      Description

      With clang tidy and clazy, for example, it shouldn't be necessary to customize each Creator instance by hand, but rather it should be possible to e.g.:

      • Export the settings and then import them from other Creator instances, or
      • Have the settings stored in the Qt Account and allow the user to sync them across each Creator instance.

      This applies to all settings: theme, snippets, shortcuts, etc.

      This can be done manually already by copying and pasting the .ini file, but that's platform-dependent and not very nice.

      If this is out of scope, then there should be documentation for how to manually share settings like the clang tidy configuration, etc.
