QtCreator locator exclude "build destination" folder(s)

  • Dear Trolls and Qt enthusiasts,

    When using the latest QtCreator locator I get results from my build destination folder and I would like to avoid that (mostly because I have a lot of junk and generated stuff in this folder). Is this possible to filter that folder out ?

    Aside from that I like it a lot. Thank you.

    PS: I also dislike that I cannot use the ² key mapping to open the locator in recent versions (I mean just let me override the text editor if I'm not using the ² anyway).

    You could use p for being in the project if that helps?

    Also in options you have
    alt text

    No sure what the bin folder is. :)

  • Oh thank you for that, "bin" is actually my build destination folder. It's like QtCreator thought it was a good idea indexing what's in there.

    And I have no idea how to make him stop.
