I'm having some complex issues that I think are all related, and altogether they mean that my RStudio IDE is not functional. Hoping someone can help.
Running R 3.4.1; RStudio 2023.06.2+561 (just updated both to try to fix the problem)
on MacOS 12.4; intel chip (i7).
The RStudio IDE is not communicating with R; when I run a line of code by hitting command enter in an Rmd notebook (for example library(lubridate)), it either does not reflect this command in the console pane; or it does, but it hangs up and never runs the code. It doesn't matter what I enter.
At the same time, I notice on my activity monitor that pandoc is running in the background and has eaten up 100% of my memory.
pandoc is DEFINITELY being called by RStudio; when I close RStudio, pandoc shuts down and I get my memory back. If I start up the IDE again, pandoc eats up all my memory in the space of a minute or two.
Here's a screenshot of the issue that I've described:
