Unable to compile R code into PDF document

I am trying to knit a document from RStudio to pdf, but I am getting the following error (attached). I have made a MWE that replicates my problem. This is on Windows 10 Pro with Rstudio 2022.12.0 and R 4.2.2

TexLive 2022, Pandoc and TinyTex have been installed.

Any help in getting this working would be appreciated.


a <- mtcars

g <- a %>% 
  aes(x = mpg,
      y = wt)+

See answer in documentation

You need to change the default PDF engine if you are using Unicode characters in your document
