R: Plotly package error in downloading png

I am using the plotly package to create plots in my shiny app but I am having trouble downloading these plots. Because this is for a shiny app, I want it to be interactive and not hardcoded.


dat <- data.frame(x = rnorm(1:100), y = rnorm(1:100))
p <- ggplot(dat, aes(x = x, y = y)) + geom_point()


R version 3.3.0 (2016-05-03)
Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin13.4.0 (64-bit)
Running under: OS X 10.11.5 (El Capitan)

I am having trouble downloading the plot. When I click on the camera on the top right toolbar in the plotly graph, it gives me the following error:

I am having this problem in the Rstudio Viewer pane, Safari and Chrome. How can I circumvent this problem and download the plot?

Updating your plotly package should do the trick. http://community.plot.ly/t/download-png-not-working-in-r-shiny/1574/3
