I have an existing kicad project that I’ve been working on, and when I first created the project I just gave it a working name, but now it’s time to formalize things a little so I would like to rename the project before I start doing commits to github. How should I go about doing that? Will it confuse kicad if I just rename the project folder, the .pro .sch .kicad_pcb files, etc? What about the project specific library folders beneath that (.pretty, and _library)? There does not seem to be a “save project as…” option anywhere that I can find, but maybe I’m missing it.
I simple method is to rename a KiCad project is to resave the project with a new name using the top menu “File” → “Save As…” command or shortcut “Ctrl + Shift + S”. You can then erase the directory of the old project name.
This does not work if you have already committed code to your source repository.
