That is a nice stepp forward!

 

The legacy versions found still more stuff 

You searched for Worter and it found Wörter. And characters with accents where found when you searched for the basic character e.g.  e -> ë

Is there a way to also restrict my search? Some instances, I know precisely what Im looking for and I used to up them in  " " but it doesn't seem to work now. Im on IOS.

But "#"... I have used them to temporary tag (without using tags [sic]) stuff for today to go back to, etc., etc. -  but seems not to be open for search when used as "####" for instance . Any suggestions?

Use some other identifier as a prefix
We know "#" is excluded from the search index; other suggestions are    
"_"  (underscore)      
"z"

Thank you @Shane D. For me this is a small step forward. But as long as Evernote does not find parts of words within words (for example "eltern" out of "Gesamtelternversammlung") in plain text I will never feel the announced magic ("remember and accomplish anything!") with the search of Evernote. Do you have any insight, if this will ever be possible (like in every desktop search)?

Is there a way to search  a list of  the "remarks" I have made when using web clipper?  Often when I clip, I use the "remarks" field to remind me why or how  this clip would be useful down the road...  but then I can never find those remarks again, not even on the note itself. Tags are helpful of course, but  sometimes remarks provide much more specificity.  Can someone point the way for me, please.  I've been an Evernote user for years, but this still eludes me! : )
