Dear Johannes,

When you come from XP and used R with Tinn-R Why don't you try The  
standard R-Gui that comes with the R binaries. I find it very  
intuitive and easy to use. Syntax coloring is complete, send line,  
send selection, and send all is easy with just one short key (you can  
set it as you wish in the preferences).

Just give it a try.
Best regards
