Latest RStudio update has changed autocomplete behavior. Seeking help understanding.

I just updated RStudio on my Mac to version 2023.03.0+386, and certain autocomplete functionality I used to use extensively seems to have changed. Specifically, I'll look to select columns for a join in the middle of a pipe stream. Previously, the autocomplete was fairly intelligent and context-aware and would draw from the names of the table I was trying to join from. Now, attempting to autocomplete generates the error: Error in context[[1L]] : subscript out of bounds. Out of habit, I'll provide a reprex, although since that fails to reproduce the error, I will attach a screenshot as well.

df1 <- data.frame(
  id = 1:10,
  x = runif(10),
  y = sample(letters[1:10])

df2 <- data.frame(
  id = 3:7,
  z = rnorm(5)

df2 %>% 
  left_join({ # With cursor in these curly brackest, hit tab to autocomplete.
    df1 %>% 
      select(id, x)
#> Joining, by = "id"

What is happening now that wasn't previously?

More importantly (to me), can I either

  • change some setting to revert to the previous behavior? or
  • use some fancy new join function I haven't learned about yet which will yield behavior similarly useful to the previous?

I'm grateful for any explanation or help available.
