[Qt-creator] Form Templates are compiled into Qt Creator ?

Hi Jonas,

I have been reworking quite a few of our wizards since Qt Creator 3.4, so I guess I killed the wizard that actually used those templates but forgot to remove the templates themselves. I'll fix that.

The Qt Designer Form Class is still a old-style wizard that has basically everything hard-coded in formclasswizard.cpp and related classes.

That wizard should also use new json wizard syntax eventually, but there are a few things in it that are unique and not yet possible in the json wizards, but I am not sure it is worth the trouble of enableing the form handling code that is used in that code in the json wizard. Why generalize something that is used exactly once?

Best Regards,

Win 7 (64bit), Qt 5.5. mingw, Qt Creator 3.4.2

The Dialog Templates shown
when Pressing File->New ->Qt ->Qt Designer Form Class

Those files seems to live in
Qt\Tools\QtCreator\share\qtcreator\designer\templates and
Enumerated in templates.xml

But even if I delete the whole folder, it is still shown in Creator ?!
and that seems to explain why adding a new one is 100% ignored and never listed.

So my questions are:
Can I add a new Form Template somehow ?

Are the external files something that was never fully implemented  or why does it include them
When it seems that Creator never loads them.
