ignatz 0 Posted April 9, 2008 Share Posted April 9, 2008 I use Evernote 2.2 to implement a basic GTD system (among other things). I have categories set up such as "@home" or "@phone" that will be familiar to anyone using GTD. In 2.2 I have search filters built into the categories so that I just have to add the "@home" text to any note to categorize it automatically in the GTD categories. I tried to set up a similar system in 3 using the saved searches structure. However, when I set up a search for "@home" it only searches for "home". The "@" character is completely ignored and thus I wind up with many notes that I did not want. I tried a similar search for ".home" with the same result. This search, then, is not useful for me. I have to redefine my labels to something using just characters, such as "ahome" or "zhome". This is not a huge problem, but it is very inconvenient. As more GTD'ers begin to try EN3, you will certainly hear more complaints. Can this search functionality be fixed? Why would I put another character in my search box if I did not want the software to search for it? Has anyone else experienced this? Link to comment
