[R-SIG-Mac] Error resizing a plot window: Error in UseMethod("depth") :

Looks like a bug under High Sierra.
1. Close any open Quartz  graphics window
2. Running the example on the top of the cowplot page you linked.

Obtained:  useMethod("depth") error when the second plot tries to render (no need to resize the window)

Running the code a second time (i.e., when an already open graphics window) there's no error.

Repro  code:
theme_set(theme_cowplot(font_size=12)) # reduce default font size
plot.mpg <- ggplot(mpg, aes(x = cty, y = hwy, colour = factor(cyl))) +  geom_point(size=2.5)
plot.diamonds <- ggplot(diamonds, aes(clarity, fill = cut)) + geom_bar() +  theme(axis.text.x = element_text(angle=70, vjust=0.5))
plot_grid(plot.mpg, plot.diamonds, labels = c('A', 'B'))

Error in UseMethod("depth") :
  no applicable method for 'depth' applied to an object of class "NULL"

I've run the example code on the page below and resized the plots with no errors.


It may have something to do with running High Sierra, or the specific code/data you are using.

Could you post a reproducible example?

The plot was two ggplot2 graphs side by side, made using cowplot::plot_grid()

Set up is
R version: R version 3.4.1 (2017-06-30)
Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0
MacOS: 10.13 Beta (17A352a)

Is there a githuib or other page to log bugs in Mac R.app?

best, tim
