[Qt-creator] Changing UI text

we also have to keep in mind that our screenshots are not "WYSIWYG" anyway because we support 3 operating systems (and theming).
As a rule of thumb I would suggest to update screenshots only if the outdated screenshots are confusing 
(e.g. showing wrong/non existing options). 

Kind Regards,

well, no, don't. if everybody actually started to update the
screenshots after every stupid gui change, it would soon take an hour to
clone creator (and i don't mean over a 56k modem).

that's much more reasonable for the screenshots part.

also, for mostly cosmetic changes (the threshold being "after adjusting
the docu to the new ui, the screenshot causes more confusion than it
clears up"), don't bother updating at all. it really doesn't matter
whether the button is on the left or the right, for example.
