Qt 4.7.4 help files mangled

  • Apologies for reposting this topic but it should have been in this forum in the first place instead of under General and Desktop - newbie error! My "original post": is repeated below:

    I recently upgraded to Qt 4.7.4/QT Creator 2.3.1 from 4.7.1 / 2.0.1 on a MacBook Air (OSX 10.6.8). Strangely the bundled help files are mangled. Specifically it appears that the stylesheets are missing ie the help pages look like plain HTML with default formatting instead of the usual Qt documentation style.

    Indeed under /Developer/Documentation/Qt/Html there was no style folder yet the html files try to include style/style.css. Actually I have tried creating the style folder and copied into it the css files from the help pages on the Qt website. This almost did the trick but (1) the formatting was not quite correct (eg no margin around the body text) and (2) this had no effect when viewing the help pages from within Qt Creator – I assume this is because Creator references the qch files which, incidentally, are also displayed without formatting from Qt Assistant.

    I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the latest versions of Qt/Qt Creator but this made no difference. I assume that this must a configuration problem on my machine as I have found no references to this problem elsewhere [until the reply from my original post]. Hope someone has an idea what’s going on since, while not a show stopper, this problem is very irritating!!!
