Limited ide when not in project

Answered

I feel stupid for asking this. But a while ago I updated and now when I open a file (which I do via scp) I get a very limited editor. When I open pycharm by it's self it far more complete. 

I would like when I open a file to get into the complete IDE (I understand some features might not work). But I have no idea how this is done or what it is even called.

Hello,

It's called LightEdit mode. See https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/lightedit-mode.html, it describes how to exit it.

Ahh so thats what it's called. The solution that i was looking for wasn't on that page but now i know how it is called I was able to google the answer. 

 

Solution orginally from Rustam Vishnyakov:

If you permanently want to go back to the previous behavior, you can do this by setting a registry key:

  • Ctrl-Alt-Shift-/ open registery
  • In the Registry dialog find light.edit.file.open.enabled key and set it to false (uncheck the box).
