Internal link was not updated when it was enclosed by '<>'

Steps to reproduce

  1. create a file with space in it’s name, such as ‘file name’ .
  2. create another file, and reference that file with [file](<file name>)
  3. then change the first file’s name: ‘file name’ -> ‘file name change’


Expected result

the link should be updated: [file](<file name>) -> [file](<file name change>)

Actual result

the link was not updated.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.8.0

Additional information

I also tried to link the file like this : [file](file%20name), and it didn’t work too.But if there is no space in file’s name, such as ‘filename’ and reference it with [file](filename), then it could be updated successfully.


Hello,any update here?

This was fixed at some point
