I have been working with the 5.0.0dev version and noticed some problems: 1) View & Help do not appear in menu (on Mac); 2) sphinx docs are not showing up for my project (works great in Spyder4); debugging with wxpython apps hangs in GUI startup. Should I open tickets? I am happy to work on debugging, but need some guidance on where to look.

Hi there, I am new to tensorflow. I know that I should have a -64 bit- python version. I was have a -32 bit- one. so, I installed the new version.. but I cannot update it to anaconda and spyder. they still read the old python version. I changed the python path in the preferences in spyder but it gives me error that say: Error while finding module specification for 'spyder_kernels.console' (ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'spyder_kernels'). so, any one can help me??

hi i May I have a question here?
  1. I think there is a problem with main focus while working with run selection in spyder.
    -For one editor, the main focus editor option works fine.
    -In the case of two editors using a new window, there is a fatal problem with focus on the console after run selection.

  2. If you open the same "test.py" in the new window and enlarge the editor, the main editor and the new window editor will be enlarged at the same time. Each of these enlargement and reduction functions should be applied.

Hi.when I choose "go to definition" while the definition about the module,parameter in the other self_defined code document,it fails. How could I solve it?
hi there, is there a 32 bit of the latest version?
Hi - I'm finding that Spyder 4.1.5 is hanging for about 10-15 seconds on start-up. It's just before the window pops up saying 4.20 is available - so maybe it's something to do with Spyder calling the mothership to see if there's a new version and there's a delay in the answer.
Anyone else seeing this?
I've cleared PYTHONPATH so there are no user-generated Spyder modules loading
I have tried spyder --reset
Hi! I experienced some issues last year, trying to launch Spyder after updating to big sur. I actually had to downgrade to Catalina OS to get it to work. Any chance this might be fixed by now?

Hi! So despite my best efforts, spyder wouldn't update or install for some reason from my anaconda navigator (if anyone knows how to fix this, the subsequent problem is irrelevant), so I decided to download a standalone version of spyder 4.2.1 from the spyder website. I connected it to the anaconda interpreter, but now my iPython kernel is stuck saying "restarting kernel..." Cannot run any ipython code. Any suggestions?
Wyatt Newhall
Eh, never found what broke it, but I just wiped my anaconda environment and downgraded spyder and it works now

Hello I am having problems with installing pandas bc for some reason it isnt installed yet
Hey guys,
is it correct that Spyder IDE does not support Tkinter?
Spyder shows me error with compilation, but if I open python code (I run it) outside of Spyder, everything works.

thank you all in advance
hello, i've installed the recent spyder 4.2.1 via gui. I have a conda env that i'm trying to get spyder to use but it keeps rejecting it. I go into preferences, and change the interpreter from "default" to "use the following python interpreter: " my conda env even shows up in the dropdown, but whenever i choose it and click apply or OK, it says "Invalid file path"
I know it's a valid working conda env, how do i get spyder to recognize it?
it gives me the same error whether i use the drop down, or i use the gui file explorer to point it to the conda env python.exe

I installed standalone Spyder because Anaconda wasn't working very well (endless buffering on updates, wouldn't open spyder, etc). With the standalone version, how do I install modules such as Pandas and Numpy?

I was able to verify that I downloaded torch correctly by using the Anaconda prompt. I am using Python 3.7.9. When I tried to import torch in Spyder it says module is not found.

hi, i had created virtual enviroment thought terminal under the following command python3.8 -venv MachineLearning. then i install spyder-kernels on the venv by source MachineLearning/bin/activate. After that I tried to change the interpreter on Spyder but somehow it only connect to Python3.8.7 not the virtual enviroment where I had a lot of packages installed.

Hi everyone! I'm Juanita one of Spyder Developer's and also the community manager. We have been working on a Community Survey to get input from our users on several UX/UI aspects of Spyder. Here is the link https://t.co/JcJwEQRV0x?amp=1 for you to participate and help us make Spyder better :)
hello - I'm trying to figure out how to get Spyder to include the filename, path & date in a header when you print a file from the Editor... super-duper helpful if this would be possible
(Matlab does this and I take it for granted, otherwise you don't really know what you're looking at later on when you have the printed output)
I often found that "spyder" was unstable and didn't start, but it seems that Spyder's instability is related to the Python version, the Tensorflow version, and the Spyder version. I have come to understand that. When I created a conda environment with python3.7 and installed Tensorflow-gpu = 1.15, spyder did not start. (Translated by Google Translate)
Spyder version or Anaconda version

Hi, I have bought a Python book and paid for it, but the CD-ROM is currently useless for users because most Taiwanese students will scan the bar code and use the line to transfer back to the computer and your version Not provided, so that I wasted time on programming.. I did not learn well.. Please re-change in the book...Thank you.. Thank you for your painstaking efforts..
