    Question Renaming my .pro project file;


    I want to rename my .pro file to something meaningful. Apparently this is not possible via Qt Creator. I need to rename both .pro and pro.user in my folder. Is there other files and actions that I should take in order to avoid problems?

    No, I think that will do it. The .user file contains your Creator Project settings. I don't think it contains a reference (path) to the pro file it matches. If it does you might strike problems, but generic .user will be created when you open the pro file, so you could just delete it.
