For some time I have had an issue of not being able to knit R Notebooks. Apparently the issue revolved around RStudio and (full) network drive paths names. I found a posting entitled R Markdown: openBinaryFile: does not exist (No such file or directory) and was able to modify my local Rprofile.site file by changing the network path to a network letter.
\\my_work_server.se/some_subdir$/username/My Documents ....... to H:/My Documents/R/win-library ....
My question having changed the local Rprofile.site file does this change only fix the problem for me locally or is it a global fix. Meaning what happens if I use a different computer or someone else logs into my computer and wants to use R/RStudio. Is there a better fix?
R Version 3.6.3
RStudio Version 1.2.5033
Pandoc version 2.7.2
