Hi. I am editing a number of Rmarkdown files. My environment is:
Rstudio Version 1.2.5042
Windows 10 Pro, Version 1930
File system backup to Dropbox
When I am editing any of several .rmd files I can save my work a few times, and then Save simply stops working. This behavior is consistent across any .rmd file I work on.
Sometimes I see a pop-up that says that 'The file cannot be saved as another application is accessing it'. But, in fact, no other application is accessing the file.
When the file cannot be saved, I must shut down Rstudio from the task manger; I cannot shutdown in the usual manner. On restart, whatever new work is lost.
I have searched for similar problems. I cannot find any behavior exactly like what I experience. Following a suggestion in one of the posts I checked my QT_PLUGIN_PATH and find it is blank as it should be: "".
Thinking there might be something about the file path, or something to do with Dropbox, I put some .rmd files in a new directory at the top level of Dropbox. But, the problem persists.
Update: I may have discovered the problem here. My console hangs asking me if I want to load miniconda. Regardless of how I answer, the console is firmly hung. I think this must be the same problem as this issue, 710: https://github.com/rstudio/reticulate/issues/710
