PDF search on new notes not working

Recommended Posts

EN cannot search/find text within PDF attachments on my last 3 notes.  The notes were entered yesterday.  Two of them were taken via Scannable and the last one was a scanned document.  All of my old documents/PDF's seem to be searchable still.  I receive the same results from either the desktop or iOS app.  Any thoughts??

Hi.  PDF files are only searchable if they are OCR'd by local software or on Evernote's server.  If you're relying on the server to index these notes have they been synced for more than an hour or two?  Are they searchable in Evernote Web if you sign in to Evernote.com?
