Another missing item.  The pan feature to move the plot around in the plotbox.  The rotate feature does work.

Also, Rik reports that:

Another item to report, the Qt "New Figure" menu option doesn't seem to do anything.

In GUI using qt the plot appears, but it lacks the choices
available under fltk, such as grid lines, etc. And, the choices
under "file" to save or save as are grayed out. So, the only
way to save a plot is print(xxx.pdf") which writes the PDF in
the current directory as expected.

It is clear that:
1. The default directory for file choices should be the
   current directory for both qt and fltk.
2. The default name for the plot file should NOT be the
   current directory name. A better choice might be like the
   heading shown on the plot: "Figure_nn"
3. It would be helpful if the file-> save and save as
   choices were available in GUI/qt mode as they are for fltk.
