# LaTeX Tip: Long Tables

19 Feb 2017

You shouldn't really be in this scenario when writing a paper you intend on publishing. This one is more for note-taking where you may have a large table containing a lot of information, and many rows. To enable the table to span across multiple pages, do the following:

\usepackage{longtable}{ | p{0.2\linewidth} | p{0.2\linewidth} |}

% ...

% text here

% ...

\begin{longtable}

thing-1                   & thing-2                  \\
thing-3                   & thing-4                  \\

\end{longtable}
