Hey RStudio community, first post here so apologies if this has been answered or if this is not the proper avenue to ask.
Context: We've moved machines in my office and my new cloud-based desktop has a much newer version of RStudio (Ghost Orchid) than the one I was using previously (Tiger Daylily). I've been using this new version for a few weeks now and have noticed some subtle differences around debugging/use of the browser() function that are, respectfully, annoying. Everything I'm about describe is within a debug/browser() context/environment.
- If I'm actively editing and running code from my file (I've popped out the file to put it on a different screen), my active cursor will shift back to the main RStudio window after every line of code.
- Even if I already have the file open, RStudio will sometimes open another copy of the file with the browser() call inside of it (Tiger Daylily did this as well, but maybe there is a setting to turn off this behavior).
- The "debug window" which looks like another tab, but the icon is a pair of glasses and you can't edit any of the code inside, will open over and over even after closing while within the browser() environment.
Not sure if this is vague or if anyone else has come across this already. Looking for any recommendations from changing app settings, installing a different version of RStudio, or even if there is a more convenient method of debugging besides the browser() function. Any help is appreciated, thanks everyone.
