ok, works fine

indeed there remain qt_ files

making it an options sounds fine to me; currently it somehow distracts 
and kind of visually interferes with the normal syntax highlighting

i admit that locating the cursor is somewhat problematic on a high res 
screen (maybe making the cursor a bit thicker helps)

btw, the windows versions mentions version 0.0.0 but i think that 
texworks is by now good enough to get a real number
