first ever note and search doesn't work ?!

Recommended Posts


Is search only available with a paid subscription?

this is my first time using Evernote. I was quite excited with the note taking potential until I tried searching. I first tried searching by Tag to see how it worked... nothing. Then simply by text... nothing. Using the web  client on 2 different windows machines and the iOS app, all nothing... I am honestly kind of staggered. I have only 3 notes and the search cannot return a single result for even the most basic searches. 

Am I doing something fundamentally wrong ? this is really not a great start.

The search will come live maybe after a little time. The indexing is done on the server, and there may be a queue waiting for execution.

The simple search of plain text in a note is not depending on a subscription - advanced search in pdf and pictures does.
