This option is disabled for the modules that contain a single source root.
Target destination directory
| When the dialog opens, the field shows the path to the folder where the file that implements the class to move is currently stored. |
The path is displayed in the following format:
...\<project root>\<current namespace folder relative to the project root>The path is updated automatically as you specify the namespace to move the class to. However, if you are going to move a class to a non-existing namespace under another parent namespace, IntelliJ IDEA will not suggest the proper folder unless you appoint a root folder for your namespace structure by marking the relevant folder as Sources on the Directories page of the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S.
