Speed up Rename flow

When renaming, it'd be nice if this list was automatically expanded.  Or give an option to "Always expand".  Or only expand the first entry, every time.  This would significantly speed up the flow and save clicks.

Thanks for the suggestion! Meanwhile, does the 'Right Arrow' key work for you in this dialog?

No it does not.

The right arrow first moves between "Select All", "Unselect All", and the "Next" buttons.
If I tab into the Related Symbols box, using the right/left arrow keys doesn't do anything.  However, the up and down arrow keys do go through the list (without opening the sub-menus).

Thanks - I've confirmed this behavior and agree that this is not very convenient. I've logged this issue here in YouTrack: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RSRP-363087.

Thanks for fixing this in the new release.

Going back to my original post, is it reasonable to auto-expand the top tier (root node), too?

So, from this screen...

It opens like this now:

But since a single top-tier is the most common case, it would be nice if it auto-expanded the top tier as soon as the dialog box opens.  LIke this:

Auto-expanding the tier requires fewer keystrokes/mouse movements, when I always open up the tiers to verify the variable name changes, anyway.
