Use the toolbar buttons to add or remove breakpoints, and group them by package, file or class.
The options depend on the selected breakpoint type:
|Option||Description||Types of breakpoints|
|Enabled||Select this option to enable breakpoints. If a breakpoint is disabled, PyCharm will skip it during the debugging process.|
|Suspend||Select this option to enable the suspend policy for a breakpoint. |
If this option is deselected, no threads are suspended.
|Python line breakpoints|
|Condition|| Select this checkbox and specify a condition for hitting the breakpoint. |

|Remove once hit||Select if you want the breakpoint to be deleted after it was hit.||All types|
|Disable until breakpoint is hit||From the drop-down list, select the breakpoint in question. The None option corresponds to the always enabled breakpoint. |
Besides that, you can also choose the behavior of this breakpoint, when the selected one is hit:
|On termination||The Debugger stops when the process terminates with this exception.||Python exception breakpoints|
|On raise||If this option is selected, the Debugger stops on throwing an exception. So doing, the Debugger stops only on the first place where the exception has been thrown.||Python exception breakpoints|
|Ignore library files||If this checkbox is selected, the debugger does not stop at the exceptions thrown inside libraries. |
If this checkbox is not selected, the debugger stops at the location in a library file, where the exception is thrown.
