CLion Help

Rename Dialog for a Class

Refactor | Rename
Shift+F6

Use this dialog to rename a class or an interface.

In addition to renaming the class or the interface itself, CLion can also look for the usages of the class or the interface name. If found, the changes you are making to the class or the interface name can also be applied to these usages.

The 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.
