Dear ESS gurus,
First of all, thanks for a great software - I've been using it for
years and it's extremely helpful.
After a certain upgrade ESS started doing something that keeps getting
in my way, and I want to ask if there's a way to turn this off.
I typically have two windows (as in window manager windows), with one
having source code, another running R. When some R code is executing,
and I am editing the source while that's happening, whenever I type an
opening paren ESS either splits the source screen and shows the R
process in there. If the source screen is already split, it shows R
session in one of the existing panes. I imagine this is some kind of an
autocomplete attempt. The problem is that the source panes are typically
there exactly the way I want it, and I don't want ESS switching any views.
So, is there a way to turn this off (during startup)? I am willing to
sacrifice autocomplete if that's what it takes ...
thanks in advance,
