noob: trying to set a breakpoint


Hi - first time user of pycharm and I'm trying to set a breakpoint on the first line of an existing script but execution is not stopping at that line.

Hi Oliver! Your breakpoints are grey, instead of red, because they are muted. You should open your debug tool window ( and disable "Mute breakpoints" option.

Here's the command line from the console window:

/usr/bin/python /Applications/ --multiproc --qt-support --client --port 58069 --file /Users/oliverpike/Downloads/gitinspector-master/ --file-type=** --format=text "--exclude=tests/mockdata,author:^(?!(bharath kallur)|(Bijeesh Pudukkudi)|(Karthik Subramaniam)|(Alejandro Mier))" --since=12/Jan/2016

I noticed that if I hit pause, execution will stop at a point where I had a break point set prior to kicking off execution.
