[R] R / G GUI freezes saving plot

No, nothing particular at all I would say. I generate plots either with functions from base R (such as plot() ) or ggplot2. Plotting functions are fine, so long as I don’t try to save them…. I also noted that the issue is most frequent when I save the plots from the menu (File>Save as) than if I save them from the command line using for example pdf() (But it still happens sometimes saving files from the command line).

Are there any particular types of plotting you are doing when it becomes unresponsive? If so, it would be helpful to see an example.
