Pycharm: Change default Python / Flask Console


I could not find an answer for this:

I have a Flask project that has (by default) two consoles preset: One (ordinary) "Python Console" and one "Flask console":

Now if I start a new console with the "+" symbol in the Console menu, it opens a "Flask Console" by default:

However I want the "Python Console" by default. In another Pycharm Flask project that I started a year ago, the "Python Console" starts by default, even though it appears to me that I have the same settings in both projects.

If Flask integration is enabled in  Preferences/Settings | Languages & Frameworks | Flask  the Python console acts as a Flask console by design. See details here 

You are welcome to submit a feature request at  to make Python Console available in Flask integration.
