Projects ->"New Subproject "... -> Import Project ....

I am trying to utilize QtCreator options to IMPORT existing project.
Using this sequence :
Projects ( select working "subproject " project ) ->"New Subproject "... -> Import Project -> Import Existing Project ....
The first stumbling block is in " Import Existing Project" option description
... project that do not use qmake ....
I am trying to import test project ( standard Application project ) made by Qt
Don't all standard Qt projects use qmake ??
Second and show stopping block is - I cannot figure out how to select the desired project from " Import Existing Project File Selection ".
After what I think is proper selection - highlight the "Import Project " in my test case - I push "next" .
Then "Import Existing Project Project Management" appears
And "files -> Add as subproject to project" is grayed out and blank.
Obviously I did not select WHERE to add the imported project.
Hopefully it is my wrong way of "selecting the project " in " Import Existing Project File Selection ".
As silly as it looks - I cannot find anywhere HOW to physically select the file / project.
The dialog you are using is described in https://doc.qt.io/qtcreator/creator-project-generic.html and is basically to use Qt Creator as editor for alien project types (i.e. not qmake, CMake, QBS).
I think what you really want to do is to add an existing project as subproject?
@AnneRanch Btw, which version of QtCreator is that?
My version (4.14.0) does not even provide the option to import an subproject.

I think in this case both this thread as well as the bugreport QTCREATORBUG-25282 are invalid now.

@aha_1980 Irregardless what version I am using - this reference does not show "Add existing project(s) " option.
Which brings back my original comment about "importing project " note about non qmake project. If that is the case - Qt IDE could be more user friendly and let me know I cannot do that.
Actually - from user point of view - both adding subproject and adding existing project should be an non-version dependent issue. Both options shlud be introduced SAME time. Something about QA comes to mind.
Thanks for contributing to the solution, appreciate that.
After more experiments I have better grasp on how qmake and .pro files interact when project with sub projects is implemented.
I have installed latest version of Qt, now I am stuck with changing the original version qmake to new one.
Hopefully when that is done I will see "Add Existing Project" option.
