I have downloaded the QGIS documentation for offline usage, am I correct in thinking that the qgis.qch file is the one I need to open to view the documentation, using Qt Assistant?

I have a Qt installer, where it lists a bunch of packages to install but Qt Assistant isn't listed.

(i did check if this has already been asked/answered - as far as I can tell it hasn't)

QtAssistant is now included in QtCreator (I don't know if a standalone exist again).

Open QtCreator, Tools -> Options -> Help -> Documentation -> Add... and choose qgis.qch.

The documentation will now be accessible from the help pannel.
