Hi Sophie,

You can restrict the scope of refactorings using the "open environment" 
menu item in the class context menu. You may have seen it above 
"refactor class", "refactor class variable", etc.

This will open a new browser in which refactorings will only apply to 
the selected environment.

To restrict the scope to the current category, chose "package". There 
are other options you may find useful like "class hierarchy".
