I am knitting to powerpoint using rmarkdown. I am trying to remove the spacing between the subtitle and the author within the title slide. Here is the following code:
--- title: "Untitled" subtitle: "subtitle" author: "author" date: "7/10/2019" output: powerpoint_presentation ---
Here is the screenshot from the powerpoint output:
You can see that the subtitle and the author YAML fields both map to the same textbox.
I ended up creating a custom ppt template and playing around with the sizing of the allowable verticle spacing for the subtitle field, but I did not have any luck on changing removing the spacing. I was able to decrease the font size, which subsequently decreased the spacing, but it is not exactly what I was hoping to do.
So my question is: Is there a way to remove/change the spacing between the subtitle and the author for the title slide within the YAML header?
