I"ve tried a couple of code fonts that work nicely with
<- etc. to turn it into a arrow
But the new base R pipes
<| do not work in R code panes, but do work in strings and comments, which is different from the R console. Arrows do work in the code pane.
Example below using Cascadia Code https://github.com/microsoft/cascadia-code
I suspect its an RStudio issue as the symbol fonts work in the R console and comments/strings etc. I'm using 1.3.1
