Console Size

Is there a way to change the number of lines available in the console in RStudio? It appears that it does not adopt custom console sizes in R. Thanks for any help you can provide. Thanks.

Jonathan,

You can actually fully customize the size of each pane. If you place your cursor between the source and the console it will turn into arrows indicating that you can move it and adjust the size. This also works between the right and left sections of the application too.

Let me know if that does the trick!

I was thinking more of the max number of lines that can be displayed inside
the console window. I think in regular R it would be the buffer character
setting and the buffer lines setting. It appears that RStudio can display
just over 2000 lines. I have a function that print output from the Census
X12 program (a DOS program) to the console. Sometimes it is quite lengthy.

By the way, I just want to let you guys know that I have only been using
RStudio for a couple of weeks and I LOVE it. It is a really fabulous
program. Thanks for your help.

I had same problem of ploting sometimes more info in the console than the max number of lines, still not in Rstuido at least since 2 years, i discovered this limitation. It would be great that the max number of lines to print in the console could be adjusted in the options. THANKS A LOT AND VERY GRATEFUL FOR THE NICE SOFTWARE YOU PROVIDE!!

Hi, I have the same issue, has there been any progress made on increasing the number of lines that the console output can display?

 

Many thanks, Alistair
