Customizing File Types

Top  Previous  Next

You may create your own known file types and add their file signatures for scanning in Known File Types. They will appear in their respective folders on the File Types dialog box.

You can do that either by using the R-Studio's graphic interface or by direct editing the known file description file specified on the R-Studio Main settings dialog box.
