Search/Find within Encrypted Notes Not working

Recommended Posts

I used to be able to use CTRL + F to search my encrypted Note (once it was unlocked) yet it doesn't seem to be possible now.

If the search index would include the content of encrypted notes (better the encrypted text), I would regard it as a pretty serious breach of encryption.

The search index is outside of the encrypted part, which means it would hold part of what was encrypted in the „open“ section. 

A good encryption must maintain zero knowledge outside of the encrypted segment. No search index, no hints, no nothing.

Legacy had a local search index, which probably was regarded as less critical than the server based search on v10.

Yes I totally get that @PinkElephant, but that is why I said "Once It was unlock" . In the past I have have been able to unlock my encrypted note, then click CTRL+F and enter my term and it would find the term in the note.  

I'm not expecting any returned results using the general search.
