      Description

      The problem I have is that headers that are not added via add_library add_executable and add_source are not displayed in the project navigation view. This is unexpected behaviour since from the programmers mental model they are part of the project. As far as i know consensus in cmake projects is using include_directory or target_include_directory to specify headers rather than listing as part of the source file list.

      I know this was introduced in version 6.0. As discribed here:

      https://www.qt.io/blog/qt-creator-6-cmake-update

      I see the point made in the post but it makes it hard to work on projects that donĀ“t use the 'qt-style' of managing headers.

      It would be nice if qtcreator could display the headers that are added by include_directory and target_include_directory.
