Is the search ever going to get better?


Recommended Posts

I find that the search on evernote is very very weak - for example - if you have a recipe that is 'Rosemary and Olive Bread' in the title and you search for 'Olive bread' it will be returned way way down the list - beyond entries that have both Olive and Bread in them more randomly in the text entry itself. I find compared to google and the like it's just not very smart. 

Am I missing a setting that will improve this?

I think you’re referring to the sort sequence of the results.

The Mac platform has introduced “relevance” but  otherwise there is no special sequnce; just the standard title or date

Probably.

I agree with both of the above suggestions:

  1. Sort by Relevance
  2. Use "intitle:" qualifier
  3. Also:  Use tags

Running Evernote 6.9.2 (454158) on macOS 10.11.6, I see this:
