      Description

      There are multiple reasons to do this:

      • it simplifies the rename dialog
      • renaming without updating the links leads to broken links and can put the wiki in a bad state (e.g. xobjects with a renamed xclass) so simple users shouldn't do this
      • a page can be used in multiple ways (linked from wiki syntax, used in a macro calls, used as class definition, its attachments can be linked or its images can be shown somewhere else) and explaining to a simple user that all these references have to be updated is not easy (without using technical language).
