I would like to export images from ggplot2 where the text is editable. I have tried pdf and svg, but when editing them in a vector editing software, the text are shapes and not editable as text. Is there a better format, device or setting that can be changed to allow exporting editable text in images?
Looking into this a bit, I see that the problem is showtext package.
This creates editable text:
library(ggplot2) p <- ggplot(iris,aes(Sepal.Length,Petal.Length))+ geom_point()+ geom_text(aes(label=Species))+ labs(title="Iris dataset")+ theme_bw() ggsave("iris.pdf",p)
When using a custom font using showtext, fonts are converted to shapes.
library(showtext) font_add_google("Lato") showtext_auto() p1 <- p+theme_bw(base_family = "Lato") ggsave("iris-showtext.pdf",p1)
