I am using the latest version of RStudio and R Markdown as by 2021-03-27, on Windows 10. My Pandoc is of version 2.11.2.
I added the line
smart: false to the front matter of my rmd file inside the indented section following
html_document:, but the output does not change, as smart punctuation is still applied to what was ASCII punctuations in the original file. I tried using the 'output options' GUI, deselecting the option
Use smart puntuation and then selecting it again, but it did nothing but changing those
smart: no in the front matter, the first few lines of the knit message read:
"C:/Program Files/RStudio/bin/pandoc/pandoc" +RTS -K512m -RTS ttt.utf8.md --to html4 --from markdown+autolink_bare_uris+tex_math_single_backslash --output ttt.html
-smart is not found in the message. It is supposed to be following
markdown as an extension, which worked well and disabled smart punctuation when I tried using pandoc with command lines:
pandoc smart.md -f markdown-smart -t html -o smart.html
Could it be a bug, or is there something wrong with my configuration? I'd appreciate any help.
