RStudio Visual Markdown Editing: Maintain raw R Markdown formatting?

Hi, I have been playing with the visual markdown editing mode in RStudio, which in principle is a great idea. I like to write my raw plain text RMarkdown with lots of whitespace, and other specific formatting. Whenever I move to Visual Markdown Editing mode in RStudio, the document is saved with enforced pandoc styling of the R Markdown format.

I would like to use the Visual Markdown Editing mode, but maintain my own style of R Markdown formatting. Is there an option I have missed that allows the plain text R Markdown file to remain formatted as I have written it?

I have tried the canonical: true but this still enforces white spacing and bullet formatting (amongst other things) - I want an option to maintain the raw R Markdown exactly as I have written it. Is this possible?
