RubyMine 2018.3 Help

Safe Delete

RubyMine lets you use the SafeDelete refactoring to remove files and symbols from the source code safely. Before RubyMine deletes a file or a symbol, it searches for usages and if they are found, RubyMine lets you check them to make necessary adjustments.

  1. Select an item you want to delete.

  2. Select Refactor | Safe Delete (Alt+Delete).

  3. In the dialog that opens, select necessary options and click OK.

  4. If RubyMine encountered potential problems, it displays the Usages Detected dialog. Proceed with the appropriate action.
