The live spell checker in RStudio Server causes large scripts to be impossible to edit. Code folding and moving the cursor causes lags of 30 seconds or more (in Firefox) with a 5000 line script.
Does anybody know how to disable the spell checker by default, so that administrators don't have to advise every new (or existing) user to disable spell checker to allow them to edit their scripts?
For anybody stumbling across this trying to find out why their rstudio-server editor is unusable, freezes, causes messages like "this page is slowing down your browser", do the following:
- In the Rstudio browser window, select the menu Tools | Global Options...
- Select Spelling from the left hand panel
- Under the section Checking , uncheck Use real time spell-checking
- Click OK
Now I know this, great, but I'd like to prevent the spell checker from being enabled by default, or to prevent it from checking .R files. Does anybody know how I can set this at the server level?
