Often when I open an existing file, for a second I will have good syntax hilighting but then:
a: Most/all of the hilighting goes away
b: the editor cursor goes away. Meaning that I can't insert or change text.
I'm new to PyCharm, and don't now how to tell what's going on in the background. With Eclipse/PyDev, if you have a huge codebase and
have your git/hg repo under the project directory, pydev would spend so much time scanning changed files that it would bog severely.
a: how do I tell what PyCharm is doing in the background w.r.t. builders, code inspection, etc.
b: is anyone else having this problem? I've seen it to some degree on all three systems I've tried it on:
- Oracle JDK 7.something
- always displayed in Cygwin/X on win7x64.
So far.. it's maddening. Either I'm missing some fundamental difference from Eclipse/PyDev code editing, or I've managed to trigger a bug? If I can't get beyond this, no chance of me buying a license :)
