I installed R 3.4.1 on Mac OSX 10.12.6 version.

On opening Preferences and trying to change the editor font by
clicking the select button I get following error message in R.

2017-08-28 11:57:41.551 R[809:11355] *** RController: caught ObjC
exception while processing system events. Update to the latest GUI
version and consider reporting this properly (see FAQ) if it persists
and is not known.
*** reason: *** -initForReadingWithData: nil argument
*** name: NSInvalidArgumentException, info: (null)
*** Version: R 3.4.1 (72865) R.app R 3.4.1 GUI 1.70 El Capitan build
Consider saving your work soon in case this develops into a problem.

Interestingly, I do not see the normal courier font that shows up when
one clicks editor in preferences of R. Screenshot attached.

My sessioninfo() is below.
