Did you take a look at the docs to find out which features the Qt Quick Designer offers:


The docs are also accessible from the Help mode in Qt Creator.

Positioning items on screens (including anchoring) is explained here, for example:

I gave designer a shot last night and I agree, its unusable. I could not figure out how to do anything other than drag controls around. No anchors, etc.

The Widget designer is heaven. Couldn't we steal code from that and do Quick layouts that way?

Subject: [Qt-creator] Raise awareness: Qt Quick Designer's need for love


This is an email to raise awareness about the lack of love the Qt Quick Designer is getting since Qt Quick 2.0.

Qt Quick is announced as a great alternative to creating fluid UI's, and it really is (assuming the qml2puppet and QtC Designer are stabilized). I just list a few of the more severe bugs affecting the stability and breaking the QtC Quick Designer in ways that almost make it unusable.


And other not so severe but easily fixed:

Also Qt:

Can you please take a look, im tracking QtC master daily (GMT-6) and can help test any patches.
