Bug in setting GUI to SDI mode?

michael watson (IAH-C)
Hi

I did a google search on this and came up with nothing.

OK, in the latest release of R for windows, I want to change the gui to
SDI mode.  

Edit -> GUI preferences
Choose SDI
Apply

I get the message about properties not being able to be changed on a
running console, and that I need to save.

So I click Save, and am met with a "Save As" dialogue box with the
default file called Rconsole, the file type as "All files".  I have no
idea where I actually have to save this.

I saved it in C:\Program File\R\2.2.1 anyway, restarted the console, and
SDI mode was not set.

I realiuse I can use the --sdi option on the command line, but I want to
know how to make this work through the GUI

Any help?

Thanks
Mick

See the ?Rconsole man page.  The search is somewhat complicated; it's up
to you to decide whether you want the setting to apply just to your user
(it should be in the R_USER directory), or be the default for all users
(it should be in the R_HOME/etc directory).  For me, the default
location for saving is the R_USER directory; I suspect it's the same
default for you, but I haven't actually checked the code.

So, what's the "bug"? You need to save in

$R_HOME\etc

where $R_HOME is the directory where you have R installed. (Your example
directory above seems odd - is it a typo?).

BTW, this is in the rw-FAQ 5.2. Or you can read ?Rconsole.

HTH,

You were asked (in the posting guide) to read the R documentation, and
this _is_ in the rw-FAQ and also in ?Rconsole.

Feature request in setting GUI to SDI mode?

Dirk Eddelbuettel

R looks for Rconsole in $HOME as well. I don't like to cluster $HOME with
visible files, so I was wondering if R could also look for

        $HOME/.Rconsole

to hide Rconsole in $HOME. That would be the best of both worlds.

Thanks, Dirk
