Rename dialog for a directory

Use this dialog to rename a directory.

In addition to renaming the directory itself, DataGrip 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 usages are assigned to different categories which correspond to the options which you can turn on and off.
