Yes. That's done by default by "R CMD build / check" on my Mac but
not on Linux nor Windows 10. I'm not sure, but I think this problem is
fairly recent: I think that "R CMD build / check" on Mac used to run
like on Linux and Win10 without creating these huge PDF and HTML files
from vignettes. If it's only the figures, I would naively think there
should be an option to make sure that the figures were coded in svg so
it wouldn't take up as much space. Or, failing that, if the problem is
the figures, I can code it so the figures don't plot unless people run
them manually. Or maybe I shouldn't be trying to distribute vignettes
Thanks for the reply.
