```Peter,

If you have an output such as defined by the following t, you can
place it in the form you want by Flattening and then Partitioning the
list into lists with the number of elements you want. Maybe its not the
most elegant but it works.

Jorge

As an example;

In[55]:=

t = {{{1.1547},{0},{0},{0}},{{0},{0.755929},{0},{0}},
{{-0.258199},{0},{0.774597},{0}},{{0.},{-0.169031},{0.},{1.18322}}}

Out[55]=
{{{1.1547},{0},{0},{0}},{{0},{0.755929},{0},{0}},{{-0.258199},{0},{0.774597}
,{
0}},{{0.},{-0.169031},{0.},{1.18322}}}

In[56]:=
t=Partition[Flatten[t],4]

Out[56]=
{{1.1547,0,0,0},{0,0.755929,0,0},{-0.258199,0,0.774597,0},{0.,-0.169031,0.,
1.18322}}
