    [FEATURE REQUEST] Rename C++ Files

    We all got to this point:

    Hmm this class name sounds meh and doesn't fit our naming convention, better rename it.
    10 seconds later...
    <Project breaks due to invalid references>
    Dang it!

    TL;DR: Epic, please add an editor button that allows renaming C++ classes without breaking everything. I'd even code this on my own if someone can point me in the right direction.

    This is what the ActiveClassRedirects is for

    Rule#21: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.


      Yeah I know about this, but you have to set them up manually + they have the same drawbacks as normal AssetRedirectors. They simply workaround the problem, not fixing it.


        Every time I create/rename a C++ file I do it on explorer then I delete intermediate folder and regenerate project files... is the only way I found to do it safely.

          But what if you use the class as a base for Blueprint childs?
