Function converts a gtsummary object to a flextable object. A user can use this function if they wish to add customized formatting available via the flextable functions. The flextable output is particularly useful when combined with R markdown with Word output, since the gt package does not support Word.

as_flex_table(
  x,
  include = everything(),
  return_calls = FALSE,
  strip_md_bold = NULL
)

Arguments

x

Object created by a function from the gtsummary package (e.g. tbl_summary or tbl_regression)

include

Commands to include in output. Input may be a vector of quoted or unquoted names. tidyselect and gtsummary select helper functions are also accepted. Default is everything().

return_calls

Logical. Default is FALSE. If TRUE, the calls are returned as a list of expressions.

strip_md_bold

DEPRECATED

Value

A flextable object
