Feature Request: Open multiple files at once

rstudio
ide

#1

It would be really helpful if it were possible to open several files at once. Not sure why it still doesn't work. Is there a reason for that?

Hi @tho.mi! Welcome!

Do you mean open multiple files using the File > Open… menu? If you’d like to submit this as a feature request, here's your starting point:
RStudio IDE Guide: Writing Good Feature Requests

A similar (but not identical) request already exists:

Maybe in the meantime, the workaround suggested there would help?

You can accomplish something similar programmatically with e.g.

files <- list.files("R", full.names = TRUE)
file.edit(files)

and so in theory could build an RStudio Addin to handle this.

Thanks for the two links, I'll have a look!
