RubyMine 2018.3 Help

Finding Usages in Project

RubyMine provides different search options depending on whether you are searching for usages of a class, method, field, parameter, or throw statements, and extends a search for usages to the files in supported languages. For example, in CSS, XML, and HTML files you can search for the usages of styles, classes, tags, and attributes.

Search for usages extends to the Cucumber step definitions as well.

Explore search results in the Find tool window.
