Applications like Hook https://hookproductivity.com/ ( a link manager) create robust file links. You can change the directory name, the filename etc and the link will not break. I use Hook many times a day and it works flawlessly. The downside is that my links are hook proprietary and if they go out of business I am cooked.
The norm with file links seem to be unix and url file paths which break when the name of the file or the directory is changed. The fact that Hook links work means that the possibility exists of some kind of unique file UUID akin to Bear or Evernote note UUIDs. You can move Bear or Evernote notes around and links to those notes still work.
I can’t understand why, in this day and age, this is not the standard for file links, which assume that the general file/folder configuration will remain static until the end of times, and if there is a solution that I can implement today.
thanks in advance for your time and help
