Converting a bookdown document to MS Word document


Our local publisher requested that we convert our book written in bookdown to MS Word. Unfortunately, they do not accept Latex.

I checked on the web and found this issue #127 Export into Word file as single document. But that was in 2016 and I wonder if there has been any recent discussion on converting a bookdown document to MS Word? Is there any possibility at all to do so?


You can try this package out -
As it says in README, it's very experimental, but no harm in trying, I guess.

I will check the package and will get back with the result


You can have a look at the official documentation here:

The key point is to provide a word template with your styles.

All is done via pandoc. So you might also look at it for MD to word extra options.
