Create native charts for 'Microsoft PowerPoint' and 'Microsoft Word' documents. These can then be edited and annotated. Functions are provided to let users create charts, modify and format their content. The chart's underlying data is automatically saved within the 'Word' document or 'PowerPoint' presentation. It extends package 'officer' that does not contain any feature for 'Microsoft' native charts production.
mschart package provides a framework for easily create charts for
‘Microsoft PowerPoint’ documents. It has to be used with package
officer that will produce the
charts in new or existing PowerPoint or Word documents.
The user documentation can be read here.
Functions you should be aware of are documented here.
This is a basic example which shows you how to create a line chart.
library(mschart)library(officer)linec <- ms_linechart(data = iris, x = "Sepal.Length",y = "Sepal.Width", group = "Species")linec <- chart_ax_y(linec, num_fmt = "0.00", rotation = -90)
Then use package
officer to send the object as a chart.
doc <- read_pptx()doc <- add_slide(doc, layout = "Title and Content", master = "Office Theme")doc <- ph_with_chart(doc, chart = linec)print(doc, target = "example.pptx")
At any moment, you can type
print(your_chart, preview = TRUE) to
preview the chart in a temporary PowerPoint file. This requires to have
a PowerPoint Viewer installed on the machine.

When you file a bug report, please spend some time making it easy for me to follow and reproduce. The more time you spend on making the bug report coherent, the more time I can dedicate to investigate the bug as opposed to the bug report.
A great way to start is to contribute an example or improve the documentation.
