# Renaming note does not update references in YAML blocks

I use YAML blocks in my notes, and I include references to related or parent notes in the block (Zettelkasten-style).

Example:

## title: Child note title parent: [[Parent note title]]

However, if I change a note title, I expect that all references to that note to be updated. This works except for references contained in YAML blocks. So in the example above, changing the note title “Parent note title” doesn’t affect the link “parent: [[Parent note title]]”

This has been discussed other times. The YAML block is reveserved for dev\plugin use. Not for you own frontmatter.
