@CAM-Gerlach Hi! Is there any change on the behavior of Spyder 3.3.3 ? On Mac, I have no more need to use %gui tkat the console to get a tkinterprogram running. I use mainloop() in the program. Two months ago, I could not use mainloop()and was obliged to use %gui tk. It is rather urgent to know the state of affairs as I must finish a book now. Thanks.

@jproy We've fixed spyder-ide/spyder#6278 with spyder-ide/spyder-kernels#90 , which fixes issues with turtle which runs on tk. Also, its possible something like jupyter/qtconsole#175 fixed it if you were using an old QtConsole version until recently, which prevents QtConsole from blocking the GUI event loop, or similarly one of the many possible changes in IPython/ipykernel where they've been working on this. However, if it works consistently (I'd test on multiple platforms, since GUI support in general varies pretty substantially between them independent of Spyder) I'd put it in but also mention %gui tk as a fallback for those running older versions or if it doesn't happen to work.

hi, why isn't it possible to sort a column in the variable explorer by index? they can be sorted by all columns except that one...

@quiguisola Seems like it isn't in Spyder 3 for some reason, but it works just fine in Spyder 4, Beta 2 of which should be coming out any day now...

i will just close and open the window for now, as it sorts it by index on the opening
