display resolution error RStudio


I'm not sure if this is RStudio or my Mac, but it only appears in RStudio and not in other applications. After doing something that changes the screen resolution (e.g. watching a movie, playing a game) the resolution in RStudio changes after exiting the previous acitivity. To resolve it I have to manually reduce the resolution then increase it again.

Is this a "bug" in RStudio or does it have to do with some of my settings?


I think it will be helpful if you can clarify some details about your system:

  • RStudio Edition: (Desktop or Server)
  • RStudio Version:
  • OS Version:

Is this happening on your primary display, or on a secondary monitor? What's your display's native resolution?


Yes, of course :slight_smile:

RStudio desktop - Version 1.2.1030
Mojave 10.14.1
iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017) - I've got the resolution set to the highest scale (it says "looks like 3200 x 1800")
