Captions on side-by-side tables using minipage command

Postby lnich » Sun Jan 09, 2022 1:30 am

Hi,

I was wondering why I am unable to see table caption using \minipage command: apparently right-side table caption overlaps left-side table caption but I do not understand why. Can someone help me? I leave the Latex code I wrote.

\newcolumntype{x}[1]{>{\centering\arraybackslash\hspace{0pt}}p{#1}}
\newcolumntype{?}{!{\vrule width 1pt}}

            \begin{table}[H]
                \tiny
                \begin{minipage}[b]{0.4\textwidth}
                    \centering
                    \begin{tabular}{?x{26mm}?x{20mm}?}
                        \Xhline{2.5\arrayrulewidth}
                        \textbf{Ingredient} & \textbf{WT. Percent} \\ \Xhline{2.5\arrayrulewidth}
                        R-45M (1\% A02246) & 13.83 \\ \hline
                        IPDI & 0.86 \\ \hline
                        HX-752 & 0.30 \\ \hline
                        TPB & 0.01 \\ \hline
                        \textit{Mg} & 22.00 \\ \hline
                        AP & 62.80 \\ \hline
                        \textit{Fe$_{\,2}$O$_{\,3}$} & 0.20 \\ \Xhline{2.5\arrayrulewidth}
                    \end{tabular}
                    \captionof{table}{\textit{Mg} composition}
                    \label{tab: neutralized composition}
                \end{minipage}%
                \hspace{7mm}
                \begin{minipage}[b]{0.4\textwidth}
                    \centering
                    \begin{tabular}{?x{15mm}?x{35mm}?x{22mm}?}
                        \Xhline{2.5\arrayrulewidth}
                        \rule{0pt}{14pt}\shortstack{\textbf{Exhaust} \\ \textbf{Products}} & \shortstack{\textbf{Nozzle Exit} \\ (1000 psi - 14.7 psi - 1962 K)} & \shortstack{\textbf{50-50 Air} \\ (14.7 psi - 300 °F)} \\ \Xhline{2.5\arrayrulewidth}
                        \textit{C$_{\,2}$H$_{\,4}$} & - & 0.128 \\ \hline

                    \end{tabular}
                    \captionof{table}{\textit{Mg} exhaust products}                    
                    \label{tab: neutralized composition}
                \end{minipage}
            \end{table}

Captions on side-by-side tables using minipage command

Postby Bartman » Mon Jan 10, 2022 1:04 am

More context, please, so that we can reproduce the problem.

Some recommendations for packages that may be useful for the example in some way:


If none of the sets of options of the table environment suits you, then replace it by a minipage in a center environment.

You don't need \captionof in the table environment.

Labels must be unique.
