Re: Project save as


FWIW, the old generated files are not outdated — the paths in them are updated.

More likely than not the generated files aren't needed or are outdated because of the name change (for example having the old project name inside them). But if a large amount of files is renamed and copied I would like to have control over it when it's done. Going though the files afterwards is more difficult.
