#8570 closed enhancement (fixed)

Moving/creating symbolic links outside original file folder

As described in!topic/cyberduck/QiWQ6LeER2I:

The function to create symbolic links is great. But when moving a symbolic links to other locations than the target item's folder, it doesn't update the (relative/absolute?) link target. It would be great if this could be fixed or if there would be a possibility to create symbolic outside their target's folder.
