Correct. All users need to have commercial license. It is not allowed for part of the team to use commercial and part use open-source. Even though Qt Creator is great, it can feel odd to pay for full Qt license and only use the Creator IDE. 

We have been thinking about selling Qt Creator separately, but so far no decisions made on this.

    A company has a few developers with Qt Commercial subscription who
    write applications in Qt for iOS.
    There are many other developers, who work on other projects and don't
    use Qt libraries.
    They talk to each other and sometimes even work on the same code.
    Is it still possible for the developers who don't use Qt libraries in
    any way, use Qt Creator IDE for editing and debugging?
    To be on the safe side, company plans to prohibit usage of Qt Creator
    IDE for all employees.
    I reckon this is a popular solution.
    If I understand correctly, Qt even sells a special option to ban all
    company IP addresses for open-source installer.
    But is it really so?
