Highlighting has disappeared - RStudio IDE 1.2.1335 Update

I've found that code highlighting has disappeared. No distinction between R code and Rmakdown text. It was fine a few days ago.

Very disconcerting!

Previously, the R code sections would be clearly distinguished from the rest of the code. Also the cursor won't select a word or clearly identify a selected bunch of text (although copy/paste seems to work). This is the case with Version 1.2.1335 ...

It's not just the Source pane. The Console pane is monochrome, too:


Does the issue go away if you try changing the editor theme and then changing back afterwards?

I've had exactly the same issue with the 1.2.1335 and changing the theme did work.

No change when I switch themes. :frowning:

That's unexpected!

Can you try resetting RStudio's state? https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/articles/200534577-Resetting-RStudio-Desktop-s-State


That fixes it! Thanks, Kevin!

A big reminder of how much I depend on RStudio's subtle cues to think about R code!

How about Rstudio-server?

A similar mechanism is available for resetting state with RStudio Server: https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/articles/218730228-Resetting-a-user-s-state-on-RStudio-Server
