With C-c C-e C-d ??

,----[ C-h f ess-dump-object-into-edit-buffer RET ]
| ess-dump-object-into-edit-buffer is an interactive compiled Lisp
| function in `ess-mode.el'.
| It is bound to C-c C-e d, C-c C-e C-d, <menu-bar> <ESS> <ESS Edit>
| <Edit new object>.
| (ess-dump-object-into-edit-buffer OBJECT)
| Edit an ESS object in its own buffer.
| Without a prefix argument, this simply finds the file pointed to by
| `ess-source-directory'. If this file does not exist, or if a
| prefix argument is given, a dump() command is sent to the ESS process to
| generate the source buffer.
