How to disable shadow build in new Qt Creator?



  • I recently switched to Qt 5 with Qt Creator 2.6. Everything is nice except the doc(which is not what I'm concerned now).

    The problem is the shadow build option, which appeared in the setup for project wizard is now missing.

    Before this version, when I uncheck the shadow build option, it would remember it and kept it unchecked for the next project. But it cannot do that now.

    Any suggestions?



  • Just specify your project directory as your build directory.

    The version after 2.6 has an option to set the default build directory. Setting that to '.' will effectively disable shadow building for all projects created from that moment on.

    It bugs me already for a while, is there a method to redirect the shadow builds permanently?
    At the moment the shadow build directory will be on the same base directory as the associated project directory. I would like to see that the base directory of the shadow builds at a place somewhere else (e.g. a temp directory)?

    What exactly is that I need to configure? Actually I looked for it everywhere, but without success.

    This change was commited to the master branch, which will eventually become 2.7.0.

    So in 2.6.x that can not be done, sorry.

    Fine, I can just wait. But really nice to hear that~

    Thank you~

    You can always "grab nightly builds":http://builds.qt-project.org/ or build directly from git if you are curious;-) We do appreciate people testing the master branch.

    Since most people in our office tend to use master builds they are rather stable most of the time, but bugs do -- of course -- happen in a master branch.
