I use tabularx for a table and wanted to incorporate some multicolumns to merge cells for readability reasons. Using multicolumns though results in a slight offset of the right vertical line. Also the text is not centered anymore. Is there a problem in my code or does tabularx conflict with multicolumn somehow?

Before and after i tried to use multicolumns. It's just a snippet of the most right column whole table.

Here is the MWE code with the error:

  • The values next to \hsize should add up to the total number of X columny. Currently they add up to 1. Also, small is not an environment. How is the Y column type defined?

  • Depending on the textwidth, a simple \begin{tabular}{lll} should work as well.

  • It worked well before I used the multicolumn inside of the table - that's why I am wondering (just by removing multicolumn and using 2 normal columns would look like the left part of the screenshot). The hsizes worked before perfectly. Y column definition: \newcolumntype{Y}{>{\centering\arraybackslash}X}. And i need to use tabularx for my cell formatting.

  • Using \begin{tabularx}{0.8\linewidth}{|>{\hsize=.36\hsize}X >{\hsize=1.86\hsize}X|>{\hsize=.78\hsize}Y|} with \hsizes that add up to 3, the code works perfectly fine.

You can do that easily with {NiceTabular} of nicematrix (the latest version : 5.2 of 2020-08-19).
