It's a bit cumbersome, but if you right click a .ui file in the File
Tree there's a menu option to "Open With -> Qt Designer 4" (I haven't
found a way to make the designer from 4.x the default though).

You may have to adjust your project options for this to work, can't
quite remember. If the option doesn't show, go to Project Options ->
C++ Specific and the Qt tab. Check "use Qt for this project", "Qt 4.x"
and add the Qt4.x root path.
