Experimental lifecycle Function converts a gtsummary object to a knitr_kable + kableExtra object. A user can use this function if they wish to add customized formatting available via knitr::kable and kableExtra. Note that gtsummary uses the standard markdown ** to bold headers, and they may need to be changed manually with kableExtra output.

as_kable_extra(
  x,
  include = everything(),
  return_calls = FALSE,
  strip_md_bold = TRUE,
  ...
)

Arguments

x
