Preventing the creator from auto switching to designer view

  • Hi,

    I am using Qt creator v4.3.0. Whenever I switch to a .ui.qml file, the IDE automatically switches to design mode. Due to several factors (mainly slow computer and heavy UI file), loading the file in design view can take a lot of time. Sometimes, I am working on code where I have to refer to .ui.qml files multiple times. Constantly switching to design mode is quite annoying, is there a way I can temporarily switch the "auto switch to design mode" off?

    Not sure if it will work, but right click on that file in project browser and select "Open with -> Plain text editor". Possibly the name for QML editor will be a bit different, I can't check now. Until you close the file or Qt Creator it should keep being opened in the text editor.

  • @sierdzio That did it. Thanks
