Tip of the day: Keep the console active in R Productivity Environment

Jared Lander on Twitter asks:

When I alt-tab into [Revolution] R Enterprise how do I make the #rstats [R] console the active window by default. Now it goes to solution explorer.

Revolution’s crack Support engineer Stephen Weller offers this solution:

The best way to do this is to right-click on the R-Console window and make it a ‘Tabbed Document’. If you then make the ‘R-Console’ window the active window and exit Revolution R, it will remain the active window the next time you start the program (or press ‘Alt-Tab’).

In in addition to the R console, the  R Productivity Environment includes a smart R code editor and interactive debugger. It’s included with Revolution R Enterprise for Windows, available by subscription for businesses, and for free download for academic users.
