RStudio Server request: automatically convert special characters in file name to URL-compatible format

Sometimes I will be using RStudio Server and I will generate a png which has the character + in the filename, for example:

If I click on it to open it up and view it in a new browser tab, I will get the message
/files/path/to/my+file.png not found.
In order to view it, I need to change the + in the URL string to %2b.

I was thinking it would be good to have this sort of conversion occur automatically, if possible. Thanks!

You can formally file a feature request on the GitHub repository for the RStudio IDE.

Done, thanks.
