[Solved] Position of check mark on checkable QAction



  • I have an issue where all my checkable QActions on the Menu Bar have the check mark directly on top of the text. This was fine until just recently when I made some changes to the stylesheet of t he QMainWindow.

    I have tried changing QCheckbox spacing, margins and padding with no success.

    Does anyone know where the checkable QActions get their styling from?



  • I solved my issue with the check mark on top of the text.

    I added the following property to the stylesheet:

    QMenu::item { padding: 2px 25px 2 px 25px; }

    Where the padding appears to be just for the text in the order top/right/bottom/left. The last 25px is the space between the checkmark and the text.
