The goal of roxygen2md is to replace Rd syntax with Markdown in your package's roxygen2 documentation. Currently, the following substitutions are carried out:

Call roxygen2md::roxygen2md() in your package's directory, or navigate to "Tools/Addins/Rd to Markdown" in RStudio.

More to come. The substitutions are not completely safe, please carefully examine the results!

Let me know if this works with your documentation.

If you are using RStudio, simply choose the item "Rd to Markdown" from your "Addins" menu.
