I scanned various tables and realized that misalignments is not "quite
often" as I remembered. Besides, some of them only affect the Turkish
translation. Here is a small report:
1)-The "confidence intervals for coefficients" window from the
analysis menu can use some formatting. The headers can be misaligned
and the decimal dots in the upper and lower values columns are not
2)-For the forecasts window, open Greene7_8, run an ols with G as the
dependent and no independents (just intercept). Select forecasts and
just click OK. The dashes between the lower and upper values are
3)- In the normality of residual window, "interval midpt
frequency rel. cum." look a little misaligned.
4)- In the Mahalanobis distances window, the chosen variables are
listed vertically which gives the impression of a misaligned table
when there is only one variable chosen. Could be better if the
variables are listed horizontally as: "Mahalanobis distances from the
centroid using the variables: X, Y, Z, ..." and the table has headers.
5)- The spectrum window can sometimes look a bit messy. For example,
compare the sample periodograms (not log scaled) for CAN and D1 for
the AWM dataset.
6)- The Turkish for range is "aralık" and mean is "ortalama." Because
of the difference in the number of letters, the range-mean table looks
misaligned in Turkish.
(Also, please check the range-mean graph for abdata. When the value is
too big (observation 14), it causes a small misalignment.)
7)- It is similar for the "display actual, fitted, residual" window.
In Turkish, fitted is "yakistirilan" which is considerably longer and
creates a problem in this table.
8)- The misalignment in cross correlogram was my fault in the Turkish
translation, which is fixed now.
9)- In the "display values" and the forecasts windows, "obs" (the
title for the observations column) is hard coded and needs to be
10)- A bug: Open abdata, run an ols regression with IND as the
dependent variable. Choose "influential observations," and the program

Could you give an example of that, please? (Using gretl 1.7.8 or
