[solved] copying/renaming a project
OK, so maybe a recommended procedure (if it’s not documented elsewhere, this might help someone later) is:
1. copy the directory structure.
2. delete the .pro.user file
3. change the build directory in Projects->Build
4. modify the name of the .pro file if desired (or edit the TARGET tag in the .pro file)
5. run qmake
You could make a doc note / wiki page for that and it will be documented…
