I tried compiling an old report that had been generated under the default PDF output for a new R Markdown document (last knit in February 2020). The formatting of the title, author, and date are now all different in undesirable ways (size, line spacing, etc.). Does anyone have information on this?
The convenience of choosing a default template for simple analytical reports was one of the benefits of this workflow, but changes to defaults that cannot be easily modified are pretty frustrating. I'm sure there are ways to edit the template but that completely defeats the simplicity of a default option.
