RStudio 1.4 Python virtualenvs location

I am using the latest RStudio Desktop IDE (using a custom build from GitHub from Jan 23, 2021, which means it is downstream from v1.4.1103).

To set up Python, I go to Global Options / Python / and then I select my Python interpreter.

It will find any Python installation on my system and it will also find virtual environments that are in ~/.virtualenvs/, and allow me to select any virtual environment in there.

Is there are setting somewhere telling it to look in a directory called .virtualenvs in my home directory? I have virtual environments in other directories too, and these are not found because it does not know where to look for them. I just wondered where it is set to look for a directory called .virtualenvs in my home directory and is there are a way of changing this?
