Re: [R] odfWeave: in multi-page plots only last page appears in document

Another option, if you want them in separate figures, is to write a loop that generates the image file, saves it to the file system, and use odfInsertPlot to put the file into the document.

This might work better if you have an unknown number of images that you want to insert.

If you ran that code outside ODFWeave, you'd only get one plot, so why would you expect to get more within ODFWeave?

for (i in 1:3) {

You need to add some sort of par() command, or use layout(), to create a single plot that contains all three of the plots created by the loop.

for (i in 1:3) {

    plot(1,1, main=paste('Plot',i))
for example.

Or, if you want ODFWeave to handle placement, then you need to break that into three separate plots.
