Keyboard input hangs at PIOHome in VSCode

Dear All,

I’m a newbe in PlatfromIO IDE. I use VSCode under Win10x64 + PlatfromIO IDE. Everything is with the latest versions updated.

EVerything works fine expect PIOHome page. Very often (50%) I can’t enter any value to text fields (search fields are there). For example, searching for a lib or creating a new project. I have close PIOHome page and re-open it.
At the same time rest of the tabs with text works very well.

What can be wrong?

Possibly that you didn’t search before posting? :stuck_out_tongue:

There has been over half a dozen posts about this recently… this response for the suggested workaround until Microsoft fix it. As the post says, workaround is to simply double-click the PIO Home tab when it loses keyboard focus.

VSCode 1.40.2 has been released, which includes the necessary fix. No more double click of the tab to regain keyboard focus needed! :slight_smile:
