Getting help

There are two main places to get help:

  1. The RStudio community is a friendly place to ask any questions about rmarkdown and the R Markdown family of packages. Use tag tufte in your post.

  2. Stack Overflow is a great source of answers to common rmarkdown questions. It is also a great place to get help, once you have created a reproducible example that illustrates your problem.
