I'm trying to set the location of my Django settings file in PyCharm. By opening Settings > Languages & Frameworks > Django, and editing the "Settings:" field, I try to enter the absolute path of the file. My settings file does NOT reside in the project directory. PyCharm seems to have a problem parsing the path.
My project directory is "C:\Dylan\NEMO\".
My settings file is located at "C:\Dylan\NEMO_runtime\settings.py". When I enter that path, it changes it to "_runtime\settings.py" and a warning that PyCharm "Can't find settings file _runtime\settings.py".
Is there a way to set the absolute path for the settings.py file that resides OUTSIDE the project directory?
