Literally the first line of the first section:
After installing a package (let's call it foo) outside Spyder, users may encounter an error trying to import it inside the IDE.
This happens because foo was installed (with either conda or pip) in a different conda or venv/virtualenv environment than the one in which Spyder is currently running.
I created the env in Navigator, I thought it automatically activates it ?
I have no idea if Navigator does, but using
conda from the command line does not do so when creating a new environment (and it explicitly reminds you to do so). I'm not sure how what Navigator does or doesn't do is relevant, since you are discussing working in some terminal (which, you have not yet clarified in response to my question). Furthermore, I've long since lost how any of this has to do with Spyder, beyond the relevant parts already explained in the guide I linked you. Other than that, please direct your non-Spyder-related
conda, Navigator and Anaconda questions to the appropriate people and venues, not the Spyder team. Thanks.
If I am outside of Spyder Terminal in a terminal session on the desktop is the (base) still the base env ?
I don't see how that has anything to do with Spyder, but...
If it says
(base) is still the
base env, because
(base) is the
base env. If
(base) is shown, then
base is the environment in which you are in. The purpose of
(base) is to show you are in the
base environment. The
base environment is indicated by the
(base) tag. All your
base envs are belong to us.
