R: Set Font Based on Output Device
Ever had a troublesome font in R that doesn’t want to render to
ggplot in RStudio, but will render just fine in
knitr? Do you use
extrafont but sometimes it just doesn’t work? Trying to look like Tufte’s Visual Display of Quantitative Information but ETBembo is being uncooperative? Try setting your font (globally) to this.
myfont <- ifelse(is.null(knitr::opts_knit$get("rmarkdown.pandoc.to")), "serif", "ETBembo")
serif if the code is being rendered in anything but
knitr. If it is being rendered by
knitr, say, by pressing the “Knit” button in RStudio, then it sets it to ETBembo.
I found it on StackOverflow.
