I am trying to get the figure preview in an R Markdown document to display the same as the knitted version and the ggsave version. I need to play around with some label positions so I need to re-run the plotting code many times to get the right settings. I could look at the saved file but it would be faster to use the preview inside R Studio.
Unfortunately, when I set the
fig.height options, the preview does not respect these options. It resizes the figure to fill the device size. Is there a way to get the preview in R Studio to be identical to the knitted version? Here's a minimum working example with screenshots to show the issue:
The knitted and ggsave versions do not appear the same. I can't upload more than one image as a new user.
