QtCreator on my Macbook Air: Problem to select entries, when properties are showing comboboxes

  • Hi,
    I'm currently using QtCreator from Qt 5.0.2 on my Macbook Air with Mountain Lion. No mouse installed.
    The only problem i have is whenever i have to choose an entry from a combobox i have to use keyboard navigation. The combobox does not popup by using the mouse, it disappears.
    i insert a label in a form and want to change the horizontal alignment of the text. So i click on the appropriate alignment property in the Property View. A combobox is now shown but if i click again on the combobox to see the different alignment properties, the combobox goes away.
    The same applies in the signal / slot handling.
    Maybe it has someting to do with the gesture configuration on my Macbook Air?
    I would appreciate any help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Could you try the stand-alone Qt Creator and file a bug report against Qt 5 if that works? The stand-alone version of creator is build with Qt 4 still, so it is a nice way to spot issues introduced by Qt 5:-)

    If you have the same issue both in the stand-alone and the Qt 5 version of Qt Creator, please consider to file a bug against Qt Creator itself.

    The bug tracker is "here": .

  • That's it.
    This does not happen with the standalone Qt Creator built against Qt4.
    Thanks for the hint.
