renaming a Project

I have just spent an hour trying to figure out how to rename my project. I have backed it up to a disk and to the desktop with the name i want but it still opens as NOVELFIXEDHOPEFULLY (from my last debacle) which is becoming very confusing. Save is an option but save as does not seem to be there. I’m sure it’s glaring me in the face but I can’t see it. Any tips welcome.

I don’t know if I have understood your problem correctly, but I just rename things in the Finder. Hope this helps, and that I haven’t got completely the wrong end of the stick.
