qiime keeps adding old commands whenever I use "!qiime tools import"

Hello, I'm currently using 2022.2 version, installed with conda

whenever I try to use "!qiime tools import" it adds back previous iterations that used it, this results in no commands being recognizable due to the extra text.

input: I'm currently using

!qiime tools import
--type 'SampleData[SequencesWithQuality]'
--input-path manifest.tsv
--output-path sequences.qza
--input-format SingleEndFastqManifestPhred33V2

(worth noting that just typing "!qiime tools import" then enter is enough for the output to happen )


I've already tried to reinstall qiime to no avail, here is what happens after I use "!qiime tools import" a few more times, I menaged to "reset" this string once but the middle commands were deleted

Welcome to :qiime2: @vgirelli!
There is no need to use the ! while in the terminal. That is only required within a jupyter notebook running as a python environment. Try the command again without the !.


thank you very much, that was the problem :grin:
