By default, the HTML is in a ‘paged’ format, meaning it is suitable for printing. If you want unpaged HTML, set the paper_size parameter on create_report() to ‘none’.

  • Made output_type parameter case insensitive.
  • Added standard_eval parameter to define(), spanning_header(), and column_defaults() functions. These parameters will replace curly brace escape on those functions. Curly brace escape will remain active for backward compatibility, but is no longer documented.
