Yes, is posible. You need:

1. Change the name of folder

2. Change the paths in Project.xml

3. Change description and name of project in all dcf files

Hi,

 

As Yury says in the previous post, it is possible to change the project name.

 

To edit the name in the DCF files you need to use an SQLite editor of some kind. There are various ones available to download online.

 

The table that contains the project name that needs to be edited is called "PnPProject".

 

Please note that doing the name change in this was is officially supported and the recommended way would be to create a new project using the required name and copy the drawings from the old project to the new project.

 

Thanks,

Dan

You'll need to modify all the dcf files (iso, ortho and etc) inside the project (4 or 5 of them). Here's a couple of free editor which i recommends on my blog

PnP Project is not file of project folder. It's the table which stay in each dcf file. You need to open ProcessPower.dcf file with any SQLite editor and modify the table PNP Project.

Hi,

what exactly means edit PNP table? I was following your steps but I cannot find my values (althought I can find names of fields that I'm looking for). All I can find is some kind of definition od the table but not the content of the table.

 

What I expected is to find my old Project name and then replace it with new one.What am I doing wrong?

 

(As a matter of fact Im trying to change name of one folder which contains drawings, I'm preety sure that this is the same problem).

PnPProject.png

Please forgive me if the answer is obvious, this is my first experience with the SQL base.

In your case, I think you are looking at the Design tab instead of the Data tab.

Thanks for the answer.

 

Do you have SQLite Explorer? On download page I can see only uncompiled files.

I don't use explorer any more since it doesn't show the guids right. AFAIK, sqlite expert is the only program that is free and shows the guids.
