      1. Thanks Charlie, that helps a lot. For some reason the R Script files wouldn’t allow me to change the extension. I would type is as “.md” but it would then revert to .R without allowing me to change it. The text file workaround made all the difference. Thank you!

        1. Hi Natasha,

          Are you on Windows by chance? Often Windows complicates the process of changing extensions whereas macOS is very happy to do so. I’m glad the text file is now working for you.
