I run the console just to try out some library methods lke random.gauss(0,1), then I guess it needs to define random.gauss() so I get a "Getting Description" pop up in the middle of the screen and it just freezes.
Moral of the story, can you build an option to "bare bones" the IDE?
Obviously it cannot handle all this functionality.
I will never open iPython console on Pycharm again. Not worth it.
