I had not but now have. However, for some reason that I cannot figure  
out, the vertical space that \vphantom occupies is not quite the same  
as the vertical space that its argument occupies.

What I have is a 25 x 5 table for the students to place their  
multiple choice answers in with, just above, an instruction to that  

With a boolean, I can have that 25 x 5 table filled in with the  
answers to create a "key" for the instructor but wanted not to have  
the instructions above. But the vphantom of these instructions is a  
bit shorter than the instructions themselves.

So, I just put \vspace{9.3mm} instead and that is that.

But not very elegant.

Grateful regards
