Use this dialog to rename a directory.

In addition to renaming the directory itself, IntelliJ IDEA can also look for the usages of the directory name. If found, the changes you are making to the directory name can also be applied to these usages.

The name usages are assigned to different categories which correspond to the options which you can turn on and off.

Note that irrespective of the options selected, the search scope (that is, the places where the name occurrences are looked for) is always limited to the current module and the modules that the current module depends on.

Item Description
Rename <directory> and its usages to In this field, specify a new name for the directory.
Search for references If this option is on, IntelliJ IDEA will look for occurrences of the directory name in directory references in source code files.

Whether or not a string literal is a reference is defined by the (programming) language used in a source file.

Search in comments and strings If this option is on, IntelliJ IDEA will look for occurrences of the directory name within comments and string literals in source code files.

Note that IntelliJ IDEA remembers the latest settings in this dialog. So, each next time you use this dialog, these settings are restored.
