Question on points_to_evaluate and checkpoints

Are using “points_to_evaluate” and starting from a previous checkpoint mutually exclusive or they can be used together? For example, I have a few iteration of successful run, each starts from the checkpoint of a previous run. Then someone suggest new sets of good parameters to try. If I use the “points_to_evaluate” to include those new parameters, will it ignore the checkpoint from the last run or it will include both the new parameters and checkpoint?

It turns out the points_to_evaluate is ignored when checkout point is not None. Therefore it’s only functional at the beginning of the very 1st try.
