Jump to anchor in the webengine based help neither works via F1 from the source code nor from the index links in the help view.
This makes it pretty frustrating to work with.

Consider adding something like this to prepare() to force the non-webengine based help viewer instead:
sed -e 's/!isEmpty(' -i qt-creator-opensource-src-${pkgver}/src/plugins/help/
This task depends upon

Have you reported the problem upstream? If there's an issue it should be fixed, not worked around by disabling features.

The question is if optics are a more important feature than functionality. Because that’s the only thing webengine contributes.
