Live rename/refactoring in current file only

Answered

Is shift+F6 (wih its modal window and searching through all files in the project) the only way to rename something in the file? I mean, I would like to rename all instances of the same variable in the current file only, without modal window and its extensive searching. I could swear, I saw in RubyMine something like LIVE renaming in Netbeans, but I could not remember how I had did it before.

Hello Jaroslaw,

Is shift+F6 (wih its modal window and searching through all files in the project) the only way to rename something in the file? I mean, I would like to rename all instances of the same variable in the current file only, without modal window and its extensive searching. I could swear, I saw in RubyMine something like LIVE renaming in Netbeans, but I could not remember how I had did it before.

Inplace quick rename is avaialble only local variables/parameters, because in this case we can 100% guarantee the accuracy of refactoring.
If you want to rename all occurences in file you can run action Show Usages (Ctrl+Alt+F7 on Linux). It will highlight all the usages in opened file and you will be able to navigate through them using right editor border.

It would be nice to have an "exclude non selected" option in the Refactoring Preview, which, when applied to a selected tree, excludes all other trees automatically.

 

Actual options when rightclicking a tree or subtree in the Refactoriing Preview:

@Alexlampe, is it in PyCharm? What kind of refactoring is that? In case of rename refactoring we have a corresponding request: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-124496

Oh sorry. Haven't seen that this thread is about RubyMine. Thanks for the link.
