The main reason I tried to test some of the functionality that is typically display outside the R console, such as plotting and ?topic (and honestly, I did not realize from the start that alt+f1 was meant to fully replace traditional ways). Iīd really like to use R outside the terminal, but it was the only I way I got it to work from within Komodo. Both R.app and R64.app did not work. All I get when I run R is the open -a mydirectory/R64.app message at the bottom and then after a couple of seconds I get the "Ready" message. No R pops up, because it obviously does not start.

open -a mydirectory/R64.app

So, is R64.app located in "mydirectory"? If not, then, you know why it does not work.

> Running R from the terminal worked, but the Command output inside Komodo appeared to have problems, when I run about 100 lines of code or display data.frames with a couple of hundred rows. Is there a way to move the command output around, i.e. relocate the window or even open it in another window? That would be really helpful particularly if you work on two screens.

Well, what you are asking is having a R console displayed in a separate window that you could place on your second screen... and you have it: it is your terminal window where R is running.

Best,

Philippe

There is a much better mechanism: place your cursor on a word (the 'topic' in ?topic) and hit Alt-F1, and you got the corresponding help page displayed. It is much more natural to type the name of your function, then Alt-F1 to see the man page, than to type ?myfun, then move back to eliminate '?', move forward and continue typing your code, isn't it? Also try Alt-Shift-F1 for a better alternative to ??topic from within SciViews-K / Komodo.
