Dear Sirs ,

In "Lazarus IDE" :

In "Project Options" page :
In "Application Settings" part
    Title : project1    <----- "project1" is default and it seems editable .

When this field is changed , the new name is seen in the "Lazarus IDE" 
title .

Is it possible to add here a new field such as

Main Unit Name : Unit1 <---- "Unit1" is default and please make this 
also editable ?

In "Forms" page "Form1" is the default name and it is NOT editable .
In this page , is it possible to include an editable field with default 
to allow users to be able to generate projects and its components with
specified form names ?

During saving the project definition , Lazarus is asking a unit name 
with default being "unit1.pas"  .
When this name is changed it is reflected into program source .
Before unit name a form names is NOT asked .
After that Lazarus is asking saving the program again by supplying 
"project1" name as default
but not the new given name .

At present it is possible to edit ALL project related files and change 
all of these names , but
this is difficult and time consuming and error-prone .
The ability to give these names at the beginning is more easy .

Thank you very much ,

Mehmet Erol Sanliturk
