Use case or problem
When one links (
wikilinks) to another page (
[[Some page]]) and that page is renamed, all links pointing to it are updated to match the new title. Great.
When one does the same to a section within the current file (e.g.
[[# Section]]), links do not get updated. In fact, they don’t even show as broken; they simply stop working.
Extend the link update feature to also apply to section links.

This could be related but it’s not even filled all the way:
Rename headings from the links.
Another idea for this would be to make a way to refactor a heading into an new note and in opposite direction. Like when we refactor the content of a heading it automatically update all the links to that heading to a new note. That would be make the natural evolution and expansion of a note so much smoother.
I think this is the same as:
Also related: updating backlinks to a linked block when it is cut from one note and pasted into a different note. Not sure why this one went to the feature archive.
Say I have 4 notes, Notes W, X, Y, and Z.
Note W and Note X have a block reference to a block in Note Y.
I cut the referenced block from Note Y and paste it into Note Z.
I want the references in Note W and Note X to be auto-updated to the block’s new location in Note Z.
Block references are very useful, but brittle. Currently when refactoring notes, you have to do the above process manually.
I could not find an existing feature request for this, but this thread has some related discussion:
