Hi Kenneth,

I was unable to reproduce the issue that you described in your original
email with a different package (without access to your package).

I ran `devtools::build_vignettes` on the `RaggedExperiment` package
and the vignettes were built without a problem (with pandoc installed):

 > devtools::build_vignettes()
Building RaggedExperiment vignettes
Moving RaggedExperiment.html, RaggedExperiment.R to inst/doc/
Copying RaggedExperiment.Rmd to inst/doc/

Note that the Rmd file was only copied from the vignettes directory.

*But*, I wouldn't usually build vignettes this way for testing. I think 
you want to use the "knit"
button in RStudio (keyboard shortcut: ctrl + shift + K) to be able to 
see the rendered doc.
Go to 'Help' > 'Keyboard shortcuts help' to look for the appropriate 
shortcut if you are
not using Linux.

Also, I was not able to find the `add_vignette` function. I'm not sure where
you are getting this function from.

PS. I'm using Rdevel 3.5.0 (r74109) and devtools pkg version 1.13.5 on 
Ubuntu 16.04.
