copy R code to Notion with right format

I have a block of R code looks like this:

replicates <- list()
data_path <- "D:/data"

file_list <- list.files(data_path, pattern = "\\.rds$", full.names = TRUE)

for (file_path in file_list) {
  loaded_data <- readRDS(file_path)

  extracted_list <- loaded_data[[1]]$my_data

  # Append the extracted list to the combined_list
  replicates <- c(replicates, list(extracted_list))
}

however when I try to copy this block to Notion, the format becomes so weird with only one line code, like this:

replicates <- list()data_path <- "D:/data" file_list <- list.files(data_path, pattern = "\\.rds$", full.names = TRUE) #here comes the rest of the original code, still in this line, I delete them

It works well on Windows, but not the Mac that I am using now. I have no idea how to fix it. I hope someone can help me out there, thanks!

When you hover over a code block in Notion, at the top left you can select languages.

Just select the correct one and the code will display in multiple lines as you need.

Sorry that I didn't make it clear. I did it but it still shows in one line. I tried it on windows it works.

I also tried the top right three dots, choosing "Wrap code". It shows in multiple lines but a messy format.

I just tested in Mac and it works fine as well.

Try updating the Notion App to the latest version, that may be the problem.

I created a page by hitting the keyboard and choosing "/Page", then I started my notes, and I needed to add a the block of my R code, it's a part of my notes. Then I did "/Code", changed the language to "R", and copy paste.

That is the correct way of doing it. Try updating the app as I said above or you can select another language to see if that works better.

The version is 2.2.1 now, the latest one. The problem is still there, but thanks anyway. I think I need to do it manually or switch to windows.

Strange, actually I am not able to display it in one line, no matter which language I choose.

In the Help menu try: Troubleshooting > Reset and Erase all local data.

That is the last one I can think that may fix the issue.

Same :(. Thank you so much anyway. (I am not able to show it multiple lines no matter which language I choose)

Glad to help and it is strange that it works differently for people, maybe a Notion bug that for sure will be fixed in new versions.
