I'm currently working on a paper and I have a bunch of tables. Currently I'm using the ctable package for my tables. One of my tables is rather long and it spans more than one page. However currently the table is kinda being cut off. My question is, is there a way to make ctable behave like longtable?

    longtable provides captions and footnotes which appear to be the main things added by ctable for floating tables. Is there any reason for not just using longtable? Jul 29, 2012 at 23:44

The package doesn't provide such a possibility. The package uses minipage which makes it difficult to change the internal code. However I think switching to longtable isn't very hard.

  • And how do I switch to longtable. Just replacing ctable everywhere with longtable does not do the job.
