Environment Pane: Display by order of creation

Is there a way to have the Environment Pane order itself by time of creation. Sometimes I have large scripts with lots of intermediate datasets that I just want to see the last few datasets created before I start picking thing apart.

There isn't any built-in way to do this, because neither R nor RStudio track when objects were created. But there are a few things you could do:

  • name your datasets so that newer ones sort alphabetically in the way you want
  • use rm() to remove datasets you don't need any more
  • file a feature request for the IDE to add this feature :slight_smile:
