A separate namespace field could still support nested namespaces.
The issue I'm raising is simply that namespace support is hidden. Like
someone suggested in QTCREATORBUG-18965, a simple solution could be to
set a placeholder text like "Namespace::Class" to the class name

But a separate namespace field would be preferable. Maybe label it
"namespace(s):" to indicate nested namespaces support, and add a note
that it is optional. A really nice feature would be to add an
auto-complete function to that field, or make it a combobox that is
populated with all namespaces from other files in the project.
