The cells_title() function is used to target the table title or subtitle when applying a footnote with tab_footnote() or adding custom style with tab_style(). The function is expressly used in each of those functions' locations argument.

cells_title(groups = c("title", "subtitle"))

## Arguments

groups We can either specify "title" or "subtitle" to target the title element or the subtitle element.

## Value

A list object of classes cells_title and location_cells.

## Details

When using any of the location helper functions with an appropriate function that has a locations argument, multiple locations can be targeted by enclosing several cells_*() helper functions in a list(). The following helper functions can be used to target cells (roughly in order from the top to the bottom of a table):

• cells_title(): targets the table title or the table subtitle depending on the value given to the groups argument ("title" or "subtitle").

• cells_stubhead(): targets the stubhead location, a cell of which is only available when there is a stub; a label in that location can be created by using the tab_stubhead() function.

• cells_column_spanners(): targets the spanner column labels, which appear above the column labels.

• cells_column_labels(): targets the column labels.

• cells_row_groups(): targets the row group labels in any available row groups using the groups argument.

• cells_stub(): targets row labels in the table stub using the rows argument.

• cells_body(): targets data cells in the table body using intersections of columns and rows.

• cells_summary(): targets summary cells in the table body using the groups argument and intersections of columns and rows.

• cells_grand_summary(): targets cells of the table's grand summary using intersections of columns and rows
