Do you wonder why a selection will be wrapped by `` after pressing ` well then I can help you.

If you select something in the R script editor or in the RConsole and you will then press ( or { or [ or " or ' or ` then the selection will be wrapped by these characters; of course for parentheses by the corresponding closing variant.

Since ⌥⌘+` is not assigned to any command this short-cut will simply wrap the selection by ``.
