### Renaming an Applescript Xcode Project

To rename an Xcode AppleScript project, follow the steps below, based on my experience using Aleksandar Vacić's article. I needed to rename my serial communications AppleScript project. I simplified and clarified some of the steps in Aleksandar's article and made them specific to an AppleScript project.
• Close the project in Xcode.
• Copy/rename the folder into new name
• Open the new folder and rename the .applescript* and .xcodeproj files to the new name
• Delete the build folder
• Right click .xcodeproj and select Show package contents, which will reveal several files
• Edit each of these files with a text editor (TextEdit, vi, Vim, Aquamacs, etc.) and replace all instances of the old name with the new name. In vi (or vim), type :.,\$s/oldname/newname/g
• Load the project file in Xcode, select  Clean all targets
• Now build the project

* You'll need to rename whatever your source code file is, like .sch as in Aleksandar's article.
