Optionally disable automatic update to text link anchors edits.

Default: true

After a note is renamed, the app automatically updates text links if (a) the text link's destination is the renamed note, and (b) the text link's anchor text is the old name of the renamed note. Though this is often the desired behaviour, but may in some instances not be desirable.

Thus, an option to disable automatic renaming is available in Document Settings: Text: Update after renaming. But automatic renaming may also be disabled by setting this attribute.

In large, well-linked document that do not use note titles as link anchor text, this option is of less use as it is essentially unneeded so nugatory background work for Tinderbox to be doing.
