Using Qt Quick Designer

We recommend that you use a separate visual editor, Qt Design Studio to open and edit UI files (.ui.qml).

However, you can enable the Qt Quick Designer plugin in Qt Creator for editing UI files. The functionality is restricted and not all Qt Design Studio features are supported.

To use Qt Quick Designer, switch to the Design mode when a ui.qml or or .qml file is open.

For more information about using Qt Quick Designer, see Qt Design Studio Manual.

Enabling the Qt Quick Designer Plugin

To enable the Qt Quick Designer plugin:

  1. Select Help > About Plugins > Qt Quick > QmlDesigner.
  2. Select Restart Now to restart Qt Creator and load the plugin.
