I have a table as described here.

It has a \Downarrow on the left side.

I would like to add a caption to this, but I have had no luck due to the whole tabular environment being contained in math mode ($...$).

    First of: always provide code (full minimal example). Then everyone know what you are doing. Secondly: you can only add captions inside a floating env (or use \captionof from the caption package). Since you show no code we have no idea what you are doing.

You tried to encapsulate the table environment around it like this?


\left\Downarrow% Use `\left.` if don't want arrow on this side.
\begin{tabular}{r r}
 1:00 & 2 \\
 3:00 & 4 \\
 5:00 & 6 \\
 7:00 & 8 \\
 8:00 & 10 \\
\right\downarrow%  Use `\right.` if don't want arrow on this side.

This yields for me: table screenshot

  • Thank you, I realised my problem. My code was identical to the link I provided, except for that I had two tabular environments side-by-side enclosed in double $$.

  • You are welcome. Next time, when asking a question here, you should post a MWE as @daleif suggested.

  • Yes, my bad, frustration got the best of me and I rushed the question. Btw, do you know if it is possible to increase the thickness of the arrows ? So use \downarrow instead of \Downarrow, but make it thicker/more obvious ?

  • Of you draw the arrows in TikZ then yes. But here I would doubt it.
