How does one delete and/or rename a project in Qt Creator?

  • I'm using Qt Creator 3.4.1 opensource on OS X Mavericks. I would like to delete some projects and rename some others, but I can't find how to do this in Qt Creator. I'm guessing it doesn't have this capability?

    Assuming I am correct, that delete/rename of a project is not something Qt Creator will do for you, how does one do it manually? It looks like, given a project "xyzzy", that I should delete/rename the directory ~/xyzzy and ~/build-xyzzy-blah-blah-blah. Any other places I should look? Obviously, for rename, it's a bit more complicated - I'd need to search the above two directories for files containing "xyzzy" and file names that match the pattern "xyzzy".

    I really like Qt Creator, but here it seems to come up short. It would be nice if it gave you a way to manage the projects it creates.

    AFAIK, it doesn't look like these options are there. In any case, you should check the bug report system and create a feature request for that (don't forget to check if there's already something about it)
