ReSharper | Refactor | Move

If your project contains multiple resource (.resx) files, you can easily move existing resources from one resource file to another with the Move refactoring.

To move resource to another resource file
  1. Set the caret at the resource usage in a code file:
    or at the resource name in a .resx file:
  2. On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Refactor | Move or press F6Ctrl+R,O.
  3. In the Move resource dialog box that appears, specify a target resource file where you want to move the resource.
  4. Optionally, you can change resource name.
  5. Click Next to apply the refactoring.


If there is only one .resx file in the project, this refactoring is unavailable.
