I'm having trouble using the set value option in the variables window of the debugger. I'm using PyCharm 2017.3.3 (Professional Edition) (Build #PY-173.4301.16, built on January 11, 2018) on Windows 10 Enterprise. I have a simple dictionary and want to change the value of one of the elements. There is no nastygram - the value just reverts back to the original value. This seems related to this post but it was quite a while ago. Perhaps it broke again??
A colleague clued me in to the fact that I can do assignment inside the evaluate window! I had been using that to look at expressions but never imagined I could do an assignment! So I can do what I want another way but I don't understand why set value is not working for me.
