Screen stuck while launching Qt Creator and Qt Designer on Mac.

  • Hi there,

    I just installed the Qt Creator 4.14.2 and Qt Designer 1.5.0 on a Macbook Air [OS 10.14.6 ].

    Whenever I try to launch them by clicking on the application avatar/logo.

    The screen will glitch and freeze for a good amount of time before the app opens up, and during this time, the mouse and keyboard will stop working.

    However, I find that if I open them by clicking the executable. They launch fine.

    I have no idea what causes this problem, but I could work with this solution.

    Just want to put it out there for anyone who had the same issue like me, as it was quite a pain.

    I feel like there should be a simple explanation. If anybody knows why, please put a comment down here. Thanks in advance.

    Happy Coding!
