Hi, thank you for your bug report and example class. This looks like a duplicate of bug #46451 to me, so marking it and closing it as a duplicate.

There has been some work on allowing breakpoints to be set in classes by name or by method, but not yet by line number. I think the file/line-number syntax is needed for breakpoints from the GUI to work.

Possibly similar to bug #56860.

If I create a class definition type m-file, it appears to be impossible to toggle a breakpoint anywhere. See attached test case. Way to use this file:

>> clear all
>> addpath(pwd) %not sure if this is required for other OS.
>> [cat error] = Recipe.call_recipe('load_categories');

Toggling the breakpoint results in the following errors:

>> error: add_breakpoint: unable to find function 'Recipe'

error: parse error

Note: this is very difficult to work around, as such classdef file can become huge, with many functions and difficult to debug without breakpoints.
