New to v8.9.0, there is an option to disable automatic updates to all note $Text text link anchors when note titles ($Name) are edited. This is useful for those using zettelkasten or wiki type links where link anchors are exact target note names.
Default is ticked (true). The setting is inherited by $UpdateTextLinksAfterRename, so can be set differently per-note (or via a prototype).
In large, well-linked documents that donot 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.
