[Managing] Relax the length limit for name of note links

Postby Clairvaux » Mon May 22, 2017 2:07 am

It seems there is a 100-character limit for the name of note links (picked up from the note title).

I often run into instances where the note title is longer. The link name is then truncated accordingly.

I suggest the limit be significantly raised.

Ok. What limit do you think would be enough? 200? 500? 1000?

Thank you for caring.

It really depends on possible drawbacks. It would be a pity to slow down Cinta Notes because of that, for instance. I would be tempted to say : no limit at all, but I suppose there is one for a reason. So : 500 would be (I think) a sufficiently high limit that it would never be reached.

If 500 has negative consequences, I suppose 200 is a limit I personally would never reach in my own present use.

Ok, thanks, I added the task to the todo list. But since the list is really long, it may take a while till it finds its way into release - hope you understand.

Oh, certainly. It's a very minor annoyance.
