ReSharper 2021.1 Help

Fix in Scope

Most of quick-fixes can fix the current issue under the caret, but some of them (for example Remove unused directives, Make field read-only, Remove redundant cast, and so on) can also automatically find and fix issues in a larger scope — in the current file, in the current project or in the whole solution.

Apply fix in scope

You can recognize such fix by a small arrow displayed next to it in the action list.

Scalable quick-fix

Apply fix in scope

  1. Set the caret to a code issue highlighted by a ReSharper's inspection.

  2. Press Alt+Enter or click the action indicator to the left of the caret to open the action list.

  3. Choose a quick-fix that you want to apply.

  4. Click the arrow to right of the quick-fix or press the right arrow key to expand the list of available scopes. If there is no arrow to the right of a quick-fix, then this quick-fix only applies locally.

  5. Select the scope for the quick-fix to apply and click it or press Enter.

All files where ReSharper applies fix in scope open in editor tabs. If necessary, you can undo all that was changed in these files with a single command: choose Edit | Undo in the main menu or press Ctrl+Z.

Fix inconsistent naming in scope

The quick-fix that fixes inconsistent naming, calls the Rename refactoring to make sure that all occurrences of the symbol are renamed in your solution.

Quick-fix for naming style violation

Therefore, when you choose to fix naming in a wider scope, ReSharper displays an additional dialog where you can select items to rename:

Fix in scope: bulk rename
