RubyMine 7: How to run console in a debugging session?

The RubyMine 7 What's New page says:

For those who prefer the console for evaluating and executing while debugging, RubyMine now provides the ability to run the console in the context of a debugging session.

It shows a screenshot of the program stopped at a debugger breakpoint and the developer typing into a console.

Does this work when debugging tests?

I have RubyMine 7 but can't figure out how to turn on the console when I'm at a breakpoint when running tests.

Hello Brian,

Does this work when debugging tests?

Unfortunately, the debugger console is disabled when running tests. This is a bug, and would be fixed soon.
You can see and track the issue here:

Thank you for your feedback!
