Execution point not appearing when debugging, but only for some files

When debugging some code the execution point is no longer showing the code is executing and breaking at break points but i can't see the highlighted execution point, but if i try other scripts in the same project the execution point shows up, even shows up if I step into another module from the one where it doesn't appear.

Hi,

Do you still have some issues using PyCharm?

I've got the same problem, in fact the execution point arrow has never shown up for me. Is there a setting I'm missing? I used to use this feature on VB years ago and loved it, annoyed I dont seem to have the option in PyCharm.

Hi Tobynz!
Does the issue appear with all of your files or only certain ones?

Hi Sergey

Yes this happens on all files. Both machines I'm using are Win 10, 64bit. Python 3.6 / 7.

Do you happen to have & symbol in the path to your scripts? There is a known issue with it https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-38490

Unfortunately there are no special symbols in my path. My project is very small (4 files), is just sitting in my Git repository on my C: drive C:\PyLearn\Adventure_game and PyCharm is installed using all default options. I'll try uninstalling everything tonight and reset, see if that helps.

If it still doesn't work after that, would be great to have some screencast or screenshots showing the issue.
