I have the problem running the latest pretest for MacOS from
GNU Emacs 126.96.36.199 (x86_64-apple-darwin, NS apple-appkit-1038.36)
running with ESS version 5.14
I have reproduced it with the latest nightly build of emacs.
However, changing the pager that R is using fixed the problem
options(pager = "cat")
kudos: Erix Iverson -
Thanks again for following up.
