Search in multiple PDFs simultaneously

Recommended Posts


I am trying to set up a Notebook with two notes. Each note has a large pdf attached. 

I would like to be able to use my iphone and make one offline search that gives me results from both notes/pdfs. 

I have already set up my ios app to sync/download that notebook so I could search those pdfs offline but I am still having trouble getting results when I search the notebook. I am able to search in each note individually but that takes forever and adds many steps to the process. 

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi.  Are these searchable PDFs?  If so, they should be searchable...though doing so from a phone screen may be less than efficient.  If they are not searchable PDFs then you'd need to wait a short time while Evernote's servers OCR the content to create a searchable index - an hour or two should see them searchable.
