Markdown Question

How to add whitespace to an RMarkdown document?

Is there a way to do it by adding latex code in the text or does the solution lie in (R)Markdown?

No sign of a solution here: http://rmarkdown.rstudio.com/pdf_document_format.html

At present I'm bodging a solution by adding my

monospace
signature to the bottom of the 1st page, to force the next section to start on page 2: https://github.com/Robinlovelace/Creating-maps-in-R/blob/master/intro-spatial-rl.pdf

Answer

You can use latex inside your Rmd file. To have a page break, just add \newpage.

example.Rmd

Title
====================

This is a test Rmd document. 

\newpage

Second page
====================

This text is on the second page

You make a pdf using render("example.Rmd", output_format='pdf_document')

Hope it helps,
