@CAM-Gerlach well seems like one of those updates was the answer... I should have done them one at a time to find out which one... here's what the update path was if anyone was interested / has a similar problem:

Probably either pyzmq, tornado, ipykernel or jupyter_client; quite possibly it was some mutual corner-case between specific versions so it wasn't bad that you updated them all at once.
Glad you got it fixed @athompson673 !

Can anyone send a link on how to associate a file extension with syntax coloring? I'd like to associate a .pyt file (used for ArcGIS) with python syntax coloring.

@stevenconnorg Unfortunately, I don't believe there's a built-in way to do that currently, since that's done through pyments. You could manually add the pyt extension as Python a number of different places in the code, or just do a hack to make it pretend to be .py when feeding it through to Pygments, although its a pretty narrow use case (a vanity extension for an otherwise generic Python module for a specific closed, proprietary program with plenty of good open-source alternatives). Others might have better ideas; longer term it would be nice to have better support for configuring syntax highlighting language manually, or easily adding custom extensions.

@CAM-Gerlach Thanks so much for your response. Would you be able to send any links for the workarounds you proposed?

@stevenconnorg I'm afraid not really, since I just came up with them off the top of my head looking at the code haha. You could search for e.g. .pyx to give you an idea of the places to add it, and you could look at spyder/config/, spyder/utils/ and spyder/widgets/sourcecode/ for places to fake Pygments into thinking its .py if needed.
