Cannot search Notes


Recommended Posts

I uploaded a photo of a page from a book yesterday and am able to search for words in it. However, I uploaded a photo of both handwritten notes and printed text and cannot search for words in either. Can anyone help with why I cannot search for content in my two most recent photos?

 

Thanks

Did you allow for enough time for the ocr & search indexing?

You can also export your note to enex format, then look at the file with a text editor.  You should see the search indexing at the bottom.

How long does it usually take for the OCR & Search Indexing to take affect?

It depends.  Minutes if there are no other entries in the queue.  
I usually give it a day before I see it as a problem

>>Also, what is the second option you listed?

Please ignore.  
At one time I could actually look at the search results in the export file
