Issues with Qt-Creator context sensitive help

  • I use Qt Creator 2.7.0 (Windows 7, mingw) with several different Qt versions installed and have issues with the help functionality

    1. The search function in help mode does not to work (however, inputs in the index tab work as expected): Whatever search term I insert nothing is found (neither in exact nor approximate search). Is this a known problem? I am aware that I can use the locator, but it seems strange to have a non-functional dialog

    2. There seems to be no obvious way to filter context sensitive help (invoked with F1). As already mentioned, I have several different version of Qt installed and would like to see the help page related to the Qt version in the currently selected kit. Instead I am always presented with the help page related to one Qt version (the first in which the key word is found?). If such a truely context sensitive help is not possible, it should at least be possible to filter the context sensitive help manually, in a way similar to the method used in the help tab.

    3. The help pages do not indicate the Qt version to which they relate. Is there an easy way to figure out the Qt-Version ?

    Any suggestions to overcome these problems are highly welcome

    Would be best to send this to "Qt Creator mailing list": I think that from QtC guys only Tobias is active here on the forum.

    I would recommend "filing a bug report": . Bug reports are looked at by developers, while you will need to have quite a bit of luck for the relevant developer to see it here.
