Is there any way to align the footnotes with the table?
I'm not entirely sure I understand the question, so just to confirm:
you are inserting tables directly into the text (not in table floats);
the tables contain footnotes; the tables are centered horizontally
within the page; the footnotes appear directly under the table (not at
the bottom of the page); and you want the footnotes to begin at the left
edge of the table (rather than the left margin of the document). Is
that correct? If so, I think the following works (although it might not
be the most elegant solution):
1. Put the table inside a minipage, at the desired location.
2. Set the minipage width to approximately the width of the table
(otherwise the horizontal line above the footnotes is liable to be too
long). I don't see a way to do this automatically.
3. Use left or default justification inside the minipage. The footnote
will be left justified regardless, so you want the table left justified
within the box.
4. Put horizontal fill on either side of the minipage to center it.
(For some reason, setting the paragraph in which the minipage appears to
be centered does not do the job.)
Is that what you had in mind?
