Help Files missing for RevoScaleR package when browsing through RStudio

Problem
Selecting Users guides, package vignettes and other documentation link from the Package view pane returns a message that "The system cannot find the file specified".
Solution
The RevoScaleR package did not include a vignette file, only .pdf documents.  The index.html file is missing.  You can create a new index.html in the folder /library/RevoScaleR/doc and add the following contents using gedit or other text editor.

------------ <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> <html><head><title>R: Vignettes</title> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/doc/html/R.css"> </head><body> <h1> Vignettes <img class="toplogo" src="/doc/html/logo.jpg" alt="[R logo]"> </h1> <hr> <div align="center"> <a href="/doc/html/index.html"><img src="/doc/html/up.jpg" alt="[Top]" width="30" height="30" border="0"></a> </div> <h2>Vignettes from package 'RevoScaleR'</h2> Sorry, the package contains no vignette meta-information nor an index. Please browse the <a href=".">directory</a>. </body></html> -------------

Then simply save the .html file.  You should now be presented with a link to the directory and can select any of the ScaleR documents in .pdf form.
