Yea, they didn't change the interface so much between Qt4 and Qt5. But internally some things are different.

@chrisb do you mind splitting this thread up so that the QtDesigner stuff (although very important) doesn't hijack the original thread?

Seriiously, it's all good. It's kind of the challenge of forum thread discussions. I think your tangent is important and I'm learning from it as well. Simultaneously it makes it difficult to follow the original intention of the thread. Like I said, all good :wink:

Thank you Regis for your commitment.

Let's take a small step forward, maybe you know how to create new panels?

In his video, Ickby uses 2 panels that are not currently in FreeCAD:
  1. "Task View": This is the "Task" part of the "Combo View", but it does not exist alone.
  2. "Navigation View": This is a panel containing the different files as tabs.
What was the deal with this? i'm still confused as to what you are asking exaclty.

Is this the Task panel?

Ickby replied, I think you have to look at the C++ code side :

Some stuff is done on the c++ side, like splitting property dialog from the combo view or exposing all freecad panels to qml.

Yes I did. For now nothing makes any sense.

Wishful thinking but someone's gotta bump this thread :D
