Here's an org-mode table with some unicode math characters in it:

Note that the columns don't align.

I can manually fix the issue by inserting literal tab characters after each character via ctrl-q TAB:

It would be nice to have a command that did this, instead of having to manually add sufficient tab characters to each cell.

Is there a good way to approach this in elisp?

    Do you use a somehow special font ? For me, simply hitting TAB in each line correctly aligns the columns. – JeanPierre Jul 15 '19 at 6:56
  • @JeanPierre Very interesting that they align for you! I'm using Emacs on Windows. I have the following in my init file: (set-face-attribute 'default nil :family "Consolas" :height 100). – dharmatech Jul 15 '19 at 8:34
