How to plot outside VS Code?

I noticed that in the plugin Julia there is the option to plot outside VSCode instead of using the plot pane.

This in my mind should create a plot window as when I makes plot directly form the julia console (not inside the REPL of VSCode).
However nothings happens. The REPL stutters a bit when you try to make the first plot, just as it happens when you make the first plots in other situations, but then nothing happens.

Using Linux Here, with Julia 1.5.2

[Why I want this? Apart that I prefer to have a separate window instead that the plot pane, usually the plot pane is a bit slower/tends to not display everything it should (my scripts usually do plots inside a for loop at runtime, updating constantly). As a temporary workaround I am doing all my plots outside the VSCode REPL, that shows plots correctly]

I think you need to restart your current Julia process for that setting to take effect.
We’ll definitely look into making that a bit smoother at some point though!

I did indeed! I already thought that could be a thing, but sadly it had no effect.
