Question: How to specify transcript_ids in makeTxDbFromUCSC function in GenomicFeatures package?

I would like to create a TxDb object restricted to only a specific set of transcripts. However, when I set the transcript_ids, it doesn't appear to have what I assumed would be the intended effect. Instead of the TxDb object containing only with information for the given transcript, it appears to return everything.

Am I specifying the transcript_ids incorrectly? Or is there a better way to do this?

Any advice is appreciated!

Is there a particular reason that installing the TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg19.knownGene and then using just the transcripts you care about isn't sufficient?

I intend to use the reduced TxDB object as input to the CHIPseeker package via:

ChIPseeker::annotatePeak(peaks, tssRegion=c(-3000, 3000), assignGenomicAnnotation=TRUE, TxDb=newTxDb)​

where newTxDb only contains my genes of interest. I know the annotatePeak will let me input a GRanges object as the TxDb, but then it is unable to assignGenomicAnnotation and I would like the information about intron, exon, UTR, etc.
