Managing Projects

One of the major advantages of Qt Design Studio is that it allows a team of designers and developers to share a project across different development platforms with a common tool for design, development, profiling, and debugging.

  • Creating Projects

    You must add your exported files to a new project that you create in Qt Design Studio. Setting up a new project in Qt Design Studio is aided by a wizard that guides you step-by-step through the project creation process, creates the necessary files, and specifies settings depending on the choices you make.

    You can use wizards to create projects for the desktop or embedded Linux and Android devices. In addition, you can add individual QML files, components, font loaders, and JavaScript files to your projects.

  • Using Git

    You can add the project files to the Git version control, so that the developers can keep up with your changes. Store and edit only project source files and configuration files. Do not store generated files.

  • Importing Designs

    You can import assets that you exported from Adobe Photoshop to a Qt Design Studio project and edit them in the Design mode to create a UI.

  • Converting UI Projects to Applications

    Qt Design Studio projects are useful for creating UIs. To use them for application development in Qt Creator, you have to convert them to Qt Quick Application projects that contain .pro, .cpp, and .qrc files.
