I use the free version of Notetab (www.notetab.com) which supports
macros, and the macro file below. Ctrl-space (repeat last macro) will
send any highlighted text to an open GUI.

;Save the file if it has been modified
;Select the highlighted block.
^!If ^$GetSelSize$ = 0 END ELSE SelectLines

^!Set %AnyText%=^$GetSelection$
;Write the selected text to a temporary file in the Windows temp. dir.
^!Set %fileName%=^$GetTmpPath$std0001.r
^!Set %fileName%=^$StrReplace(\;/;^%fileName%;True;False)$

^!TextToFile ^%fileName% ^%AnyText%
; Copy "source" to the clipboard
^!SetClipboard source("^%fileName%")
; Switch to R
^!FocusApp RGui*
;ESC to clear the Command window, paste the command, hit enter
^!Keyboard ESC
^!Keyboard CTRL+V
^!Keyboard ENTER

In addition, here my favorite reg-file to start R with right mouse button in
Explorer in a given directory


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Run R]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Run R\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\R\\rw1050\\bin\\Rgui.exe\" --internet2"
