Well ok even it does not do it as good as JB products I’ll accept this but watch the video link I’ve sent if you had time, you’ll then see what I actually mean

tooltips require you to reach your mouse and go over things wait etc..

I’m saying “we” because I\m also trying to use Qt, I’m also trying to make things better instead of denying room for improvement. And about my tone, I really don’t get it when critisim is always perceived as “tone”?

Well to be honest CLion does not have full support for Qt yet and I’d love to use that if it had. You sound like QtC is your child I’m insulting him/her? You maybe one of the QtC Devs but you don’t necessarily lose your dignity if you are not a good designer? you don’t have to be… you are a developer and that is a completely different profession on its own. I don’t understand why people gets so offended even it is not about you or your work?
I bet QtC simply hasn’t been touched by ANY UI/UX expert to this day and thats the problem, and thats all, there is nothing to get offended about this at all even if you are one of the developers.

The problem is; what I’m happy with does not exist yet...

See my previous posts about bugreport, it is not enough, you can not make a feature req. saying; “Please have an experienced team of UI/UX experts to go through all of QtC and make a complete makeover” ?
