My YAML has a fourth field (editor: visual). Did I inadvertently create that when I created the quarto file? Also, when I render the html file, I get an html file that pops up in my browser, but I don't see report in the Files or the Viewer (bottom right pane). What am I missing?

Hey, Rob! Yep, the editor: visual call that you see in your yaml likely came from leaving the "Use visual markdown editor" checkbox checked while in the New Quarto Document set-up screen. No worries, though, that editor: visual call won't break anything! It just tells the file to open with the visual editor up instead of the source editor. Here's a quick video showing me creating a new document and where the html file gets saved.
