    Hi,
    I really love rgedit, it's certainly my favourite IDE for R. However, since coming back (to an upgraded ubuntu) after a while away from work I am unable to switch between the gedit .r file and the (attached) rgedit console using Ctrl+Tab. The cursor disappears from the .r file but doesn't arrive in the console. It's a rather important time and effort saving function for me, and I'm not sure how to solve the problem.

    I'm on Ubuntu 12.04, gedit 3.4.1 and Rgedit 0.7.1.2-GTK3

    Thanks,
    Ali

    Hi Ali,

    thanks for the bug report - I'll investigate it as soon as I can as I'm working on a new version altogether :)

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hi Dan,

    I have the same problem. Are there any workarounds available? Thanks for great work!

    Hi Robert,

    I'll have a look as soon as I can find the time :) What exactyl version of rgedit are you using?

    Thanks for the report,
    Dan

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I am using the latest version (0.8.0.1-Gtk3) and gedit 3.4.1 (default in Ubuntu 12.04).

    Cheers, Robert

    Hi Dan,

    Possibly related, Ctrl-Q and Esc also do not work to break computation. This is much more disruptive than the ctrl-tab issue because there is no workaround, that is, there is no way to break long computations in the R console.

    Cheers, Robert

    Hi guys,

    I just released 0.8.0.2-Gtk3 which fixes the Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+C issues for Gtk3. For breaking the computation under Gtk3, please note that currently ESC and Ctrl+Q do *not* work, but good old Ctrl+C does (but has the consequence that for copying the selection in the R console you must use Ctrl+X). This is because I didn't yet find a reliable way of sending R a fake Ctrl+C when ESC is actually pressed (I can do that in Gtk2 without problems though)…

    Hi Robert,

    I'm glad it works! It had to do with the transition from Gtk2 to Gtk3 (I must admit that I still use gedit 2.30 on my machines, but I'll transition at some point in the near future as well)

    Best,
    Dan
