Perforce integration for string search/replace, method/variable renaming?

We are using Perforce, and it is painful to do operations like string search/replace and method/variable renaming because once the search results are displayed in IDEA's "Find" tab, it is still necessary to check out the files individually from P4 before proceeding with the operation. Does anyone know of Perforce integration tools, either currently available or in progress, that will automatically check out the affected files in P4 before performing the operation? Tried the Perforce plugin, but it didn't seem to handle this...

Thanks,
Kathryn

In the "Find" tab if none of the files are checked out then you can
checkout all of them at once using perforce plugin.

However the problem is if there is atleast one file in the list which is
checked out, then idea does not give that option. So I usually deselect the
files which are checked out already and then checkout all other files from
the top level menu, after doing that I select the earlier deselected ones
and run refactor.

Have you enabled the Perforce external tools? If so, even without the
perforce plug-in, you can just right-click from within IDEA and select
"Perforce | Edit"... really simple.

Class renames are still a pain, though.
