How to add a new Qt version to qtcreator?
I want to add a new version of qt to qtcreator. So I go to Projects->Manage Kits->Qt Versions->Add. This brings up a dialog asking me for the location of qmake. However there is no way of navigating to the location of the installation at /usr/local/Qt-5.4.1. Under 'Macintosh HD' for example it only lists Users, User Information, System, Library, Applications. No Usr.
So how do I navigate to /usr/local/Qt-5.4.1/bin/qmake???

In basic, you DON'T add a new Qt version to Creator.
In new releases they always add a new QtCreator version to a new Qt release, thus when you upgrade your Qt version, you update your Creator version. This has to do with the used debuggers/compilers etc.
I'm no mac guy, but is usr/local not the same as the folder Users? (the same stuff applies in Win)
You DO need to add a version if you build Qt from source - as I do - rather than download a prebuilt version which comes with extra stuff I don't need.
And no, /Users on the Mac has the user home directories in it...
Edit: I don't have a mac so can't help with the path, sorry. Can't you type it in the dialog manually? At least on Windows you can.
I closed down qtcreator, deleted the old qt version, hit 'add' and it came up with pathe to /usr and /usr/local... hey presto and navigated to the Qt-5.4.1/bin/qmake and everything is working!
