How to change a project name

Post by Vendimion » Fri Dec 23, 2016 7:06 pm

Hi Everybody,

My question is, I've created and started a project named "C9 Test" when a bought Elements 9 days ago and now is more than a try.
I would like to change the name of the project and the folder too, to let say "My Project". I've already made a "save as" > "My Project" to get the ".cpr" file with the right name but what's about the folder and the others files in it?? Can I just rename the project folder since I've already saved the project with the new name?
I assume that this might be an evidence for most of you but I've decided to go further with Cubase and I am learning the way it works.

Thank you very much for your advices.

yes you can make a new folder with any name ,just rename the present folder and then launch the project from the cpr file within that folder . in your previous sessions list try launching the project from the old address and it will not be able to find the files now you can delete that entry .

If you move the folder make sure that you archive the project first to make sure that all your files are actually in that folder. Sometimes importing a file does not always bring that file into the project folder, so some of your files could be in different locations. Trying to find them after the event can be a nightmare.

Menu bar at top > Media > Prepare Archive .......Then you can move the folder manually.

Alternatively you can create a backup folder from within Cubase

File > Backup Project > Create a folder where you want it > Name project and you are done.
