Huxtables can be converted to flextable::flextable() objects, for use in Word and Powerpoint documents.

as_flextable(x, ...)

# S3 method for huxtable
as_flextable(x, colnames_to_header = FALSE, ...)

## Arguments

x A huxtable. Not used. Use huxtable column names as the header. If FALSE, the flextable will contain only a body and no header.

## Value

an object of class flextable.

## Details

With recent versions of "flextable" and Pandoc, huxtables can be automatically outputted from rmarkdown word_document and/or powerpoint_presentation documents. (Powerpoint presentations require pandoc version >= 2.4.0.)

Properties are supported, with the following exceptions:

• Rotation of 0, 90 or 270 is supported.

• Non-numeric widths and heights are not supported. Table heights are treated as a proportion of 9 inches; table widths are treated as a proportion of 6 inches. So e.g. height(ht) <- 0.5 will give a height of 4.5 inches.

• Table wrap and table position are not supported.

• Border style "double" is not supported and becomes "solid".

• Captions are supported with recent versions of flextable, but not caption_pos() or caption_width().

## Challenge

Try to say as_flextable.huxtable ten times without pausing.

## Examples

ht <- hux(a = 1:3, b = 1:3)
ft <- as_flextable(ht)
if (FALSE) {
