Hi Friedemann,

So can this be considered a bug and fixed at Qt?
Please note that even with all properties modified, which is not really a
problem, the result display is invalid and does not work like the input

At Qt forum post I uploaded two images that shows the difference between
the original and result UI files.

Thank you,
