    I tried renaming but it just creates a new file with the same old name.

    Do you close FL first or leave it open? I closed it and when restarting it creates the old name file again and the other one is empty

    Yes I closed it. I just tried it again. Closed the program, rename the file, restart the program, the program asks to pick a project but the newly renamed file isn't one of the options, I choose a different one and it creates a new project file with the old name for the one I renamed. And if I delete the other renamed files since they are useless empty files, it just creates them again when I start up the program.

    Renamed Instances won't work. No way around it for now.

    Per Follow Liker Help Desk, you can rename Instances, but when you try to load them back, they won't work. There are many files associated with an instance. So even if you change all those other files, the Instance just doesn't work.

    The only thing you can do is make new Instances with the name you want. And, go back and delete the old ones that you don't want.

    It sucks, but I hope FL can let us rename Instances in a future update.
