I am trying to write something like:


Proposition A $\implies$ Proposition B $\implies$ Proposition C


The only problem is those propositions should be written in two lines, and I don't know how to do that without getting back to the start of the page. I need to use this with beamer, don't know if it's somehow relevant. P.S. I solved the problem using matrix environment

If you want to split one of the propositions over multiple lines, you could use something like a \parbox or a minipage.




Proposition A $\implies$ Proposition B $\implies$ \parbox{.3\textwidth}{Proposition C very long text and even longer}


Proposition A $\implies$ Proposition B $\implies$ \parbox[t]{.3\textwidth}{Proposition C very long text and even longer}


enter image description here


Is this what you want?



\text{Proposition }A &\implies \text{Proposition }B \\
                     &\implies \text{Proposition }C



enter image description here

  • No, I didn't mean that. I meant that the single propositions are too long to be written in a single line. I need to write the single propositions in more than one line, but the chain of implications would still be in a single line

  • So, you want the line to automatically wrap and be horizontally centered?

  • Yeah, I mean something like "blablabla \\ bla bla" \implies "bla bla bla" where when you go to a new line with \\ I want to be just under the text above
