preamble!) is hard to say anything what can be cure for your problem. For example with preamble

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[margin=30mm]{geometry}

works fine. Consequently the most of my answer is dedicated to off-topic issues:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{booktabs, tabularx}
\usepackage{siunitx}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{caption}

 \usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
    \begin{table}[!htbp]
\sisetup{separate-uncertainty=true}
\setlength\tabcolsep{2.5pt}
\centering
    \caption{Comparison of the CCSHR estimators based on beta and logit-normal distributions}
\sisetup{separate-uncertainty=true}
\setlength\tabcolsep{2.5pt}
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{@{}
                  >{\raggedright}X 
                                 S[table-format=1.1(1)]
                                 S[table-format=2.1(1)]
                                 S[table-format=1.2(1)]

                                 S[table-format=1.1(1)]

                                 S[table-format=1.2(1)]
                        @{}}
    \toprule
   &    \multicolumn{3}{c}{pH 1.4} 
        &   \multicolumn{3}{c}{pH 2.2}                                  \\
    \cmidrule(lr){2-4}\cmidrule(lr){5-7}
Molecule
    & {$N_{\max}$ (nm)} & {$C_{\text{D}}'$ (\si{\micro\mole})} & {$D$}
        & {$A_{\max}$ (µm)} & {$D_{\text{D}}'$ (µm)} & {$A$}            \\
    \midrule
Molecule AB & 2.0(2) & 7.9(6)  & 4.7(1)  & 7.8(3) & 26(6) & 0.87(9)  \\

    \bottomrule
\end{tabularx}
\label{tab:addlabel}
\end{table}
\lipsum[1]
\end{document}

Edit: well, samcarter beat me with almost the same solution for 30 minutes! I recognize this when already upload my answer (my bed!). So in the first delete my answer, now I make small corrections of the first version of my answer and reopen it (because between them are (slightly of) slightly differences :).
