Rename class wizard leaves old class behind when renaming class



When using the Class Rename wizard to rename a class, a new class is created and the wizard left behind the old class. As a result, the classes that were pattern inherited from the old class, now display as pattern inherited from both the classes (the old and the new class).

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Rename an Abstract class (that is, with a dash at the end of the name) to a Concrete class (that is, without a dash at the end) using the rename class wizard.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.


As a local-change, delete the old classes.
