# Breakpoints don't work in Wolfram Workbench

I have created .m file and .nb file outside Workbench. Both files are inside single directory. In the beginning of .nb file I put

SetDirectory[NotebookDirectory[]]
Import["my_file.m"]


as it is intended to work standalone.

Unfortunately, when I run any function in notebook, while breakpoints are set inside Workbench editor, neither is triggered.

How to make breakpoints work?

• I never tried the Workbench debugger, but I thought you may find it useful to know that the builtin debugger works best if you use explicit commands to break instead of breakpoints (set using a GUI). mathematica.stackexchange.com/a/119962/12 – Szabolcs Oct 17 '17 at 19:57
