I am new to PyCharm, and trying to set it up so I can run a script in a new IPython console. In "Edit configurations" I have checked "Run with python console", which achieves this goal. However, when I run any script attempting to show a Qt window, the window is frozen / not responding. For example:
a = pyqtgraph.PlotWindow()
a = pylab.plot([1,2,3],[1,2,1])
leads to a frozen plot window.
In Spyder (the IDE I am trying to escape), running this would bring up an unfrozen / interactive window, and allow me to access its properties and manipulate it via the console.
Any ideas? I'm on Windows 10 with PyCharm 2022.1 community and Miniconda Python 3.9.
