Moving an original note without losing aliases

I usually cut-and-paste to move a note from one location to another. However, if the note is an original with aliases elsewhere, cutting will delete all the aliases.

It is not clear to me how to move the original note. $Path appears to be read-only (although I seem to recall that in the past it used to be editable?)

Solution to my problem: reassign $Container… which I guess is like $Path, but not read-only?

If there is an easier way, please let me know.

Correct. More on $Container and $Path.

Or, just drag the note to the place it belongs.
