PyCharm crashes typing an import statement.

Answered

Guys, due to the lack of comments in the majority of posts I'm probably wasting my time posting here but here goes:

PC 2017.3.2 (Pro), build #PY-173.4127.16

I created a new file. Let's say I want to import os in the IDE. So, I type i m p o r t space

at that point the IDE exits, no warning, no error, just boom and it's gone.

If I then copy and paste "import os" from another file it works. Surely that's a bug, no?

I can live with the "problem" but can someone reproduce it? I'm using the latest download of PC and everything was working okay before I upgraded. I haven't changed any options that I'm aware of.

Any ideas?

Another user reported the same problem in November.

We're a little behind as it was holiday last week where the dev team lives. I'll give a nudge for this post.

When you say reported in November, do you mean here in the forum or in a YouTrack ticket?

Hi Mr Mxyzptlk! Do you have any java_error_in_PYCHARM files in your user home directory? Could you please create a ticket in our bug tracker and attach those files and idea.log from Help | Show Log in ...? If it's too big please upload to https://uploads.services.jetbrains.com/ and specify the file name.

Paul: it was a forum post I found. I tried searching through many pages of topics again but I can't find it. I sort of stumbled across the similar problem and I made a mental note of it going back to November but not the link to the topic.I'll have a look at the tickets as well.

Peter.

Pavel: I can't find any file called java_error_in_PYCHARM. I wiped out the idea.log file. I can replicate the problem every time but there's no direct smack in the face error in the log but I'll try and create a ticket and attach it anyway.

As I say, if I copy and paste an existing import statement from another file PC does not exit and I can edit the import; I just can't type the import statement as a new line/statement.

Anna, I think I did manage to create a ticket and attached my idea.log file as well. Unless I made a mess doing so there shouldn't be a neeed for you to do so but thanks anyway. :-)

I think I solved the import crash problem (leastways mine). I went into the File menu and invalidated/cleared the caches. PyCharm restarted and I can now type an import statement without a problem.
