Important: Please read the Qt Code of Conduct -

Qt Creator 6 on MacOS Big Sur keeps asking for access to Documents.

  • I keep getting repetitive requests for access to my desktop/downloads etc from Qt Creator on Big Sur. Checking in settings it's already checked for access.

    Any ideas on how I can quiet this behavior? It even does it randomly when nothing is going on and Qt Creator is just sitting there.

  • @James-Hankins It has nothing to do with QtCreator. The tool is just trying to access restricted personal folders (iCloud tree etc.). As far as I can tell you should be bothered with it only once but depending on your system configuration and configuration of the QtCreator it might happen more often, depending where the files that QtCreator uses are located.
