Hi Wassup superstarts, I have an super innovative idea that I would like to share with you. I make use of super large files and sometimes - when you click on an error for example - you move to a sertain line and its not easy to go back to the previouse section.

It would be amazing if there would be a button where you could go to the previus line, Its probably easy to maken, just record the line where someone has clickt and make a button that interacts with the function go to line and its done.

Look forward to your reply.

on Windows 11 ?
Hi, I had download spyder without anaconda. I would like to perform uninstall silently and yet I found that after I run the batch file, the program is still exist in my window program and features. I need to additionally uninstall in program and features. Is there any way that I can uninstall the spyder completely?
Everytime, I start up the latest version of Spyder (5.1.5), an error message pop up. " QtWebEngineProcess.exe System Error" " It said, it cannot find the VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL . I would like to know any method to solve this problem?
Arthur Hill
The upgrade to Spyder (5.1.5) via Anaconda (using the recommended command prompt command: conda install spyder=5.1.5) takes longer than 47 hours with >378 "Examining conflict for" lines. After reaching 373//373 100%, it just keeps going with conflict examination lines. Has anyone else noticed this?
Jeff Heck
Yes Arthur. I just cancelled it. And then installed Spyder with the separate installation. Anaconda is like wrestling an anaconda.
Also, Edward_Chan, I get the same thing with theQtwebengineProcess error. So far I just ignore it and all seems to work.
Bastian Zimmermann
You can also use mamba which is like conda but solves this in a minute or two.

I wanted to ask again--Spyder 5.15 in Windows 10 in a virtual env, undocked windows are forgotten on close of UI. I thought it might remember them. Is there a particular place that info would be stored? It could be my venv setup so I want to check if the info is stored somewhere but not accessed when I start in the venv.

Is there a way to invoke help other than enabling auto help on left parenthesis? For example, in the console, I'd prefer it not always pop up, but would also sometimes like help w/out typing help(some_function) etc.
