Search & Replace Across Notes That Preserves the File's Date Modified Value

I would like to be able to bulk update my notes with a Search & Replace feature, but not have that operation update the Date Modified attributes of the updated files.

For example, I would like to clean-up tags that exist in numerous files as I evolve my tagging methodology. Updating the Data Modified value when the file is updated is misleading when sorting notes chronologically, however, because that date indicates when the content was changed, which isn’t really accurate if only the tag metadata is changed.

The “Preserve Date Modified” feature would be turned on and off as needed, when bulk updates are actually relevant to the note content (as opposed to just the note metadata).

Is this a reasonable feature, or am I missing something?




Have you ever found a solution for this? I’m trying to do the same thing with Tag Wrangler, for a few hundred notes that contain wrong tags.
