This sounds as if you didn't even look at the image or read this part of
the thread. The problem is not with the style not obeying the HIG. The
problem is that even though the labels are set to centered layout they
really aren't centered according to the line-edit. This is very visible
with Oxygen, but also Plastique and Cleanlooks when making the line-edit
larger than the label. Also this is specific to how the formlayout puts
the label in relation to the lineedit. As I said the bottom in the above
picture is a hboxlayout which works just fine.

Going to do that right after this one is out.


You feel a whole lot more like you do now than you did when you used to.
