Stepping thru Python script via Cloud9 on the BBB

Using Cloud9 v3.1.2374 (BBB debian 8.4) I get the error,
“Language worker could not be loaded; some language features have been disabled”

And while the run button does seem to execute the python script, I don’t see an option for single stepping. Is this due to the error above? python -V returns ‘2.7.9’, so perhaps cloud9 is configured to use python 3 only? I love wingware but it would be great if cloud9 could work on the bbb!

Also, Cloud9 forces all saved files to reside in the /var/lib/cloud9 , /opt/cloud9 folder… is there a way to save files elsewhere, like in the home folder?
