I’ve got a standard uart setup with my esp32. RTS is connected to EN for resetting and DTR goes to the pin that specifies startup mode.
When I do an upload task from the vscode ide it works fine. I can then open the serial monitor and start my code but in order to do that I have to manually inactivate the DTR pin (raise it using ctrl T/D) and then inactivate the RTS (release the reset using CTRL T/R). This starts up my code.
This is a pain to do on every debug cycle. I thought the upload-and-monitor task would do what I wanted but it also leaves DTR and RTS activated and I still have to manually raise the pins.
Is there some way to specify that DTR and RTS should be turned off when the monitor starts so that my code can start? I will try to set up a macro but I doubt macros can trigger the ctrl-T commands.
