Symlink to manager files doesn't work (anymore)

I use symlinks to organize my files.
Recently the “directory scanning” functionality was implemented, thank you!! (see Global "Preferences" tab is being removed )

But the directory scanner does not support symlinks.

Feature request: support symlinks to .manager-files

Directory scanning has been implemented a few months ago. The only change that comes to my mind which could have break this is the transition from Mono to .NET Core.

My understanding is that .NET Core does not support Symlinks natively but the plan is to add it.


Strange, because before directory scanning, I symlinked the files myself. Anyway, I think symlinks should be transparent to the application, unless the application has some special reason to be aware of any type of links.
