Folder Renames not Reflected in Saved Workspaces

Once you’ve done the above, delete everything above this line.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create new sandbox vault
  2. Open Settings, go to Core plugins, enable Workspaces
  3. Add folder named Test folder
  4. In the test folder, add note named Test Note, put some random text in the body
  5. Open Manage workspace layouts, add new workspace named My workspace
  6. Close all open files
  7. Open Manage workspace layouts, load workspace named My workspace
  8. Verify that Test Note is visible as before
  9. Close the note window
  10. Right-click folder , click Rename..., enter new name: New folder name
  11. Open Manage workspace layouts, load workspace named My workspace

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]

Yes, I performed the steps above in the sandbox vault.

Expected result

I expect to see the Test Note as before.

Actual result

I see a new tab with no file, with the following text in the center of the window:

No file is open Create new note (⌘ N) Go to file (⌘ O) See recent files (⌘ O) Close

Additional information

This does not appear to adversely affect links between note, for they are changed as expected; it just does not adjust the path of files in the workspaces.

Sorry but this is not a bug, this is something we don’t support (yet). Please open a feature request. Thanks!
