      After updating QtCreator, it fails to start because of a bug related to the ClangFormat plugin.

      Observed behaviour:

      1. Try to open QtCreator after update
      2. Get dialog box with message: "It looks like Qt Creator closed because of a problem with the "ClangFormat" plugin. Temporarily disable the plugin?"
      3. If starting 'qtcreator' from the command line and clicking "Continue" in the dialog, the following text appears in the command line before the program exits:
      bash$ qtcreator
      : CommandLine Error: Option 'non-global-value-max-name-size' registered more than once!
      LLVM ERROR: inconsistency in registered CommandLine options
      bash$ echo $?
      1. If clicking "Disable Plugin", QtCreator starts just fine.

       EmacsKeys 4.14.0 The main idea behind this plugin is to provide additional actions a typical emacs user would expect. It doesn't claim to provide full emacs emulation. The following actions are available:
       - Movement [C-f, C-b, C-n, C-p, M-f, M-b, C-a, C-e, M-<, M->]
       - Mark-based selection [C-SPC, C-x C-x]
       - Cut/copy/yank (doesn't provide kill ring feature) [M-w, C-w, C-y]
       - Kill actions, which interact properly with clipboard [C-k, M-d, C-d]
       - Scrolling (half of the screen, keeps cursor visible) [C-v, M-v]
       - Insert new line and indent [C-j]
      IMPORTANT: Actions are not bound to any key combinations by default. You can find them under 'EmacsKeys' section in keyboard shortcuts settings.
      Also it's worth mentioning that EmacsKeys plugin forces disabling of menu mnemonics by calling Qt's qt_set_sequence_auto_mnemonic function with false argument. Many of the english menu mnemonics get into the way of typical emacs keys, this includes: Alt+F (File), Alt+B (Build), Alt+W (Window). It's a temporary solution, it remains until there is a better one.

      Unsure whether QtCreator uses clang-format installed on my system or contains its own version, so including the version from my system as well:

      bash$ clang-format --version
      clang-format version 6.0.0-1ubuntu2 (tags/RELEASE_600/final)


      If you need anything else, please just let me know!
