By default, a table header added to a gt table has center alignment for both the title and the subtitle elements. This function allows us to easily set the horizontal alignment of the title and subtitle to the left or right by using the "align" argument. This function serves as a convenient shortcut for <gt_tbl> %>% tab_options(heading.align = <align>).

opt_align_table_header(data, align = c("left", "center", "right"))

Arguments

data

A table object that is created using the gt() function.

align

The alignment of the title and subtitle elements in the table header. Options are "left" (the default), "center", or "right".

Value

An object of class gt_tbl.
