I recently updated
Bookdown to the most recent version and am having trouble knitting individual chapters. In an earlier version, I was able to use a chapter as a "child" document and knit it using a separate "render_preview.Rmd" to create a single chapter in folder just for "previews." The file would be named "render_preview.pdf" and would contain whatever chapter I included in the
childs statement. Now when I do this, the entire book is knit to _main.pdf (but really it's only the chapter and section headings that appear), and I don't get the "render_preview.pdf" that I want with just a single chapter. Is there another way to zip off a chapter with the new version of Bookdown? Alternatively, how would I revert to the previous version?
I do realize that
preview_chapter does something like what I'm asking for, but it also includes all of the other chapter and section headings.
Also, I did work on a minimal example but am unable to upload the zipped folder. Hopefully my description is sufficient for now.
