Bulk rename notes using regex search and replace, updating links

Use case or problem

I would like to be able to automate the process of renaming notes.

Proposed solution

The ability to apply a search and replace strictly to note names would allow for a lot of options. This would be akin to using PowerRename utility, but within Obsidian and with all links being updated.

A benefit would be that you could use certain sequences of letters or symbols as placeholders to be replaced with substituted descriptors fit correctly into a naming convention.



+1 on this one, and surprised that there isn’t already something available to do this.

My use case: I’m changing my “daily note” structure/naming scheme, but without mass renaming & relinking functionality, this takes a LOT of manual work.


Same here. Did you find any workaround for renaming your daily notes?
