When I left-click ArgumentParser() in the code below and press F12, it takes me to the specific file/line where class ArgumentParser: is defined:

def init():
    arg_parser = ArgumentParser()
    args = arg_parser.parse_and_sanitize_args()

Just kidding! It used to do that, but I reinstalled PyCharm, and now it doesn't. Now pressing F12 just selects the root-level folder in the Project menu.

Which setting controls this behavior? Would I need to turn on one of the many keyboard shortcut "themes" to make this work? The F12 behavior is standard in Visual Studio.

I fixed this by navigating to Settings -> Keymap and selecting the Visual Studio keymap scheme.
