What do both of those options actually do and what's the difference?

The project directory contains only one .py file.

Hello, 

 

Open project will just open the directory in the IDE without interpreter configuration. If you click Create from existing sources, the directory will be opened and interpreter will be automatically configured according to the settings defined. 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Well, I can run Python scripts no matter which option I choose. Is that because I'm using a Conda environment? 

Besides, you choose an interpreter on the New Project window, so you already have an interpreter configured before you choose either of those options anyway. I don't understand. Could you explain further, please?

You can open a project, select an interpreter manually and run the script. (existing sources option)

 

 

OR  you can open a project and create a new virtual environment in this project and run the code. No manual selection will be required, it will be done automatically. 

 

Please let me know if that answers your question.
