Julia 1.5 + vscode runs very slow

Running code in vscode using Julia 1.5 is very slow. Even when using Ctrl+F5 it seems that it is running as if it were debugging since at the end it prints in the terminal:

Julia debuggee finished. Press ENTER to close this terminal.

Is it something I have to consider in the lauch.json file or anywhere else to improve this?
Thaks in advance

Both F5 and Ctrl+F5 will run your code in debugger, hence it will run slow. I use F1 --> Julia: Execute File to run in normal mode.


Oh, that’s great! thank you!

Thanks! That saved my day.

Also I noticed that plotting does not work if I use Julia: Run File.
