Source analysis with custom wxPython

Hi everyone!
I'm writing a program using a custom installation of wxPython 4.1.0 on Debian 10 (Devuan actually). The wx directory is under /opt/wxPython-4/wx, how do I tell WingIDE to fetch its sources from there? Whenever I use "go to selected symbol definition" it points me to the official Debian wxPython 3 path (/usr/lib/python/dist-packages/wx-3.0-gtk/wx).
If it's relevant, I'm pointing Python to use /opt/wx-Python-4 by inserting it at the beginning of sys.path.
(I'm using WingIDE Pro

You'll want to add /opt/wx-Python-4 to the Python Path on the Debug/Execute page of Wing's Project > Project Properties dialog in order for Wing to pick up the python path changes. Wing can analyze the initial python file and pick up a few of the changes to sys.path but there are many that it cannot.
