table in a paper

Postby lonohawu » Wed May 20, 2020 10:43 am

Hi. I am fairly confused about putting a table in a paper (article). I have followed the usual instructions but the table seems to be always centered vertically on the page

How should be answer this? We do not know, what you are thinking which are the usual instructions. We do not know, what you are doing. We even do not know, if you are talking just about a table in the LaTeX sense of a tabular:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{mwe}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. \blindtext
  5.  
  6. \begin{tabular}{lcr}
  7. this & is & an \\
  8. example & of & a \\
  9. tabular & without & sense
  10. \end{tabular}
  11.  
  12. \blindtext
  13. \end{document}

or about a floating table:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{mwe}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. \blindtext
  5.  
  6. \begin{table}
  7. \centering
  8. \begin{tabular}{lcr}
  9. this & is & an \\
  10. example & of & a \\
  11. tabular & without & sense
  12. \end{tabular}
  13. \caption{An example}
  14. \label{tab:extab}
  15. \end{table}
  16.  
  17. \blindtext
  18. \end{document}


Please, always show a Infominimal working example of what you are trying. And don't forget to use the shown example to explain what should be different.
