I don't understand why my table footnotes choose a certain length by itself and doesn't allow the text to go till the right margin of the page. There is no way to indent them with the left beginning of the table either.

\item All results chosen here are on the Pareto Front in Figure~\ref{fig:ParetoSteffen}. 
\item Results labelled in letters A$\sim$J are from Table~\ref{table:StefResult} and are presented in bold font.
\end{tablenotes}
\end{table}

I don't want three rows below. I want one whole row. This table is rotated but I don't think this affects the matter.

My last table is fine as below for no reason!

    @Bobyandbob: Not necessarily: there's the para option of threeparttable. – Bernard Nov 11 '17 at 23:45
  • [para] doesn't change my problem at all. I don't understand why my table 3 worked with exactly the same code as for table 1 and 2, which don't work. – Iila Nov 12 '17 at 17:14
  • @Bobyandbob I do want tow rows in the first table, but it produces three rows in the midde. I want one row in the second table, but it produces three rows again. I just no way make it go till the end. Something specified the length of the footnotes of these two tables strangely. – Iila Nov 12 '17 at 17:37

    thank you for provided mwe (minimal working example). unfortunately it is not complete (missing are packages, \begin{document} and used are some proprietary packages which we haven't. short inspection of your tables shows, that its code is terrible mess which cause your problems. i would not use your way how you made some row font boldface and reconsider how to design your tables. – Zarko Nov 12 '17 at 21:13

after your edit of question it become actually new question: how to set table properly ... hence new answer.

you have problems with design of your table, not with tablenotes. it works properly only in threeparttable environments and not with tabular as you used them. below is mwe based on yours, in which i consider/change the following:

  • all table are strict in threeparttable environment
  • for all columns except the first one are used S column type
  • concept for rows determining boldface fonts is replaced with individulay determined boldface for each cell
  • number defined columns are equal to number used columns
  • last table, which slightly to big, is reduced \tabcolsep
  • table are already in editor set so, that columns are obvious
  • from your tables i consider only the first few rows, others is easy to adopt to proposed solution in preamble are considered only packages needed for proposed table settings.

Now tablenotes appear as i show in the first answer.

  • Thank you soooo much! From looking at your table, I suddenly realised why my third table worked and the first two didn't: because I didn't use threeparttable for the first two and I did for the third one! Thank you so much for your examples! Your threeparttable really helped! – Iila Jan 19 '18 at 16:54

your table notes are exactly what you require. to emphasize this i wrote the following mwe with three scenarios of tablenotes use:

  • Thank you. It seams in all three cases, your texts go through the whole line. But my table 1 and 2 don't allow this to happen, and table 3 for no reason does with the same code!! – Iila Nov 12 '17 at 17:16
  • 1
    then you have something what is not considered in my mwe. if you will not provide a small, complete document, like mine in answer, which will demonstrate your problem, we can't help you. sorry, but my crystal ball is temporary busy with other tasks :-(, so i cant see, what is going-on in your document. – Zarko Nov 12 '17 at 17:22
