I'm in the process of writing a book about data analysis. Currently using the R and the Bookdown package. I'm currently using your book "Authoring books and technical with R markdown" as a guide. Love it by the way!
I have some experience with LateX and Overleaf, but I'm starting to like R and the bookdown package more.
However, I encounter some problems related to formatting, especially the pdf document output.
I'm currently using the big example found in " bookdown: Authoring Books and Technical Documents with R Markdown" by Yihui as a default template.
Here are my questions:
How do I customize all the headings in the table of contents to the Danish language? Aswell as having the "Chapter 1" to render as "Kapitel 1, Kapitel 2 etc." in the pdf output.
How do I adjust pagenumbering. Running the output in pdf format shows that pagenumbering starts on the page with my table of contents. Basically I want to have the first pagenumber to show on the next page, where my abstract starts.
How do i configure the margins for the entire document? The function is called "equal margins" in Microsoft Word. It's doable with LateX and Overleaf engine. But for some reason I get an error in the console when I type the code in the Yaml.
Is it possible to create a full-sized book coverpage?
If you know the answers, please redirect me to some source code. I can't send you the code unfortunately because I had to reinstall R. Guess I played too much with all the different settings lol. Lets just say I managed to destroy the functionality of R lol.
I hope you can help
