I'm fairly new to Stack Exchange and not very well-versed in IDE's. I'm struggling to set up the ArcGIS Pro Python interpreter with Visual Studio Code. I have ArcGIS Pro 2.4.3 and VSC 1.44.2. I'm trying to follow the advice on the below thread, but I cannot ask questions in that thread, only add answers.
So here's my question. I cannot find the ""+ Custom..." and select "Configure" location where I add the Python interpreter, as mentioned in the thread above. In VSC I can go ctrl+Shift+P and it shows me the current Python interpreters that the program already knows, but I cannot add a new location. In File-->Preferences-->Settings under Workspace I can search for Python and there are 147 settings for Python.
I tried adding the C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\Python\envs\arcgispro-py3\python.exe path under Python Path and adding C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\Python\envs\arcgispro-py3 under Pipenv Path but this hasn't changed anything in terms of the program understanding that I'm trying to add a new Python interpreter option.
There are so many settings for Python I don't even know where to start or if I am even changing the right settings. It's not very intuitive. Please help!
