Java Local Development Environments Advanced Tooling Refactoring

Type migration is not available the way the video describes it.

When we try to do Type Migration (Sept 2019) we see the following tooltip on top of <Song>

Only fields, variables, method parameters or methods of valid type can be considered.

Has anyone gone around it by other than manually updating the names?

Also, as others noted a class is missing from the download.

HI Helmut,

I think I got it working...

Press ⌃⇧F6 or on the main menu, select Refactor | Type Migration.

found here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/type-migration.html

UPDATE: I got the 2nd use working by using "Rename" from the list of options under the main Refactor menu
