4.7 Knitting your assignment to PDF

All assignments are to be submitted to Canvas as PDF documents.

As you learned in a previous tutorial, simply click on the “knit” button and select PDF. Your PDF file will adopt the same name as your markdown file, but it will have a “pdf” extension rather than an “Rmd” extension.

Once you have knitted your assignment to PDF, open up the PDF document, and verify that it looks correct, and be sure to check all your spelling, and that figures / tables are appropriately formatted etc…

If you need to fix something, close your PDF file, go back to your R Markdown document and do the edits there. Save, then knit again!
