Shift F10 fail, no run/debug save option


The Shift F10 function in PyCharm fails to run the module, but CTL SHIFT F10 works fine.  All other CTL/ALT/SHIFT function keys work as expected.


I suspect this is because I have not saved a permanent run/debug config, so I am relying on the temporary one, as described here:


When I try to follow the save run/debug config instructions here:


I run into a problem.  I do not see the word "save", nor do I see the little diskette drive icon as described in this text:

  • In the Run/Debug Configuration selector, choose Save <configuration name>.
  • In the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box, click the mainToolbarSave button.
  • On the context menu of the editor or Project view, choose Save <configuration name>.


I am running the version that I downloaded today:

PyCharm Community Edition 2016.1.4
Build #PC-145.1504, built on May 25, 2016
JRE: 1.8.0_77-b03 x86
JVM: Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM by Oracle Corporation


What can cause the inability to save a run/debug config?

Experience the same issue. Found out that my Snagit program has a hotkey on 'Shift + F9' and 'Shift + F10'. For those who have the same issue may try to close another application on your windows and see when the key become work

Jomyut, correct.

In Windows 10, got to the System Tray -> right click the SnagIt icon -> click "Preferences..." -> click the "Hotkeys" tab -> modify the "Video capture stop" section (e.g. uncheck the Shift checkbox and change the drop-down menu option to "None").
