Tables with rounded corners and different sizes

Postby oldnoodle » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:59 pm

I've been trying to create a specific looking table size - but not sure.
I thought about using a standard table but failing at getting padding or rounding working.

Wanted the topics on the left side and the descriptions on the right. I've shown a mockup. Is it better to use Tikz instead of a table?

Thanks for any tips or help in advance.

(Sorry if this seems like an easy question).

Hi John,

welcome to the forum!

I write a bit late - usually I quickly answer to questions or issues with specific code. Did you already solve your task, or got help?

It's not straightforward with standard tables. But with TikZ it doesn't look hard. It's just nodes with styles. Some nodes with colors, rectangular shape with rounded corners, easy to define. And TikZ provides a matrix library for matrices of nodes, with styles per row or column or single cells. Let us know if you still work on it.
