Have you ever been frustrated about having to manually add markdown tags to your Rmd? If you are an avid markdown user, no doubt you’ve been complaining about what should be an easy task: adding bold, creating lists, urls and the like.
I know I am frustrated nearly everyday typing '**' over and over again.
Finally, there is a cure - it is called remedy. It is a new package that is used like other add-ins into RStudio. I now bold a word or words by simply typing 'Control + Shift + b'. This is so much faster. There are lots of formatting options, so check it out now and start saving time!
