indented code block not recognized by R Studio

When I make a code block in R markdown starting with an indent character the code block loses options. For example, I make my code block with greater than sign as the first character
"> ```{r }"

Then R Studio no longer offers all the code block options like:

  • chunk options
  • run all code up to a certain point
  • syntax highlighting
  • code completion

The actual code is run correctly and PDFs show the code as indented but the R Studio parser does not appear to recognize it as code.
