I'm new to LaTex and it seems like there's a high learning curve. I have the following table:

\begin{table}[ht]
  \centering\settowidth\rotheadsize{Next concept/}
  \renewcommand\cellalign{cl}
  \renewcommand\arraystretch{1.25}
  \caption{Title}
  \begin{tabular}{|l|c|c|c|c}
    \toprule\noalign{\vskip-1pt}\hline
    \diagbox[height=1.25\rotheadsize]{\raisebox{3ex}{Layers}}{\raisebox{-4ex}{Neurons}} & 10 & 20 & 64 \\
    \hline
    2 & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) \\
    4 & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) \\
    8 & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) \\
    12 & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) \\
    \hline\bottomrule
  \end{tabular}
\end{table}

It's a bit hard to see, but it continues too much to the right which is my main concern. Is there an easy fix for this? I tried playing with the height and arraystretch, but it didn't seem to work.

  • We need to see your page layout. Please extend your document fragment to complete, compilable document. In preamble should be loaded only to your table relevant packages.

  • Apparently your table is wider than \textwidth. Consequently it protrude right text border.
  • What you can do:
    • Increase \textwidth by loading geometry package.
    • Redesign table so, that the first column is narrower. This can be done by omitting of \diagbox and introduce new row (see MWE below):
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
%--------------- show page layout. don't use in a real document!
\usepackage{showframe}
\renewcommand\ShowFrameLinethickness{0.15pt}
\renewcommand*\ShowFrameColor{\color{red}}
%
\usepackage{lipsum}                             % for dummy text
%---------------------------------------------------------------%
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage[skip=1ex]{caption}

\begin{document}
    \begin{table}[ht]
    \caption{Title}
    \label{tab:neurons}
\centering
\renewcommand\arraystretch{1.1}
\begin{tabular}{@{} *{4}{c} @{}}
    \toprule
    &   \multicolumn{3}{c}{Neurons} \\
    \cmidrule(l){2-4}
Layers
    & 10 & 20 & 64 \\
    \midrule
2   & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) \\
4   & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) \\
8   & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) \\
12  & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) & (0.001, 0.008, 0.001, 0.001) \\
    \bottomrule
\end{tabular}
    \end{table}
\end{document}
  • By this change table has more "profesional" looks:
