Relations are not exported; Need full round-tripping

WHAT IS THE BUG

I exported my (small) graph and relationships like “Participants” in the Meeting Notes template are not included in the export. Humans don’t seem to be linked in any of my tests. This means information is lost even with pretty basic text-only formatting. Relationships should be exported and, ideally, recreated upon an import into a fresh Anytype database.

HOW TO REPRODUCE IT

  1. Create a new Meeting Note from template
  2. Add a Participants in that section, linking to an existing Human object.
  3. Export the graph/database into markdown
  4. Examine the markdown file (in text editor) to see that there is no information anywhere in the md file that has the relationship to the human.

THE EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

Relationships are exported, even if only as a normal markdown link to the markdown file created for the Human object.

Only mentions/links within the blocks are exported, on the other hand links created through the relations aren’t exported.
