PyCharm needs local configured Python SDK

I'm developing Python using Windows with Windows Subsystem for Linux (Ubuntu). While everything compiles, all of the docstrings say:

"You need a configured local Python SDK to render docstrings."

Using 3.8 @ Ubuntu (configured for current and new projects) in PyCharm and have 3.9 installed on Windows. Running the program from Windows with the interpreter set in Ubuntu. Please advise.

>have 3.9 installed on Windows.

Please add the local interpreter to the PyCharms configuration.

See the comment on this from the responsible developer

Unfortunately, there is no workaround.

Should you have any questions please let me know.
