Pandoc Markdown To Pdf


I updated pandoc-citeproc to its latest version and after that I started to receive the following error message:

Pandoc-citeproc by jgm - Library and executable for using citeproc with pandoc. Quite the same Wikipedia. An Emacs mode for interacting with Pandoc. Pandoc -pdf-engine=xelatex -o main.pdf. Make sure your text editor supports the UTF-8 encoding. .of Pandoc::Elements and further processed with Pandoc to convert it to other document formats (HTML, Markdown, LaTeX, PDF, EPUB, docx, ODT, man.

Regardless of the output type and even without references in the document, I get this error and the Rstudio preview is not generated. To view the generated document I have to open the index file in the browser and go giving F5 as I'm updating the document.

Pandoc Pdf Template

If I insert references the document is neither generated.

I searched in the AUR repository for other packages, uninstalled and re-installed pandoc-citeproc, but nothing solved.


How can I fix this?

  • Define axis dimensions manually in ggplot in R

    When creating figures using ggplot2 in R, the options to finetune your plots seem to be endless. But one thing I didn't encounter yet, is the following: Is it possible to manually specify the length (i.e., dimensions) of the axes of a plot.

    For example: let's take the diamonds dataset from ggplot2


    Is it possible to specify that the length, for example of the x-axis, should be 5cm?

    I am aware that using ggsave the dimensions of the entire plot can be specified, but is it also possible to specify dimensions of axes?

  • Replace latex with r strings using gsub

    I would like to find and replace tabular instances by tabularx. I tried with gsub but it seems to enter me into a world of escaping pain. Following other questions and answers I find fixed=TRUE which is the best I so far have. The code snippet below almost works, B is unrecognized. If I escape it twice I get BEGIN as output!

    I'm using BEGIN as my test to see what is happening. This is before I get to tackling the question of what goes on in the brackets {rl} {ll} {rrl} etc. Ideally I'm looking for a regex that would output:

    That is the final column is replaced by X.

  • gganimate map, transition by quarter

    I am trying to build a map that animates the BLS quarterly employment data with transitions that happen by quarter. I have joined the employment data, selected for the third month of employment with map data from urmanmapr. It has already been filted down to the private sector's own code. Here's what it looks like now:

    Here's the code that makes a static map for the most recent quater:

    And the resulting map:

    But when I add in the other dates, and try to make an animation with this code it doesn't work.

    I get the following error:

    If it helps I made the yearqtr column like this:

    Any thoughts here would be appreciated.

  • Why capabilities() are not the same between R from the console and RStudio?

    I am trying to understand why capabilities() are not the same between R running in the console and RStudio despite that both use the same R binaries.

    In the console:

    In RStudio:

    I only have 1 R installation:

  • I am not able to load the image in the terminal in Rstudio

    I have few .DCM files which i want to process. i am trying to extracxt the image in jpeg format from the following code. i can see the image in the plot section. but i am not able to save it via terminal.can you give some insight how i can proceed further. and i will be glad if you can tell why its output is not piping out in the 'im1'

  • Rscript sees a different R version than the one installed

    I am trying to call an R script from inside Python however in the 1st line of the R script I am calling the 'lubridate' library which gives me the following error

    After calling .libPaths() in Rstudio I find that the library directories are :

    However, I put the print(.libPaths()) command at the first line of my R script and then run Rscript from inside my Python code, and the path that gives me is the following:

    It seems that the .libPaths() sees different library directories when called from Rstudio and when called from inside Python withe the Rscript command.

    Any advice here, how I could make it look to the right library location?

  • Is there a way to use `removetags` in `pandoc`?

    I have the following pandoc command that I use to generate my pdf from notebooks.

    It works fine. However, I'd like to omit some cells from the notebook. jupyter nbconvert has the option --TagRemovePreprocessor.remove_cell_tags={'omit'}. Is there a way to add that to pandoc? or, alternatively, how would the previous command look like using jupyter nbconvert?

  • How to convert from Word to Markdown with Front Matter with pandoc

    I want to convert a Word document to Markdown, so I can use the result with Jekyll.

    This works partially:

    However, pandoc doesn't generate a (YAML) Front Matter block, and I can't find a command line option to do this. Is this possible at all, or is it only available for Latex or other formats?

  • Removing page numbers from PDF created using knitr from a moderncv template

    This question covers R Studio, pandoc and also LaTeX I suppose. The following is what my YAML looks like in R Studio:

    In the footer, the page number is displayed. People with a similar problem have fixed this by changing the LaTeX preamble, but I have no such file, instead I have a collection of one .cls and several .sty files. Which of these would I need to change in order to suppress page numbering? Or is it possible to add pandoc args for this in the preamble?

  • Change 'References' by 'Bibliography' in Bookdown (gitbook)

    I would like to change the name of the section 'References' to something else. I am using the R Studio Bookdown template:

    This produces a subsection called 'References' at the end of the chapter. I tried to change this e.g. by adding

    to the _bookdown.yml - without success. I couldn't find an answer for this on stackoverflow.

  • Safari - AppleScript does not move to the next section of a bookdown online book

    I am writing a script to print a section of a bookdownonline book as PDF, then move to the next section, and so on.

    The print part works (the key codes are from this page):


    Now that I have printed the current section and I am back on Safari, I can click manually on the right arrow and move to the next section, but I can't manage to have the script to do that.

    I have tried to add the following to the script above:

    Or even to 'reopen' Safari, but nothing happens.

    How can I have AppleScript 'turn the page' and move to the next section?

    Also, I welcome suggestions to improve the script! I wonder if it would be easy to avoid repeating 'tab' 15 times. I have looked at the Accessibility Inspector and found that 'PDF' in the print menu corresponds to NSPopUpButtonCell. I have tried to use select NSPopUpButtonCell of its sheet but it did not work.

  • How to reference a plot that is displayed later with bookdown?

    This section of the R Markdown Cookbook shows how to create a plot and to display it later in the document:

    The problem I have is that I can't reference this plot in the text. See the following code and output:

    Note that if I display the plot immediately, the reference works well:

    How can display the plot later but still be able to reference it? I know that I could simply move the chunk where I want the plot to appear but this is not ideal in my case.

  • Pandoc citeproc bibliography entries sorting follows the order of entries in bib file

    When I convert the markdown file to pdf the order of references in the bibliography is the same as in the .bib file. As a result, the references in the text appear in the wrong order. As a result, I can have in the text sentences like ... reported in [2] after [1] ... while I would like the references to be sorted in the bibliography as they appear in the text, as it would be using unsrt.bib.

    The question is: how do I achieve sorting of entries in the bibliography section in order of their appearance in the text?

    MWE, compiled using pandoc -C -f markdown -o testing.pdf


    The output

    Changing the order of @article's in test.bib results in the desired output: The first reference [1] the second reference [2].

    I am using the aps.csl taken from zotero style repository:

  • How to change appearance of reference citation in output file with pandoc-citeproc

    When I execute the following command in pandoc,

    If the includes, for example, @ref1 @ref2 in a sentence sequentially, the output file (in this case, docx) looks like [1] [2]. My preference is [1-2]. If the number of references is serial, I wish the pandoc using a hyphen. I wonder if there is an additional filter to implement this.

  • Pandoc-citeproc isn't showing 'p. ' only the page number

    Recently I've discovered the great pandoc-citeproc filter for adding literature sources to markdown documents -- in order to convert them to PDFs with bibliographic references. However, I would prefer to avoid the substitution of 'p. '.

    E.g.: When citing @einstein1934 [p. 21] this is converted to:

    • Einstein (1934, 21) rather then,
    • Einstein (1934, p. 21) my preference.

    The documentation (see 24. Markdown citations) seems not to specify how to escape this behaviour in the examples.
