We are happy to announce the release of Qt Design Studio 1.1 Beta!
Qt Design Studio is a UI design and development tool that enables designers and developers to rapidly prototype and develop complex UIs. Qt Design Studio is used by both designers and developers and that makes collaboration between the two a lot simpler and more streamlined.
Since the Qt Design Studio 1.0 release last year we have been working on bug fixes and added new features. The most notable addition to Qt Design Studio 1.1 is the availability of Linux packages and merging when using the Qt Photoshop Bridge.
On macOS Mojave the dark theme is now supported since Qt Design Studio 1.1 is based on Qt 5.12.1.
Besides many bug fixes and usability improvements we improved the Qt Design Studio documentation and documented our examples.
Qt Photoshop Bridge – merging
When re-importing from Photoshop to an existing Qt Design Studio project it is now possible to merge the existing QML files with the newly re-imported QML. This is very useful when the user made changes to the exported .ui.qml files using Design Studio. Added States, Timelines, MouseAreas or Connections can now be preserved when reimporting from Photoshop and generating the .ui.qml files.

When zooming the Qt Live Preview on Windows animations accelerate. This is related to QTBUG-59660. The workaround is to set QSG_RENDER_LOOP=basic in the run environment of Qt Design Studio. This issue will be fixed in Qt 5.12.2.
