Thanks to

David Firth

who help with this question.

showData() from the relimp package works and shows the dataframe "" but scrolls rather weak with huge data.frames (15 000 x 120)

fix(...) is somewhat dangerous as you usually don't want to correct individual data but
get an overview

invisible(edit(...)) does the trick and scrolls with excellent speed even with huge dataframes
but not exactly "" (dates as negative or positive integer, minor problem).
