Non-centered cells in table

Postby Kotoschow » Thu Nov 05, 2015 9:15 am

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to no avail to create a table every cell in the row starts at the same height. Right now, every two cells in a row are centralized with respect to each other. So instead of:

  1. Col1|Col2
  2. Row1| |bla
  3. |bla |bla
  4. | |bla


I want:

  1. Col1|Col2
  2. Row1|bla |bla
  3. | |bla
  4. | |bla


That is, the first line in every cell in the row starts at the same level.
Suggestions anyone?
Thanks!

What you want is the LaTeX standard for p-columns. Are you using m-clumns by any chance? Don't.

To really help you, we need to see a minimal working example.

Okay I tried p-columns and it solved my original problem but now it turns out I have a new problem: the table itself is centered with respect to the in a list. I provide a MWE which demonstrates this. This MWE produces a list with a table such that the table is centered with respect to the item label. However I want all of them to appear in the same line.

  10. \end{enumerate}
  11.  
  12. \end{document}

Very good example, the tabular is a box and gets typeset with its vertical center aligned with the baseline of the surrounding text. Use the optional argument to get the top of the box aligned.

  1. \documentclass{article}
  2.  
  3. \begin{document}
  4.  
  5. \begin{enumerate}
  6. \item \begin{tabular}[t]{p{2pt}p{5cm}}
  7. * & This curriculum vitae template has been designed for
  8. an academic CV. The current structure provides a summary
  9. of academic history without going in-depth on any one
  10. constituent part but the
  11. \end{tabular}
  12. \end{enumerate}
  13.  
  14. \end{document}


I hope you are not designing a template. By the way, what is your definition of a template? Personally, i am very confused.
