I can't write in the editor ( And its happening more often everytime)


I know its not the first time this is written here, but none of the solutions work. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tM8YdRYc8Zk,  https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/206152119-Can-t-type-in-editor-window)

What is more strange is that it never had happened to me until this morning. Then it happened again less than one hour ago, and now it happens after 10 min of restarting Pycharm. (It's the only way I managed to fix this issue)

So.. what should I do?



Please upload your renamed idea.log from Help | Show Log in... to https://uploads.services.jetbrains.com/ and let me know the name of the file.


Ah, that was the way to upload it, I wanted to in the first message but I was trying to attach it here. The file is called idea_Uriarte.log. It just crashed again, so it should have useful information in the latest entries.


Looking at the log you have custom plugin:

Ideolog (

Please try disabling it and see if that helps.

If it doesn't, please start IDE with default settings by renaming/removing configuration folder https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/directories-used-by-the-ide-to-store-settings-caches-plugins-and-logs.html

>It just crashed again, so it should have useful information in the latest entries.

You didn't mention any crashes before. The problems could be related, so I suggest to first solve the problem with typing in editor and if IDE will keep crashing, we will investigate it as a separate issue.



Sorry, by crashing I meant the error of not typing. I am not aware of having installed that plug in, so I will deactivate it right now. Thanks!
