Problems tool window

The Problems tool window displays problems that PyCharm detects in your project using several tabs.

You can select any problem in the window and press F4 or double-click it to jump to the corresponding line in the editor.

When the design-time code inspection is enabled, this tab lists all code issues found in the current file. The list is updated as you switch between files in the editor.

Report false positive

Inform JetBrains about inaccuracies in the dependency vulnerability checker.

Dependency vulnerability checker automatically scans your code to identify potential issues such as security vulnerabilities in your dependencies. However, like any automated tools, they may sometimes identify an issue that is not really a problem (a "false positive").

The Report false positive option allows users to report these inaccuracies back to the developers of the IDE.
