I recently had trouble using IDLE. I got fed up and downloaded the PyDev for Eclipse but gave up because it was a bit to vast for me at this point. I downloaded PyCharm and so far its great. Does anyone else use PyCharm? I'd like to find someone I could team up with.

Why give up on IDLE? I have used them all, (I totally agree, eclipse is way too much of a heavyweight for Noobs) and IDLE does exactly what you need. Until you are a better coder it's perfect. What are some reasons why you dont like IDLE?
Actually it's due to the fact that IDLE was tripping up when I used it. I'd run or debug code and then the syntax highlighting would turn off. I couldnt turn it back on without starting a whole different program. Even reloading the same saved program didnt fix it. Also, I tried running the professor's code in the editor and they didnt work. I started learing how to use PyCharm and I'll probably make the investment and buy it as my go-to Python editor. It's pretty easy to grasp so far even for a noob and it actually does what its supposed to on a consistent basis.
The only time i lost syntax highlighting with IDLE is when i forgot to save files with a .py extension

That could be the problem. I had assumed it was saving files with a .py extension. I may start using both editors back to back because I really like how PyCharm is laid out. I figure long term it will be a good skill to have.
sometimes in those programs you have to save it as .py to make the syntax highlight again!
