Possible to lock view versus edit per Note?

I often author notes and then they become finalized for future reference.

I'd like to be able to "Toggle Editor Layout" per note - so that the notes that are finalized default to a VIEW mode (rendered markdown) and other notes that are still in progress default to editor mode.

This could be as simple as associating the state of the "Edit/View/Edit-and-view" that currently exists to an individual note instead of a global state.

I'd also be willing to make this change if there was approval and someone could briefly point me in the right direction.

Check out the persistent-layout plugin.


Thank you very much, that's exactly what I'm looking for!
