Can't locate notes using Search

Recommended Posts

I have been ignoring the Evernote reminders to update for a long time now (maybe more than a month?). When I finally updated last week, my Search doesn't seem to be synced to any notes prior to this year. In order to find older notes, I have to scroll through everything in my list to find it. 

Tried updating to the latest version today to see if this issue was resolved, but it's not. I'm definitely searching ALL notebooks for full words that actually exist in my notes. If I type something in to update a note, then Search, I am able to find it afterwards using the Search.


Help? :(

You might try rebuilding the search index

Option Key Help > Troubleshooting > Recreate

I don't have a "Troubleshooting" option. Does that exist on Evernote for OSX? I looked through the other options, but don't see anything similar. 

Press the option key when clicking on the Help menu

Are you up to date on your Evernote version?
