Hi Marc,

At the risk of sounding silly, did you follow the instructions in the README for the mathjaxr package? https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/mathjaxr/readme/README.html

I've never used it myself, but I can see about 30 packages on CRAN that reverse-import mathjaxr. I spot checked some of them, and they all passed the CRAN checks.

Of course, you may very well be using Mathjax differently than them, in which case perhaps this issue should be brought up to the mathjaxr package maintainer.

I am about to sumbmit an R package.

It passed the
"R CMD check /package... --as-cran --no-manual"
but not the
"R CMD check /package... --as-cran".

Our way of presenting mathematical equations by using the mathjaxr package seems to be not supported.
As a result, building pdf fails automatically.

We have already been aware of that and would like to submit the
package manual pdf separately.

How can this be done?
Can our submission work without the rd to pdf process?
Or is there a way to include the mathjaxr style for the texing?

Thank you in advance,
