Why do I have to reinstall the tidyverse package every time I create a new project?

Hi, I'm new to R, and for some reason whenever I create a new project in Posit, I can't import the tidyverse package using library(), even though I've already downloaded the package two or three times. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

Hello Andrew,

I never have to reinstall packages when creating a a new project.
Therefore please tell us more. E.g.

  • on which platform you are working
  • what version of Posit are you using
  • be explicit in telling what you are doing:
    how do you create the project
    which library statement do you use

The more you tell us, the more likely someone will be able to help you.

Are you using Posit Cloud instead of RStudio Desktop?
