Try evaluating r3 with Using ColumnAlignments -> Center and we find * nothing above the 1 in r2; * the 1 in r1 above the 2 in r2; * the 2 in r1 above the 3 in r2; * the 3 in r1 above the 4 in r2; * nothing above the 5 in r2. In other words, ColumnAlignments -> Center causes r1 and r2 to be *centered*, as we would expect. The challenge is to (more-or-less) left-align r1 over r2, such that: * the 1 in r1 will be above the 1 in r2. (Think of r1 and r2 as two different lines of symbolic material to be left-aligned in r3, under the condition that the leftmost numbers in each should align exactly, ignoring the start-parenthesis in r1 and the overbracket in r2.) Is this possible? Trevor.
