[[Link to other document]] links break when you change the original note's title

If you use the feature to link to another note with the `[[Title of note]]` syntax, you should maybe be warned if you change the original note’s title. Or maybe the linking note should change automatically to reflect the new title.

    yes, this is a possible improvement to the note linking. We'll see what we can do.

    I often run into this issue I often change note titles and use wikilinks frequently.

    Since my current note count is small, it is still manageable to fix broken links, but I worry as my notes grow, this will be harder to manage by hand.
