Unable to insert skeleton (the cursor is not currently inside an R function definition).

Hi community,
When I was developing a package, I want to insert a Roxygen. It always happens as below. May I please know how to solve the problem?

Hi Chloe,

Your mouse cursor needs to be inside the body of the function. Click anywhere inside the { } of the function and try again. It should work then.


Hi @mattwarkentin,

Thank you! Finally, I see the reason!!
