# [Bioc-devel] BiocStyle not acknowledging fig.wide=TRUE in knitr

Dear list,

I'm playing around with the BiocStyle aesthetics for my csaw user's guide, and it looks pretty good in general. However, setting fig.wide=TRUE doesn't seem to be respected by knitr during compilation. To give an example:

%%% Latex code start %%%

\documentclass{article}

<<style-knitr, eval=TRUE, echo=FALSE, results="asis">>=

BiocStyle::latex()

@

\bioctitle[Test]{Testing}

%% also: \bioctitle{Title used for both header and title page}

%% or... \title{Title used for both header and title page}

%%% End %%%

Running this with "R CMD Sweave --engine=knitr::knitr --pdf <filename>" gives me a TeX file. But setting "fig.wide=FALSE" in the testfig chunk and re-Sweaving gives me the exact same TeX file.

I would have expected something to manifest differently when I ask for a figure to be wide. in this case, it seems like it never becomes wide, regardless of how much I ask. Am I missing something?

Cheers,

Aaron

P.S. Running on BiocStyle 2.5.37.
