How do I rename a project?

I would like to somehow rename my project. I can rename the binary project file, rename the app id, but my compiled app is still using the old name. How do I do this? I’ve looked all over xojo. I’m on a mac. Thanks

Hi Mark,

To rename the executable, click on ‘Build Settings’ and your operating system ‘OS X’ and in the upper right-hand corner is the Mac App Name… Change the name there.

The ‘Build Settings’ area is on the left-side of the IDE with the ‘Contents’ information. This is also where Window1 and other controls are kept.

Happy to help,


You want to rename a project because you changed your mind on the project name ?

Or you want to create a brand new project ?


thanks eugene!
