Avoid multiple console tabs



I've searched the Web and forum and can't find anything.

Is there a way to avoid PyCharm of opening a new console tab after each 'Run'. While developing the code, I end up with hundreds of console tabs which is useless. Ideally, re-running the code would simply display in the existing console, as would Matlab. 

With the same idea: when in SciView (Plots) is it possible to avoid adding new plots and just update the one that is currently displayed?

Thank you in advance!

You are probably looking for Use existing console for "Run with Python Console" in Preferences | Build, Execution, Deployment | Console

That is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks!

Any idea on how to avoid creating new plots, but rather to update the existing plot? I'm using the SciView so the plots I am referring to are the ones that appear on the right-hand side of PyCharm.

Unfortunately, no :(

There is a bug in our issue tracker about that https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-31615
