[R-SIG-Mac] R.app

Thank you
The return before clicking anywhere else solved that problem, clever

So I trash all invisible .Rhistory and .Rdata files
Then made a new folder (called R_History_Data) and aim Preferences at this
folder (using the return)
Then run R.app and yes, I have one .Rhistory and one .Rdata in that folder

But then I change the working directory and do some stuff
Then quit and save working directory
And now I have two of each invisible files, one in R_History_Data and one in
the working directory folder

So it still appears as I move from directory to directory I will leave
invisible .Rhistory and .Rdata files all over

Is it possible to have Rhistory and Rdata always written to the
R_History_Data folder?
