That prevents you from spotting things like different margins on 
different pages, causing widgets to appear to jump around. Being able to 
quicly change tabs in preview allows you to spot that. Also, which page 
is first is part of the design of the form, and I don't want to change 
the design in order to preview it.

So, you suggest actually changing the design of the form just to be able 
to preview it? Who says I want to use a combo box in my form? Perhaps I 
want to use a tree view. Or a completely custom widget. Or...

AFAIK, the arrows *are* overlayed. They do not take their own space. But 
if they turn out not to be, it's a good suggestion.


You like Qt?
