How to make vim work in the console window?

Esc in markdown window correctly begins vim editing. Esc in the console window just cancels the current command line. options()$editor equals "vi" which is symbolically linked to /usr/bin/vim.tiny.

vim also works w/o problem in the terminal window.

I'm using Rstudio Version 1.1.463 on Ubuntu 16.04

Any help appreciated.

Do you still see this in the latest RStudio release?
