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).
