Hey listers --

I'm a journalist and an R newbie but do I know my way around a Mac.

Got a weird problem I'm trying to troubleshoot

Both my Macbook Air and my iMac are running the same OS: Mojave 10.14.6

But each one is running different versions of R.

The iMac is running v 4.0.0 "Arbor Day"

The Macbook is running 3.6.0 "Planting of a Tree"

*PROBLEM:* Labels do not display in plots run on the iMac. Labels do
display properly on the MacBook.

Here's the colour wheel example from demo(topic="graphics") on the iMac. No

And here's the same plot as it displays on the Macbook. With Labels.

Looking a little closer at the fine print in the console when I fire up R,
there is this line on my iMac:

[R.app GUI 1.71 (7827) x86_64-apple-darwin17.0]

But we have different version numbers on my Macbook:

[R.app GUI 1.70 (7657) x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0]

Attempted the following on the iMac:

1. Uninstalled R 4.0.0
2. Grab the R 3.6.3 from http://mac.r-project.org/
3. Installed R 3.6.3.
4. Ran demo(topics="Graphics") again -- and got the same result -- no
labels on any plots.
