Refactoring 'Rename Symbol...' not working C++ win10 64

Post by TtijasS » Sat Dec 19, 2020 3:21 am


I wasn't able to find a solution to my problem so I will do my best to describe it.

Let's have this simple code (at the bottom). I'm able to use the 'Rename Symbol' on the 'main()', but the same function won't work if I select any other identifier such as 'my_var' or 'my_const'.

Process: I right click on 'my_var' -> 'Code Generation / Refactoring' -> 'Rename Symbol' ... then the scope window opens up and no matter the scope options simply nothing happens. Again, the same process works if i right click on the 'main'.
Same happens when using the ctrl+shift+h shortcut or when there is only one project in the workspace.

I also tried to assign a key combination shortcut to a thing called 'C++ | rename Local Variable...', but it also doesn't do anything.

IDE info: Codelite 14.0.0, 64-bit version for windows OS
System: Win 10 64 bit

Thank you for any kind of help and best regards, Tijas

Code: Select all

int main() {

    const int my_const {10};
    int my_var {};

    return 0;
