Size/Text in LaTeX tables

  1. Jan 14, 2007 #1
    Hi,
    wasn't sure where to put this.

    [1] how do you autowrap text(paragraphs) in a LaTeX tables without using
    multicol/multirow?
    [2] how do you set relative/absolute sizes for table cells in LaTeX like you would in MS Word?

    Thanks

    Short answer: Use p{\widthspec} as a column specifier (the arguments to \begin{tabular}).

    Long answer: See section 7 ("Rows and Columns") of the LaTeX tutorial, http://www.eng.cam.ac.uk/help/tpl/textprocessing/ltxprimer-1.0.pdf [Broken]. It describes LaTeX tables in detail with examples.
