You don't say which operating system you are using.
I usually use Visual D which works great imo.

If I use vscode I use the C++ debug extension (don't remember 
what it's called).

If I debug outside of the IDE I use WinDbg, also has source debug 
support if configured correctly.

If you are on Linux I'm not sure, but I would go for the C++ 
thing probably.
