Configuring Qt? (Qtcreator v5.11+) - the default compilers auto-detected but needing attention are a bit annoying on re-builds:

I know it's a common question to me by now, but specifically when getting into the Qt Creator, I've noticed that I have the option to build on some of the new projects, and that's not the issue if the compiler hasn't even generated a make file, the issue is that when your program automatically selects all the compiler kit profiles you CAN have on the Qt IDE through auto-detection, when there may be only one compiler put in use? I have only the MingW 32bit compiler I want to use by default, and I've selected one manually and placed it as the default configuration: Windows - the Mingw 32bit gcc compiler and on Linux simply the GNU GCC compiler.

When I start a new build from a downloaded example, I get the selection of all the compilers that CAN be run on the Windows Qt version of the IDE (Linux too) and have to unselect ALL of them at the top to select the only one that is currently installed, and the default manual selection (a direct, unaltered copy of the 32bit MingW compiler profile - and set as default) doesn't get selected. What am I missing? How do I make it only ask to build the default profile? (scratching my head, feeling like I missed a setting somewhere.)

It's nothing critical, just something that seems annoying unless you own a commercial version where you're preparing for massive software deployments.
