I am having the same problems as discussed in this thread:
With Quarto, I have tried to use R to create two (ggplot) plots side by side and the options
#| label: plot_name #| layout-nrow: 2 #| column: page #| output: true
do not work. The result is always one plot and then another below that. I also tried to do a
column: screen-inset-shaded and
layout-nrow: 1 without success either. I also tried messing with the sizes of the plots, but that doesn't seem to have an effect.
