While I don't have the message in front of me, I do recall a senior Qt developer mentioning that while manipulating stylesheets has its uses, they are seriously limited and can get you into trouble. In short they're a hack. They might be fine for prototyping, but if you want to do it properly, you need to learn how Qt styles its widgets and work with its system. Which is  definitely more difficult. The complexity is real. Whether it is worth it is up to each developer (I do use stylesheets myself for some things). It would be nice if the Qt documentation would do a better job of introducing Qt widget styling and how to get results quickly and efficiently without stylesheets.
