Specifying exact search parameters


Recommended Posts

I am unsure how to enter a correct search to get specific results. ie If I am looking for a note with 'king furniture' in it, the results come back with other notes containing the word 'worKING'.

How would I specify a search only this note?

I have tried king + furniture as well, with no difference.

 

Thank you in advance.

An exact phrase search would be    "King Furniture"   ; include the "

If you want to eliminate the notes with working in them the search would be 

"king furniture" -working

Did you mean "specify searching for the specified text"? Or searching for the specified text in a single note?

I continue to have problems with exact searches. For example. I just searched for "AT&T". Instead of finding the half a dozen notes pertaining to AT&T, I get hundreds of notes that contain "at" anywhere in the note. I searched for "Van", and I get a ton of results from words that include van anywhere in the word like ,"advance," "vance," to any notes that simply have a "V" in it.  And then I have a bunch that don't contain "van" or "v" at all, and more that misidentify hand written words as "van" when it's not even close. 

I thought the quotes meant it would search for exactly what's inside the quotation marks in it's entirety.

This is really driving me crazy. Help!

Search syntax is documented at  Evernote Search Grammar

Note: Special characters are dropped from the search index.  You can’t search specifically for “AT&T”,  it becomes a search for “AT T”
