When a content element is renamed, Realm Works no longer prompts the user to perform a fixup of matching links within other content. These matching links are now automatically displayed with the correct name without the need for a separate fixup operation.
If the occurrences of the link are going to be automatically changed to the new text, can we get an option to disconnect ALL links before we change the topic title?

Sometime the topic title is being changed in order to prevent future linking (e.g. by adding the word "The" to the start, and this word definitely doesn't want adding to all occurrences of links to the topic).

Various options were added in beta 247 to change the behaviour of Realm Works, and these options are changing the behaviour by default.

This means that a user who upgrades is going to have to read the release notes in order to realise that they will have to go in and change several options to keep their current behaviour.

I think that all these sorts of options should default to the previous product default - especially if it is a per-realm setting when a user will have to go into each realm and find all the options to revert to previous behaviour. (Which is the case for the changed behaviour selections.)

On the "Content Display" preference panel, the currently selected "Label Display" option is removed when interacting with entries in the "Content Link Display" section of the panel.

Changing to a different realm aspect and back again, restores the indication of the selected label display (but again is lost when keyboard focus is moved to the content link display section).

How often is this really the case? Every time I've ever changed a topic's title I've wanted the links updated. Why would you want to do what you describe?

Because I do.

Many times I've needed to change a topic's title and break the links to it. e.g. a topic called "bedroom" that I'm renaming so that the name of the place appears in the topic title - I don't want "happy hunter bedroom" appearing everywhere in the linked topics.

Or, because I'll quite often have a topic with slightly the wrong name, and only after I have entered other information do I realise that I want the name of the topic changed - and I then have to manually go through each connected topic to remove the link before I can change the title of the topic.

Automatically changing the text that appears in other topics isn't always a good thing.

Ok. Different solution to a problem everyone who has entered published material or has a lot of generic locations. I just deal with the multiple choices for the link targets and choose the right one based on suffix. I can see not wanting that.

Has anyone tested to see if changing a topic title that is the same as multiple other topics changes all the links pointing to those topics?

Something I noticed in the latest build is that it is only showing me 2 options in Automatic Content Link Detection when I might have 3 or more defined.

Is this planned? Something I missed when I was setting up Preferences? I usually like to select between 3-4 possibilities.

I checked by stepping back to build 46 and it shows 3 on the article in question... on build 47 only showing 2.

Found it after a bit more searching... Auto Ignore off fixed it.

Still getting index out of bounds errors with the 247 version, and I'm itching to get that fixed so I too can bask in the glory of 64-bit!

If rob has health or work issues keeping him from posting, let at least someone else inform us about that. Even a "sorry, too busy, no update this week" from the intern would be better than silence.
