I'm not sure I understood all the problems you described with Nixnote 2. I know it's a beta, and crashes from time to time, but: My installation shows all links in note text, and the note link is shown when you click the small down arrow at the top right of the note metadata (right by the notebook);There is a "Copy" option on the "Edit" menu, and if you right-click on a note on the note list, you can duplicate or delete it. There's a "delete" button on the toolbar as well;Can't say much about the other issues you raised. As for Evernote, you seem to have tried every trick I had in my book. This was the point when I decided to give nixnote a try. Truth be told, I tend to create stuff from the web interface, and use nixnote to access if offline, mostly.
