Rename Dialog for a File

Refactor | Rename

Use this dialog to rename a file.

In addition to renaming the file itself, CLion can also look for the usages of the file name. If found, the changes you are making to the file 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 regardless of the options selected, the search scope (places where you search for the name occurrences) is always limited to the current entity (for example, a file, or a class) and the entities that the current one depends on.
