Slow and awkward processing Japanese characters on R Studio IDE

Thanks for a great app!

I have just switched from macOS to Windows 10 Pro, and found some problems typing in Japanese characters on R Studio for Windows, which I have never experienced on macOS.

  1. It takes longer time to see Japanese characters appear both on the editor and the console windows than other applications.
  2. R Studio IDE does not show Japanese characters while users type kana and the Input Method Editor translates those kana into kanji.
    This is a annoyance because one can not make sure proper kanji are translated from kana while typing. One can only do this only after kanji are decided.

I make movies to explain this.

This movie shows what is going when typing in Japanese characters on R Studio IDE.

This movie shows how it goes when typing in Japanese characters on a common Windows application. ( in this case, ‘Hidemaru’ editor)

I hope these videos and my explanation will make some sense.
