qt creator with no debug layout anymore

When starting debugging with Qt creator the debugging layout is lost
(this came with tumbelweed 25 June 2018, Qt creator 4.6.1)
Even when manually set Window->Views->Reset to default Layout the "debugger bar" below the source code does not appear anymore.
Hint: when deleting .config/QtProject, start Qt (and forced to configure) it works ONCE (layout appears). Close Qt creator. Start again - debugging layout is lost.
I have installed manually older versions down to 4.5.2 - same behavior!!
(no problems on opensuse 15) So it must(?) be related to tumbleweed specific ... but what?

Almost same here. After removing/renaming of ~/.config/QtProject/QtCreator.ini it's back but after a while it hides again.
Comment 3 Wolfgang Bauer 2018-07-02 12:49:43 UTC
This is basically the same as bug#1099589, it's a regression in Qt 5.11.1.

Should be fixed in the next Tumbleweed snapshot, the offending change has been reverted:

To avoid the problem, just use the "Quit" option in the menu (or the keyboard shortcut) instead of closing the window to quit Qt creator.

You actually don't have to delete the config file to get them back.
You can also just re-enable the corresponding views in the menu Window->Views.

It works now after the update

Hence that the debug-bar did not came back automatically - also not by manually restoring the "default view".

I made a backup of ./config/QtProject

let qtcreator make a new one

changed Settings\EnvironmentId=@ByteArray in QtCreator ini
in profiles.xml

<value type="QString" key="PE.Profile.Id"> ..
  <value type="QString">  ..

That at least let you continue to work and spend not too mich time with restoring profile setting 20 to 30 times ... depending of how many projects you have
