@gazumped: Thanks for the reply. I'm willing to give up editing in the future under some circumstances. I'd be happy enough to "archive" notes from the tablet and leave them in evernote, even they're not editable at that point. I can indeed copy them inside evernote, and that works, it creates a copy which is "detached" from the S Note original. However, it updates the "created" and "updated" dates to now, which destroys my historical sort order (reverses it in fact). So that's not really an acceptable answer. I might be able to delete a note on evernote, and then restore it. It seems like deletions on evernote do not sync to S Note, and so deleting on evernote might break the link. Then I'd be free to delete on S Note without affecting the copy in evernote. I'll report back if I can get that to work.
