ColumnAlignments

  • ColumnAlignments is an option for GridBox which specifies how entries in each column should be aligned.
  • The following settings can be given:
  • Lists of settings are used cyclically if there are more columns in the grid than elements in the list.
  • With the setting ColumnAlignments->" c " a column will be right justified if the character c appears nowhere in it.
  • You can insert invisible \[AlignmentMarker] characters in the entries in a grid to specify how these entries should be aligned.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.8.11.
  • See also: RowAlignments, ColumnsEqual, TableAlignments, TextAlignment.
