Is it possible to search for an asterisk character in my notes?


Recommended Posts

I tend to mark important notes I take with asterisks before the line eg. "***DON'T FORGET ______"

I just recently realized that searching for these lines are difficult because Evernote uses the asterisk character as a wildcard in search, resulting in searches for spaces, commas, and special characters instead of JUST the string of asterisks

An example of what I'm looking for would be in Excel, to search for a literal character you precede it with a tilde (~) character, this allows the search of special characters without triggering their shortcut search function

Unfortunately. the search indexing drops all special characters, except for _ (underscore)

Also, as a wildcard character, it will match with all your notes
