# TableForm behavior change

In an older version NoteBook, I was able to specify some options for TableForm, which enabled the printing of an expression in a simple fashion:

MyExpression//TableForm


I used this:

optsinit1 := SetOptions[TableForm,
TableAlignments -> Left,
TableSpacing -> 1]


Before using TableForm I would evaluate optsinit1:

optsinit1;

MyExpression//TableForm


In V9Ii have to issue

TableForm[MyExpression,optsinit1]


to get the previous behavior.

I prefer the old behavior. Any hints on how this is done?

Note that when I issue Options[TableForm] the return is

{TableAlignments -> Left, TableDepth -> \[Infinity],
TableDirections -> Column,

What version were you using that gave you the "correct" behavior? (Run SystemInformation["Small"], please.) –  rcollyer Apr 24 '13 at 19:33
