Description arataj 2016-02-01 16:10:31 UTC
Renaming does typically a predictable job with a single exception: renaming of a word within javadoc, which is not marked with keywords like @param.

As otherwise the renaming is reliable enough, this exception seems to be in many cases a single instance of renaming, where a human intervention is required. Yet, it is not apparent from the "review changes" dialog. Not only no distinction is made to what is in fact a guess of the refactoring system, but the former "rename in comment" became an even more generic "update".

Perhaps highlighting what is a total guess of the refactoring system would help.
