I'm trying to rename a schematic sheet file inside Altium Designer 14 (in Project Panel).
The only way I can do it is renaming the sheet file in Windows Explorer and relink the file to the project. This is very time consuming and unproductive.
I found no way to do it directly in Altium. I tried the context menu, F2 shortcut and the File menu with no success.
Does someone knows if it can be done directly in the program? And how to do it?

As mentioned, you can Save As, which saves a
copy of your document. However, the correct way to do it is to open the Storage Manager panel (System-->Storage Manager):
From within the Storage Manager panel you can right-click on a file and choose "Rename".
I would show a picture of the storage manager but mine contains confidential files from my work, but I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out.
Hope this helps!

Right-click on the file in the Project panel and
Save As. But then you will have to delete the file with the old name, anyway.

it´s really simple, you just have to rename on your folder and then open the project again and it will be with the new name. if you want to change the name of a sheet into the project is the same process, when you open the project again you just have to move the sheet to the project again ;)

Files such as schematic sheets can be renamed from within Altium using the
Storage Manager window. The method for accessing the
Storage Manager was changed in Altium 18.
To access the
Storage Manager click on the
Panels button on the bottom right of Altium.
Then click on
Inside of the
Storage Manager you can right click your file under the
Project Files heading and select rename (or hit
