Description Svata Dedic 2016-08-08 12:51:00 UTC
See issue #250791; the refactoring (custom hint) introduces an identifier, which is (because of code style rules) imported. 

The refactoring preview then stops at the 1st change in the text because it does not know better: the ModificationResult does not give any clue which changes are really made through WorkingCopy API and which are automatically introduced.

In addition even the transformations themselves should be eventually able to classify some changes as "unimportant" - depending on the transformation semantics. Such changes could be then either filtered out or just not emphasized.
