Can't rename file

HELP: Knime keeps popping up this question, “At least one of the workflow or components affected by the renaming are still opened in the editor and have to be close”. How do i resolve this and rename my file?

Hi @jav and welcome to the KNIME community !

Usually, one cannot rename a file if the file is already open by KNIME (or in general by any other program). You would need to close first the file (i.e. the workflow) and then rename it.

Hope it helps.

Hi! What do u mean by its already open in knime?

As here in the snapshot above for workflow with name “KNIME workflow open in editor zone”, you would not be able to rename the workflow if it is already open in your KNIME Editor zone.

You would need first to close it before to be allowed to rename it.
