Large Rmd.HTML Preview Crashes Rstudio

rmarkdown
rstudio

#1

When the HTML output from my .Rmd gets larger (seems to be greater than ~10 MB), Rstudio crashes when the option is set to preview the R Markdown output in the Window. If I set preview to (None) in Global Options>R Markdown, the HTML output is created successfully and can be viewed in any web browser.

Is there a limitation to the file size that may be previewed using the Rstudio Viewer Window? Or can you suggest another possible solution?

Thanks,
Kevin
