QtCreator crashing in designer mode

      I wanted to learn Qt, so I have installed QtCreator 4.12.0 from the ArchLinux repos. However, when I want to add (or manipulate) elements in a QML file in the design mode, QtCreator crashes on a null pointer dereference. 

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a new project - QtQuick application, scroll template
        Choose Qt version (I tried both 5.12 and 5.14), leave the rest of the options to their defaults
      2. Switch to the design mode and try to drag and drop a QtQuick positioner in between the ApplicationWindow and the ScrollView:
      3. QtCreator crashes every single time on a null pointer dereference. The positioner can sometimes be added elsewhere into the hierarchy but when changing the hierarchy order later on, QtCreator crashes.

      GDB log:
