I'm newbie in TeX, so I've decided to ask for some help.

I'm working on technical documentation for my job and I need to create a 4-column table, where text in first two columns top-aligned and centered horizontally, last two aligned with last string of second column. But I can't achieve this.

I've tried this: Align text at the bottom of the table cell

and this: Vertical alignment in tabular cells with variable height

But the closest result which I able to obtain is:

enter image description here

So, last three columns is OK, first one - not, it should be top-aligned.

I was successful to overcome this by usage of \multirow environment, but it's should be implemented individually to rows. If' I'll do this for long tables - it'll make me insane. I want one fixed style in preamble, if it's possible.

Here is my table in main body:

    %russian technichal standart documentation class
     \documentclass[russian, 14pt, utf8, columnsxxiv, columnxxxi, columnxxxii, pointsection, hpadding = 10mm]{eskdtext}

     %%%For working of eskdx, also cyrillic
     \usepackage{xecyr}

     %%%set TNR as main font
     \setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Times New Roman}

     %%%Additional position options
     \usepackage{float}

     %%%advanced tables
     \usepackage{tabularx}
     \newcolumntype{Y}{>{\centering\arraybackslash}X}      
     \newcolumntype{d}{>{\centering}b{.25\textwidth}}
     \newcolumntype{s}{>{\centering}b{.1\textwidth}}
     \newcolumntype{a}{>{\centering}p{.25\textwidth}}

     %%%redefine command for № -symbol, because eskdx quite old package
     \renewcommand{\No}{\textnumero}

     \begin{document}

     \begin{table}[H]
     \label{appA}
     \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{a|d|s|Y}
     \hline 
     Наименование & Основные технические данные & Кол., шт. & Примечание  \\ 
     \hline
     text text text text text text text & text text text text text text text text text text& {1} & text  \\ 
     \end{tabularx} 
     \end{table}

     \end{document}

I'll appreciate any help!

    your codes snippets aren't very helpful. please, be so kind and merge and extent them to complete small document, called mwe (minimal working example) beginning with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. welcome to tex.se!

As far as I understand your request, the following solves the problem (sorry for poor representation of Russian language by Latin characters):

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tabularx}
      \newcolumntype{Y}{>{\centering\arraybackslash}X} 
      \newcolumntype{d}{>{\centering}b{.25\textwidth}}
      \newcolumntype{s}{>{\centering}b{.1\textwidth}}
      \newcolumntype{a}{>{\centering}p{.25\textwidth}}
    \newcolumntype{c}{>{\centering}b{.25\textwidth}<{\vfill}}
\begin{document}

\begin{table}
     \label{appA}
 %    \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{a|d|s|Y}
    \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{c|d|s|Y}
     \hline 
     Naimenovanije& Osnovnyje tehniceskije dannyje & Kol.,   &sht. Primechanije  \\ 
     \hline
     text text text text text text text & text text text text text text text 
     text text text & {1} & text  \\ 
     \hline
     \end{tabularx} 
     \end{table}



\end{document}

  • Yes! That's exactly what I'm need! Many thanks, Przemysław Scherwentke! Commented Oct 9, 2017 at 19:15

You can avoid breaking off the last line of the paragraph "by hand" by just backing up by a line;

  %russian technichal standart documentation class
     \documentclass[russian, 14pt, utf8, columnsxxiv, columnxxxi, columnxxxii, pointsection, hpadding = 10mm]{eskdtext}

     %%%For working of eskdx, also cyrillic
     \usepackage{xecyr}

     %%%for fonts
% don't use these     \usepackage{xunicode,xltxtra}

%  this is already loaded     \usepackage{fontspec}

    \def\No{???}% undefined command in MWE 

     %%%set TNR as main font
     \setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Times New Roman}

     %%%Additional position options
     \usepackage{float}

     %%%advanced tables
     \usepackage{tabularx}
     \newcolumntype{Y}{>{\centering\arraybackslash}X} %%% центрированный тип блока          ячейки для tabularx
     \newcolumntype{d}{>{\centering}p{.25\textwidth}}
     \newcolumntype{s}{>{\centering}p{.1\textwidth}}
     \newcolumntype{a}{>{\centering}p{.25\textwidth}}

     \begin{document}

     \begin{table}[H]
     \label{appA}
     \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{a|d|s|Y}
     \hline 
     Наименование & Основные технические данные & Кол., шт. & Примечание  \\ 
     \hline
     text text text text text text text & text text text text text text text text text text&&\\[-\normalbaselineskip]
     && {1} & text  \\ 
     \end{tabularx} 
     \end{table}

     \end{document}

  • David Carlisle, thanks! Fixed first post. Also, your variant works fine too. But there is a problem, it should be implemented to row individually. Commented Oct 9, 2017 at 19:39
  • @МаксКаширный why? you can make every logical row into two actual rows it just means that instead of & you use &&\\[-\normalbaselineskip]&& (which you could define to be some command \zz then your "row" would be aaa&bbb\zz ccc&dd\\ ) Commented Oct 9, 2017 at 19:42
  • Ok, I got it! Thanks for explanation, then it will be very nice! Commented Oct 9, 2017 at 19:48
