Re: CopperSpice License Question

I have already: 1) I do not claim to be an expert. just showing what is working for me - Remember I am an mechanical engineer ... us knuckle draggers bludgeon problems into submission 2) Started a github project separate from any Copperspice project, that way you have plausible deniability. - what i...

Re: Where's the UI Designer?

Barbra .... not sure CS wants to be in the business of redistributing Qt Creator. But I do agree CS should make it easy to obtain. Getting it directly from Qt now a days requires "registration"... which just seems to open the door to aggravation. Just trying to maintain social distancing ;) Now I ag...

Re: CopperSpice License Question

I feel like I need to clarify my earlier comments, about Copperspice examples. The Kitchensink app is indeed a mashup of what seems to be 8-10 Qt examples.... so it definitely proves capability. My comment has to do with the target audience. In a previous life I had to motivate engineers to use Qt. ...

Re: CopperSpice License Question

I am hoping that seeing multiple simple projects built using libs that use Qt helps overcome the FUD factor. The VTK port will in my opinion be a HUGE vote of confidence. The kitchen sink as is just that, while it is impressive it is also overwhelming. People like small manageable bites. What might ...

Re: My Struggle with Qwt

Yes porting Qwt to Copperspice is one of my objectives. Unfortunately it is not a high priority, but probably next in queue. I work with a number of other developers using Conan, a C++ package manger. Conan is a high priority for us. So when I get time, building CS for Conan in Win 10, MSVS 19 is th...

Re: Minor request for the installer release 1.7

Yup the install worked fine. My only issues was that I would anticipate having multiple versions of CS over the years, so how do I differentiate them. Being the standard ignorant user and just clicking yes yes yes yes ... I got a dir: C:\CopperSpice where I should have ... at least for my taste crea...

Minor request for the installer release 1.7

I just installed the Windows package and the default location was: C:\CopperSpice

Since I anticipate having multiple version of CS over time may I suggest C:\CopperSpice\1.7 or something like that. Where the version is identified.

I know picky picky... thanks :D
