I have a question about the use of Qt and its licenses because i'm so confused with it. I want to make an application (Commercial and its own source code as private) in C++ which uses Qt and its libraries for the GUI (I don't want to modify it) and I want to use it in the Open Source version (not the commercial one).
The Qt Core libraries use a LGPL license as I can read from multiple forums and the official website, so if I publish only the part of the Qt code (maintain the mine as private) and follow the LGPL restrictions, for example with a template like that: https://marketplace.qt.io/products/qt-lgpl-app-template will be any problem?.
For the other side, I want to make the GUI with the tool Qt Creator, because it is easier for me. But on the property website: https://www.qt.io/product/features?hsLang=en if you choose the LGPL license the Qt Creator is disabled except if you check in the filters for a GPLv3 license. But as I can read in their own GitHub repository: https://github.com/qt-creator/qt-creator/blob/master/LICENSE.GPL3-EXCEPT (in the Exception 1) and in other posts similar to mine: Using Qt Designer to create UI design for closed source application.
Can I use it for a private commercial application?.
(EDIT: I read here (https://embeddeduse.com/2023/01/06/using-qt-5-15-and-qt-6-under-lgplv3/) I can use the Qt Creator IDE to make my own files, I suppose '.ui' also are in this consideration...Without any restrictions of GPL, have I understood it correctly?)
Another question is...If I should follow the GPL rights in case of using Qt Creator...Can I do my application as private and commercial, but with the option to access the source code if you buy it, or the application should be free (inclusive if you don't modify the Qt libraries).
