In the table below, I want to align the first three columns to the vertical center of the row. Tried many solutions but none worked. MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{tabu}
\usepackage{booktabs}

\begin{document}
\pagestyle{empty}
\begin{table}[!ht]
\centering
\caption{Triggermogelijkheden van INT0.}
\setlength{\tabcolsep}{8pt}
\begin{tabu}  {cccX[,l,]}
\toprule
ISC01 & ISC00 & & Omschrijving \\ \midrule
  0   &   0   & \begin{tikzpicture}\draw (0,0.3) -- (0.3,0.3) -- (0.3,0);\draw [ultra thick] (0.3,0.0) -- (1.3,0);\draw (1.3,0) -- (1.3,0.3) -- (1.6,0.3);\end{tikzpicture} & Een laag niveau op de INT0-ingang genereert een interrupt. \\ \midrule
  0   &   1   & \begin{tikzpicture}\draw (0,0.3) -- (0.3,0.3);\draw [ultra thick] (0.3,0.3) -- (0.3,0.0);\draw (0.3,0) -- (1.3,0);\draw [ultra thick] (1.3,0) -- (1.3,0.3);\draw (1.3,0.3) -- (1.6,0.3);\end{tikzpicture} & Een opgaande of neergaande flank op de INT0-ingang genereert een interrupt. \\ \midrule
  1   &   0   & \begin{tikzpicture}\draw (0,0.3) -- (0.3,0.3);\draw [ultra thick] (0.3,0.3) -- (0.3,0.0);\draw (0.3,0) -- (1.3,0);\draw (1.3,0) -- (1.3,0.3);\draw (1.3,0.3) -- (1.6,0.3);\end{tikzpicture} & Een neergaande flank op de INT0-ingang genereert een interrupt. \\  \midrule

this example worked for me

\begin{table}
\centering
\begin{tabular}{|>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{3cm}|>
{\centering\arraybackslash}m{5cm}|} \hline\textbf{Topic} & \textbf{Paragraph}
\\\hline
1 & This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph.
\\\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

I honestly don't know the tabu package.

  • It works with tabular but not with tabu. – Jesse op den Brouw Oct 4 '18 at 15:26
  • don't use tabu! it is based on old version of array and since it is not maintained, it will not be adopted to changes in array . above proposed solution works fine! – Zarko Oct 4 '18 at 23:25

I would put the text into a \parbox that's aligned on its vertical center.

I've added some structs at the beginning and end of the parbox which you may tweak (or remove) to your liking.

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{tabu}
\usepackage{booktabs}

\pgfkeys{%%

  }

\newcommand\aepic[1]{%%
  \begin{tikzpicture}[#1]
    \draw[present A] (0  ,0.3) -- (0.3,0.3);
    \draw[present B] (0.3,0.3) -- (0.3,0.0);
    \draw[present C] (0.3,  0) -- (1.3,0);
    \draw[present D] (1.3,  0) -- (1.3,0.3);
    \draw[present E] (1.3,0.3) -- (1.6,0.3);
  \end{tikzpicture} 
  }

\newcommand\mytabuparbox[1]{%%
  \parbox{3in}{\raggedright\rule{0pt}{2.5ex}#1\rule[-1.5ex]{0pt}{1pt}}}

\begin{document}

\pagestyle{empty}
\begin{table}[!ht]

\setlength{\tabcolsep}{8pt}
\begin{tabu}  {cccX[,l,]}
\toprule
ISC01 & ISC00 &                       & Omschrijving \\ \midrule
  0   & 0     & \aepic{emph C}        & \mytabuparbox{Een laag niveau op de INT0-ingang genereert een interrupt.}                  \\ \midrule
  0   & 1     & \aepic{emph B,emph D} & \mytabuparbox{Een opgaande of neergaande flank op de INT0-ingang genereert een interrupt.} \\ \midrule

  1   & 1     & \aepic{emph D}        & \mytabuparbox{Een opgaande flank op de INT0-ingang genereert een interrupt.}               \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabu}
\end{table}

\end{document}

Also, since your TikZ code is virtually all identical, I've created a command that presents the basic structure and added a few keys to get the desired effects.

You must define the cell alignment of X column you have the options l,c,r for horizontal align, and p,m,b for vertical, to control the cell text separations you have \tabulinesep value; then you must define the table width to \linewidth and declare the size of each column and each alignment this case {X[mc]X[mc]X[mc]X[5m]} the column width is proportional to each number in the X column. see tabu manual, tabu is an extension of tabularx package, you must include it in your document.

ADDENDUM:

If you want to improve to reuse the tikz code you could define a drawing with conditional parts using \ifnum{contdition} drawing_statements \fi, and reuse a path coordinates asingning a name using coordinate(coordinate_name), so you can use the coordinate names to asign some in conditional drawings; in your example there are 3 switching objets you can control if they apear or not using values like in \sqwave[#1][#2][#3]{} each #number controls if some apears or not, in this case apears if the #number value is 1.
