#1083 closed enhancement (fixed)

It should be possible to set breakpoints before starting the debugger

Description

This is a common scenario that works in other IDEs:

  1. Set a breakpoint on some line in a file.
  2. Run the program until that breakpoint.

Padre requires an additional step of starting the debugger. From a user's perspective, this is unnecessary.

Setting breakpoints without starting the debugging session comes in even handier when the breakpoint is in a module. Right now, you have to switch tabs to the script that uses the module, start debugging it, switch back to the module's tab, the set the breakpoint in the module.
