To align pictures to the top in a table-mode some changes have been made in this file /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/amacart/table.phtml.
Now it is possible to adjust height of the description block (line 33 height:60px was added).
To make 2 products per row in a table-mode the next condition should be changed:
<?php if ($i%3!=0): ?> <td width=“2%”></td> <?php else: ?>
It allows to add new line after every second product.
