Im currently struggling with a table i latex. I want a table like this:

enter image description here

I have found a way to make a normal table like {|c|c|} and then make the title with multicolumn.

The real struggle I have is in row 2 and 4. When using multicolumn I cannot figure out how to split the text inside the box.

And how do I move the vertical line splitting the boxes from row 2 to 4?

Hope you can help!

As is suggested in @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz comment:


             hlines, vlines,
             colspec = { *{4}{X[l]} },
               hspan = minimal
\SetCell[c=4]{c}    some text
        &       &       &               \\
\SetCell[c=2]{} some longer text in two lines
        &       &   \SetCell[c=2]{} some longer text in two lines
                        &               \\
\SetCell[c=4]{c}    some text     
        &       &       &               \\
\SetCell[c=3]{} some longer text in one line
        &       &       &   some text   \\
  • Thanks! But now with the tabularray, how do I color some of the cells?

  • @Emilie, simple. In preamble load xcolor package and than selected cells color by \SetCell{fg=red, bg=yellow} <cell text>. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/625246, tex.stackexchange.com/questions/629708 and of course, package documentation where is coloring thoroughly described with lot of examples. BTW, in question you not mentioned this problem...
