Rstudio tab completion within here:here() function

Using Rstudio 1.1.456 (which I can't change), on a Windows 10 box, and within an Rproject folder, the function here::here() returns the right folder to the console. But, when I am writing out code, and I want to use tab--completion to identify a folder or file, Rstudio does not start from the project root folder, but seems to be lost somewhere further down in the project file structure. It is as if here::here() knows where it is, but not the editor. Suggestions?

RStudio's autocompletion system always forms paths relative to the current working directory. We haven't taught it how to complete relative to the project root when here() is being used.
