This is most likely a bug/lacking feature in QT's implementation. AFAIK we cannot do custom UI for these parts ourselves (yet).

  • Priority changed from Normal to Low
  • Target version set to Later
  • Assignee set to Christophe Chapuis
  • Category set to UI

We'll see if this gets sorted automagically with 5.8 upgrade.
