\begin{fullwidth} not working for highlighted code chunks #222

in the tufte handout I try to set fullwidth for a text block containing highlighted r-code like:

\section{Statistical Analysis:}
<<Stats, eval=TRUE>>=
binom.test(10, 121))

but this doesn't widen the block - it only centers it...

Is there a way around, or maybe it should be optimized internally?

Kind regards,

That is probably a bug of the framed package (; it does not work well with the fullwidth environment. You have two choices:

  1. redefine the kframe environment like

  2. use the listings package instead which is more robust (use render_listings() in your first chunk;

BTW, you can use three backticks to write a fenced code block; see

Interesting thing - if in tufte-handout I start fullwidth and in the enclosed text paragraphs there is italics markdown as in _italicword_ then \begin{fullwidth} and correspondingly the end too get escaped and do not work - i.e. appear in the document verbatim. However if I remove underscore from the paragraphs between fullwidth, then it works very nicely.
