Arguments

toc, number_sections, fig_caption, pandoc_args

See rmarkdown::pdf_document, or the documentation of the base_format function.

...

Other arguments to be passed to base_format.

base_format

An output format function to be used as the base format.

toc_unnumbered

Whether to add unnumbered headers to the table of contents.

toc_appendix

Whether to add the appendix to the table of contents.

toc_bib

Whether to add the bibliography section to the table of contents.

quote_footer

If a character vector of length 2 and the quote footer starts with three dashes (---), quote_footer[1] will be prepended to the footer, and quote_footer[2] will be appended; if NULL, the quote footer will not be processed.

highlight_bw

Whether to convert colors for syntax highlighting to black-and-white (grayscale).

Details

This function is based on rmarkdown::pdf_document (by default) with better default arguments. You can also change the default format to other LaTeX/PDF format functions using the base_format argument.

The global R option bookdown.post.latex can be set to a function to post-process the LaTeX output. This function takes the character vector of the LaTeX output as its input argument, and should return a character vector to be written to the ‘.tex’ output file. This gives you full power to post-process the LaTeX output.

Note

This output format can only be used with render_book().
