Soft Booting not occuring on Mac Pycharm?

Post by towelareaevade » Sat Jan 30, 2021 5:01 pm

I have not tried it on Thonny yet but I have noticed with Pycharm the Raspberry Pico is not doing a soft reboot. I have to unplug the USB and plug it back in to run the program. I have followed the steps provided on this fantastic step-by-step video (see blow link). I will try Thonny on a Mac later and tell you if it works or not.

Instead of plug off and replug in.... may be could you try to set the "run" pin to the ground.
It would be more easy and more efficient.

I picked up one of these https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pico-omnibus and a couple of these https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pico-proto to use with my Pico.

. . . and I have a ‘reset’ button, a general purpose button and a place to put my 128x64 OLED display

Plus, the option to fit it directly to the back of the Pico, if required

Maybe you want try ctrl-d in terminal/REPL, instead of unplug and replug the USB?
