Cannot type into library browser

From time to time I cannot type anything into the library browser. When I click into the search box, no blinking cursor appears. If I then start typing, nothing happens.

The only workaround I could find so far is to close and re-open Platformio IDE. This usually fixes the issue (but it comes back after a couple of minutes).

This happens to me all the time on Windows and Mac, on at least three different machines.

This is a known VSCode bug. Just do double click on PIO Home tab.

Is this bug being adressed by the VS Code Team? It seems to have been there for quite some time…

Yup, it’s been around since around July… and is being tracked here:
