      Description

      Please, add an option to skip the prompt in terminal that says "Press <RETURN> to close this window..." after application closes.

      I used to run applications with terminal, because otherwise program's output just doesn't show up in Qt Creator console. To do this, I tick this checkbox in settings: Projects -> Build & Run -> Desktop -> Run -> Run in terminal.

      But with the terminal option enabled, launching script asks me to "Press <RETURN> to close this window..." every single time, even if app shuts down normally.

      Hence, I propose to add a sub-option of the aforementioned "Run in terminal" option: a label "Wait for <RETURN> key:" and a drop-down menu with three items:

      1. "Always" (default)
      2. "Only when exit status is non-zero"
      3. "Never".

      At first, I thought only about first two items, but then I thought there might be terminal emulators which do not close their window even after their root child process exited.
