VS Code + Pylance does not find venv-installed modules while venv is activated

I use VS Code Version: 1.74.3 on MacOS 13.2. python -V returns Python 3.11.1.

I get the following error message: Import "django.shortcuts" could not be resolved from source Pylance(reportMissingModuleScource).

As you can see in the screenshot, the correct venv is activated and includes Django.

I checked also these threads: Import could not be resolved/could not be resolved from source Pylance in VS Code using Python 3.9.2 on Windows 10 and https://stackoverflow.com/a/65802367/2321643 but the suggested solution with reloading the windows did not help. Using Debug I can safely run my Django-application without any import issues.

What do I need to do that Pylance does not issues these problems?

Try clicking on where it says "3.11.1 ('.venv': venv)" (near the bottom right). It should bring up a little dialog sort of thing at the top where you can verify that the Python path is correct.

Check that it is using the correct Python path. It should be something like venv/bin/python3 or venv/bin/python assuming venv is situated at the root of youur project.

My issue was a bug, fixed and closed.
