To generate a Word document from R Markdown, you can use the output format
word_document. If you want to include cross-references in the document, you may consider the output format
bookdown::word_document2, as mentioned in Section 4.7.
--- output: word_document: default bookdown::word_document2: default # for cross-references ---
From our experience, the most frequently asked questions about Word output are:
How can I apply a custom Word template to the document?
How can I incorporate changes made in Word in the original R Markdown document?
How can I style individual document elements?
We will address these questions in this chapter.
