Qt Creator rollback

  • Good morning,
    since Qt Creator version 4.13.1 is broken on Mac (you can't drag widgets in design mode, this applies also to standalone Designer) is there possibility to roll back to earlier version? I don't seem to have that option in the Maintenance Tool.

    The bug is recognised and fixed, according to the bug tracker, however is not included in release 4.13.2 - nor any either I could find.

    Any advice on this please? I am going to soon do all the overdue documentation and running out of things I can do without working Qt Creator/Designer...

    You can install the standalone, offline Qt Creator - here's an example link to 4.13.0.

    As far as I remember these offline installations can coexist with the one from online installer, so you should be able to install it without any need to uninstall "online" Qt.

  • @sierdzio Awesome, thank you!

  • if anyone's interested - 4.13.2 arrived, no joy, still broken. This is... worrying.

    It was picked into Qt 5.15 and the dev branch, so I assume that this is a problem in Qt itself which simply manifests in Creator. Could you verify that the Creator you got is built against Qt 5.15+?

    From revision 2ee1af2032

    The patch was cherry picked about 10 days after the release of 5.15.1, so you need 5.15.2 (which hasn't been released yet) to get it. You could clone the 5.15 branch and build it yourself alongside with the Creator of your choosing if you can't wait for it, which seems to be the only option currently.

    You may also try building Qt only and substitute your Creator's libs with the ones you'd built, but I'm not guaranteeing that's going to work, it may, it may not.

  • Thank you but I went along the advice from @sierdzio and am using separately installed Creator (older version). Will wait.
