    what is that sip.setapi line supposed to do? – Spacedman Feb 28 at 18:14

There's no need for it - just use a python 3 string.

See for example discussion on the internet such as: http://python.6.x6.nabble.com/PyQt5-and-QString-td5043297.html

 actionSelect = QAction("Select", self)

I suppose if you are converting a bunch of code that uses QString() you could define:

def QString(x):
  return x

and remove any imports of Qt's QString.

  • Thanks! Works as actionSelect = QAction("Select") – Bek7 Feb 28 at 18:54
