      Description

      When I use the following syntax:

      qml.files = $$files(*.qml)
      qml.prefix = /qml
      RESOURCES += qml
      
      images.files = $$files(*.png)
      images.prefix = /images
      RESOURCES += images
      

      The end result is this:

      Which means that I need to resize the projects pane in order to see which file it's referring to. I think the absolute path of the generated qrc file is not important information for a user (it's available in the tooltip if needed), and it would be better to show just the file name, as occurs for regular .qrc files:

      For example, in the case of the snippet above, it would be qmake_qml.qrc and qmake_images.qrc.
