I used brew install R to install R and I use the most recent version of 
Rstudio. And when I use the "export" in Rstudio, it tells me the following. 
Warning messages:
1: In cairo_pdf(file = "/Users/xinlianzhang/Desktop/Rplot.pdf", width = 
5.22917,  :
  unable to load shared object 
6): Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libjpeg.8.dylib
  Referenced from: 
  Reason: Incompatible library version: cairo.so requires version 13.0.0 or 
later, but libjpeg.8.dylib provides version 12.0.0
2: In cairo_pdf(file = "/Users/xinlianzhang/Desktop/Rplot.pdf", width = 
5.22917,  :
  failed to load cairo DLL
