Description of issue -
I have been using RStudio on Windows 10 without problems for a couple of years now. However, the other day I decided (finally!) to enable version control using Git. Following the instructions in https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/articles/200532077-Version-Control-with-Git-and-SVN, I enabled it OK in Tools -> Global Options, then went to Tools -> Project Options. And that's about when my problems started... RStudio hung.
Attempted steps taken to fix -
I shut down RStudio, and re-started it. No change. The main window appears, with the main menu displayed (see attached graphic). I can select a main menu item, but none of the drop-down, second-level menus appear. All I can do is shut down.
I uninstalled RStudio and re-installed it from a newly-downloaded copy - RStudio 1.1.463. No change.
I repeated the steps above with re-boots in between. No change.
I ran the diagnostics executable and captured the output
- RStudio Edition: Desktop
- RStudio Version: 1.1.463
- OS Version: Windows 10
- R Version: 3.5.1
- Output your diagnostics report (if possible): I have the diagnostics file, but it is huge - over 1Mb, so I'd rather not upload it in its entirety. However, I'm happy to provide relevant sections, if someone can tell me which sections are relevant!
