I am trying to produce a report listing names. Some of the names are in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language. I am using xelatex engine. I cannot produce the names in Korean from RStudio if I render them in PDF. However, the names appear fine when knitting to DOC and HTML format.
While searching for a solution, I came across the post at http://yufree.github.io/blog/2014/07/21/rmd-to-pdf.html and https://github.com/yufree/democode/tree/master/cjk.
I followed thru with the suggestion and tried to use the example Korean.rmd (on Git), but I failed to make it work. I am not getting any warnings or errors in the RStudio render console.
*/usr/local/bin/pandoc +RTS -K512m -RTS Kr.knit.md --to latex --from markdown+autolink_bare_uris+tex_math_single_backslash --output Kr.tex --lua-filter /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/4.1/Resources/library/rmarkdown/rmarkdown/lua/pagebreak.lua --lua-filter /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/4.1/Resources/library/rmarkdown/rmarkdown/lua/latex-div.lua --self-contained --highlight-style tango --pdf-engine xelatex --variable graphics --include-in-header /var/folders/l9/z4zg58wj35z_s0pxd9fnrgn00000gn/T//Rtmp7inWDf/rmarkdown-str24875729cdae.html --variable 'geometry:margin=1in' *
processing file: Kr.Rmd
output file: Kr.knit.md
Output created: Kr.pdf
The resulting Kr.pdf does not show the Korean text when loaded in Acrobat DC. However, the TOC shows the heading in Korean fine. What am I doing wrong? Please note I am not familiar with LaTex and Pandoc.
Following info is returned by RStudio sessionInfo() call.
R version 4.1.2 (2021-11-01)
Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin17.0 (64-bit)
Running under: macOS Monterey 12.2.1
I have a similar setup on a Windows computer which also exhibits the same PDF rendering problem.
Any help or link to resources will be much appreciated.
