Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-15 16:08:26 UTC
When renaming a folder containing link files, or dragging a link files to another folder, nothing happens.
Comment 1 Alan McGovern 2012-03-01 12:34:56 UTC
Renaming a folder containing linked files is still broken actually.
Comment 2 Mansheng 2012-03-11 13:07:21 UTC
For renaming folders, see https://github.com/mono/monodevelop/pull/168 for a possible fix
Comment 3 Matt Ward 2017-02-20 10:18:21 UTC
Pull request 168 was merged. Testing this it looks like renaming a folder with linked files updates the Link in the project file now. Dragging a link file into another folder updates the Link in the project file with the new folder.
