You are using the right app. You need to put a tick in the show colomn. You can also click the neqw item button to add your own custom commands

You did not see the screenshot very well. Actually the main menu editor app does not list an item in the main menu so how can I delete it.

You may take a look into
/home/user/.local/share/applications
search for QT creator and delete if you don't need it.
QT is base for KDE apps. It might not be installed.

      Agreed. There is no Qt in the Applications menu anywhere in 9.04; how do we even access Qt at all? I'm searching all over for the executable, but can't find it.

     Searching the Package Manager, it looks there is a lot of Qt4 that was never installed by default.... possibly explaining why it doesn't show. I've just added about 28 packages, still downloading; I went through the examples and learned a little of the older version of Qt a long time ago and had thought I might use it one day. Isn't the full version available for programmers in some simplified update package????

Larry Jordan (larryjor) said : #6

      Downloaded & installed:

libqt4-gui
qt4-demos
qt4-designer
qt4-dev-tools
qt4-doc
qt4-doc-html
....

      Awe, c'mon, folks! These packages are pretty much ESSENTIAL! Why are they not included, at least grouped into some kind of programming/programmer's package kit? On a side note, I also found out some time back that something like the gtk-demo package isn't installed by default. Programming capabilities is one of the reasons I prefer Linux over Windows!

I don't think it's a bug, it's an option. Why should qt be on ubuntu desktop per default?
I guess if kdebase and related others are installed it will provide those libs also, anyway all those packages are offered in Synaptic.
