C Makefile project: how to keep .creator files in a different location?

  • Hi all, I am using Qt Creator as an IDE for a Makefile C application successfully.

    In order to do it, I have several Qt Creator files inside the project folder (.creator, .file, etc..). The project folder is a git repo, and I don't want to include them to the version control, nor I want to add them to .gitignore, so I am guessing that the simplest thing to do, if possible, is to move those files in a different location.

    Is it possible? How to do that?

    I tried manually by setting absolute path in .files and .includes files, but it seems that Creator is not able to find them.

    What is the issue with adding these files to .gitignore ? That's exactly the purpose of that file.
