I thought about that. But it means a workaround out of position. What about line edits in
delegates? Or in editable comboboxes, etc.? This can get nasty. Some kind of dialog-global
option would be necessary.
I did a lot of research and found several people having the same issue with the current
implementation. Alas I could not find a clean way to solve it.
So as a workound I finally changed the significantly complex dialog .ui files from QDialog
to QWidget, introduced a custom base class, threw away the QDialogButtonBoxes and added
the dialog buttons as normal buttons in a separate layout. This way the standardized
dialog behaviour and design is down the drain but for non-trivial dialogs this is much
better than frustrating users using <Enter> by accident.
A new option to disable the autoDefault feature for entire dialogs would be very helpful.
I considered writing a corresponding suggestion but I guess it would rot in the issue
