New file in PyCharm


I am unable to open a new file in PyCharm (Alt + Insert / File>New) as when I attempt to it says "Nothing here"


How do I solve this? Thanks


I don't mind having a default blank window when all my other windows have shut. I just want to avoid having no way of opening a file

Please open your Project view (ALT+1), place the cursor inside project root, and then hit ALT+INSERT

Thanks Andrey I was having this problem as well. Might I suggest that Alt+Insert be auto-scoped to the project root by default? Is there any circumstance where that would NOT be the desired behavior?

I guess you are right and we could do that, but maybe there are some pitfalls.
