This morning when I started up Rstudio (after having used it for years) it showed only a black screen. This did not resolve upon restart so I uninstalled Rstudio then reinstalled.
With the reinstallation I see a somewhat normal screen, but am unable to select text in the scripting window. The cursor is there but it scans over the text.
I reinstalled Rstudio for Bionic twice, then tried instead for Xenial. All reproduced the same problem
Has someone else seen this problem? I can find no other documentation of someone who cannot highlight and copy text in the scripting window. This does not happen in the Console.
Thanks in advance
