[QBS] Adding resources to .UI files in Qt Creator?

I will try to describe a workflow with Qt Creator:
1. Use the Project wizard to create a new Qt Widgets Application project (qmake).2. Use the Project wizard to add a new Qt Resource file to the project.This step produces the following qmake construct:
    resources.qrc3. Add some images to the resource.qrs (these will be used as icons)4. Open the mainwindow.ui file (the default that was created) in Qt Creator Design mode.5. I use the "Type Here" feature on the QMenuBar on the Design surface/canvas (whatever it is called) to add a new QMenu item and then to add a QAction.Now if I select the QAction item and go to the property editor. I can select the icon property and click on the "...V" button to open a "Select Resource" dialog. Here I can select the desired icon from the resource and set it to the QAction item.
This is basically what I want to do with my qbs Qt Widgets project. I added a resource file like that: 1. Right-click on the project tree, select "Add New" then add a Qt Resource file to the project.2. Add images to the resource file.I actually moved the resource file to a Group item in the qbs project:    Group {        name: "Resources"        files: [            "res/imagepuzzles.qrc",        ]    }Now I want to do the same I've described in Step 5 above (to edit my MainWindow.ui in Design Mode and add resources from a resource file). Unfortunately "Select Resource" dialog is empty and does not display the Resource file and I cannot set the images from the resources this way.
I would like to know if I am doing something wrong or this is not yet supported in the qbs plugin?

I hope I explained it better this time. Thank you!

Also if it matters I use sub-projects construct:
Project {    references: [        "ImagePuzzles/ImagePuzzles.qbs",        "Puzzles/Puzzle001/Puzzle001.qbs"    ]}
