Hi Jason,

could you please file a bug report about issues like this? They do get lost on
the mailing list as soon as enough mails arrive to push this one down, but the
bug tracker never forgets;-)

Please provide as many details as possible in a bug report. Which OS are you
using, which buildsystem (qmake -- in this case that is very obvious;-), any
hint on how to trigger the issue reliably? Does "Run qmake" from the menu fix
the greyed-out buttons? What do you do to continue (restart Qt Creator,
close/open the project)?
