Global settings are accessible from the top menu with File then Settings. Changes are automatically applied and save (with exception of the language which requires a restart of RCode). You can restore the default value using the return circle on the right of the field which appears when you hover the field.

Each section in this page is associated to a tab on the left menu in the settings panel.

RCode Settings


  • Language: the language of RCode, currently available: English, French, Russian, Chinese and Romanian. A restart of RCode is required to apply a new language. The default one is the one of your OS, and if it doesn't match, it is English.
  • Theme: the style of RCode, currently available: Light (default) or Dark.
  • Welcome screen: display the Welcome screen on startup.
  • Show language server errors: if you run into error messages when opening a .R or .py file, you can disable this setting to hide the errors.
  • Telemetry: if enabled, RCode will send anonymous data to improve the software. Data includes your OS, the R version you are using, theme and language.
