Refactoring in XCode needs improvement

I'm used to Eclipse refactoring, and the refactoring capabilities in XCode compare to Eclipse are abysmal to say the least. Ok, I know Java is much easier to parse, and so the refactoring tools are "easier" to do, but I would expect that at least renaming a field of an Objective-C class would be done across the header and implementation files, and not just the header file. So instead I have to the use the rename dialog box, which of course is very error prone.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I don't see what that could be. I'm just selecting the field, Edit->Refactor->Rename.
