Use this dialog to rename a field.

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

Search in comments and strings If this option is on, IntelliJ IDEA will look for occurrences of the field name within comments and string literals in source code files.
Search for text occurrences If this option is on, IntelliJ IDEA will look for occurrences of the field name in the files that don't contain source code. These may be the text files, properties files, HTML files, documentation files, etc.

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