tabfigures - Using tabular figures with LaTeX

The tabfigures package is a collection of patches for using
tabular figures in some LaTeX environments where numbers should
line up vertically such as the table of contents and enumerations.


To use this package, include


in the preamble of your LaTeX document. See the PDF documentation for
the available options and other details.


1. Run `latex tabfigures.ins` to generate the LaTeX package.

2. Create the following directories in a local texmf tree:

   - doc/latex/tabfigures
   - tex/latex/tabfigures

3. Copy all necessary files into the texmf tree:

   - tabfigures.pdf goes to doc/latex/tabfigures
   - tabfigures.sty goes to tex/latex/tabfigures

4. Afterwards, you may need to regenerate the file database:

tab­fig­ures – Main­tain ver­ti­cal align­ment of fig­ures

Knuth de­signed his orig­i­nal fonts with tab­u­lar fig­ures (fig­ures whose width is uni­form); this makes some lay­out prob­lems rather sim­ple. In more re­cent times, fonts (such as Min­ion Pro), which of­fer pro­por­tion­ally spaced fig­ures, are in­creas­ingly be­ing used.

The pack­age pro­vides mech­a­nisms whereby such pro­por­tional fig­ures may still be aligned in tab­u­lar style (for ex­am­ple, in the ta­ble of con­tents).
