The new version of my customLayout package is on CRAN. It now supports working with PowerPoint slides using layouts created in R. For more information please read the vignette here.

It also extends the idea of adjusting the font size for the flextables (see this post) - check the phl_adjust_table function.

I also created a simple roadmap which describes my next steps. Please note that this package is still under development. I guided myself with the idea from http://wiki.c2.com/?MakeItWorkMakeItRightMakeItFast - I make it work, but now there’s time to make it right;)

Any feedback is welcome:)
