Can't debug because the commands for debugging are grayed out

Answered

I opened a python script to debug it. I can run the program in the debugger (Run -> Debug...) but I can't set any breakpoints or do steps. All those commands are grayed out in the Run menu. Any idea what could be the problem and how to fix it?

These options will be available if you put breakpoints in your code and launch a debug session: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/2017.1/stepping-through-the-program.html.

Thank you. It works.

I'm unable to use the debug controls, and I have a breakpoint set (if I am interpreting the symbology correctly.)  Not sure what the checkmark on the red breakpoint dot means...
