    Default Wishing a toolbar in Qt Creator...

    Hi to all.

    I work with Qt Creator since two months, and I'm very fine with it.

    The only thing I can't do is to show a toolbar in Qt Creator that groups the editor/debugger actions: open, save, start debugger, close projects, ... Like in Visual C++.
    I must use the menu voices or the keyboard shortcuts.

    Anyone may help me?

    You can implement a plugin for Creator to provide such a toolbar. It shouldn't be much work. Although most functions which you mention are already there - on the bottom-left of the window. Personally I think adding another toolbar just takes up precious space

    on a side note, i think the big toolBar on the left side of the window is taking up too much of a space, it can be made a floating toolbar or removed completely

    You could probably move the buttons to the bar on the bottom of the window. This requires a more complicated plugin though.

    The left toolbar of QtCreator is taking too much of space for me. My projects have a deep folder tree so i need to expand that view, this leaves less space for my code.
    The real problem is that the creators or QtCreator thought that everybody would be happy with a fixed toolbar. Or they wanted to make their editor look different from others.

    Coming to your question of implementing a plugin for it, well i m too lazy for it . Somebody listening ?

    Well, if I must implement a plugin, how can I link one toolbar button to the corresponding menu voice?

    Alt-0 will collapse/uncollapse the file/project browser panel fairly easily, so it needn't be a permanent occupier of the space.
