Persisting RStudio Keyboard Shortcut Modifications

If you would like to persist your keyboard shortcuts across different sessions in RStudio you can so like this. You will find the file /home/ubuntu/.R/rstudio/keybindings/rstudio_bindings.json where you can see the modifications that have been done. You will notice that this file and it's associated directory do not show until you do your first modification. In my dummy example I modified the opening of a file from Cmd-O to Cmd-P which looks like this:

 {"openSourceDoc" : "Cmd+P"}

You can write this file in your docker environment or, alternatively, in a pre-run script. You can find more details around this in the following support article https://support.dominodatalab.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000551503-Persisting-RStudio-preferences

Have a powerful day,
