If I copy and paste a note, the newly created note will have its $Created attribute set to the creation time of the old note. It seems to me that $Created should indicate when this note was created. Do other folks agree?
This issue has already been noted and addressed (being tested in beta). I would presume that fix will be in the next public release, which will mean that for a pasted copy $Created and $Modified will now be set to the creation time of the copy.
