This package offers a command, based on one-column tabular environment, which allows to support a common layout for tabular column heads in whole document. Another offered command is for creation of multilined tabular cells. There are also: 1) a macro, which changes vertical spaces around all cells in tabular (like in tabls package) but based on macros of array package; 2) macros for multirow cells/heads, which use macro from multirow package. 3) macros numbered rows of cells or skipping cells in tabulars; 4) diagonally divided cells; 5) horizonral lines in tabulars with defined thickness.
Changes: Added: *) command for diagonally divided cells; *) commands for horizonral lines in tabulars with defined thickness. Added package-satellite tablists (beta): creates tabulated lists of short items (useful for lists of exersizes in textbooks) Corrections in documentation.
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team, Joachim Schrod

makecell – Tabular column heads and multilined cells

This package supports common layouts for tabular column heads in whole documents, based on one-column tabular environment. In addition, it can create multi-lined tabular cells.

The Package also offers:

  • a macro which changes the vertical space around all the cells in a tabular environment (similar to the function of the tabls package, but using the facilities of the array)
  • macros for multirow cells, which use the facilities of the multirow package;
  • macros to number rows in tables, or to skip cells;
  • diagonally divided cells;
  • horizontal lines in tabular environments with defined thickness.
