By Sean Lopp Here is this month’s collection of RStudio Tips and Tricks. Thank you to those who responded to; many of your tips are included below!
Be sure to subscribe to on Twitter for more. This month’s tips fall into two categories: Keyboard Shortcuts and Easier R Markdown. Keyboard Shortcuts The RStudio IDE is built upon “hooks”.
Hooks are actions that the IDE can take. For instance, there is a hook to create a new file. Most users interact with hooks with point-and-click interactions. ( RStudio toolbar - new file or File - New File). But, there is an alternative!

Custom Keyboard Shortcuts To view the complete list of actions, the current keybindings, and to customize keybindings, go to: Tools - Modify Keyboard Shortcuts.
