Renaming Workspaces


A workspace consists of several files. They have the same prefix as the workspace, and have the extensions: .ALB, .ALX, .ALM, and .ADB

You can use Clone Workspace instead to quickly rename your workspace. Clone workspace will make a copy of your entire workspace with a new name in a new location. You can delete the original workspace after you've cloned it.

To rename a workspace:

  1. Use the Windows Explorer to rename or delete the workspace's files. For example, if you wanted to change a workspace's name from NEW_SALES to OLD_SALES, you would rename the files as follows:





  2. If there are any libraries associated with the old workspace name.

    • Select File > Workspace Properties.

    • Display the Libraries tab.

    • Select each library associated with the old workspace name and click Remove.
