Method signature does not match signature of overridden method

Reports inconsistencies in overriding method signatures.


class Book: def add_title(self): pass class Novel(Book): def add_title(self, text): pass

Parameters of the add_title method in the Novel class do not match the method signature specified in the Book class. As a fix, the IDE offers to apply the Change Signature refactoring.
