Bug Description

In the latest nightly: (5.0.0-rc2-dev-438-ge9ef555c6)

There does not appear to be a way to change the name of an entire project or save a copy of a project under a different name.
this is a slight problem because the cache library does not appear to be autodetected and after manually changing the filenames of everything you still have to go in and change to the new library.

aka, changing project names or creating a project offshoot is a pain and shouldn't be.
if there is a elegant way, it is not easily discoverable.

I like this feature request!

Ofthen a project is started without knowing the correct project name. After some time the project name is fixed and most of the time we are too lazy to rename also the kicad-project, since it is too inconvenient.
