“Download as PNG” of plotly does not work in RStudio

plotly

#1

Hello I would like to be able to download as png the plot that I created in this shiny app. When Im trying to use the default plotly otion to download the file I take a file named "AAAAAAAAAAAA" which is incorrect. Is this happening due to the rest of my code or is a general plotly issue? Can I download it ?

library(shiny)
library(ggplot2)
library(plotly)

                           ".csv")),

Hi,

I think it's an issue with the "ShinyApp Viewer" in RStudio (I have the same issue with the "rAmCharts" package). Try to open your app in your browser may be :wink:
Then you can rename it with the name you want and the file should be correctly downloaded.

Best regards.

great!that worked! Although I would like to keep the question open for another solution to the root of the problem. Tnx!
