RStudio and foreign letters (diacritic signs)

Hi All,
Is it possible to have foreign language (Polish) letters in R-script window in RStudio ?
When I want to write them down, I am not able to do it (as usual with right Alt) .
When I copy and paste it eg. from office - it works and I have ("łążźóęśććć楥ĄŚŚŚŚŚĆĆÓÓÓŁŁŁŁŻŻŹŹŹ") all of them.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

What is your platform and session info?

I once had this issue with Czech characters (Czechs and Poles are next door neighbors). I managed to resolve it by following steps described in this SO question

Hi @jlacko

Thank you for your response.
Unfortunately your solution from SO doesn't work for me.


R version 3.6.2 (2019-12-12)
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)
Running under: Windows 10 x64 (build 17763)

That is a pity; for in such a case I don't have a solution to propose to you :frowning:

Have you tried changing the encoding for the RStudio source pane? File > Reopen with Encoding..., click 'Show all encodings', select WINDOWS-1250. Does that help?
