Tag filters in notebooks

Recommended Posts

When filtering my notes by tags in my notebooks, the notes don't show up, for example I have a tag called "subject" in my math notebook in evernote, but evernote says there are no notes with this tag. This is happening in android and in desktop app

Just tried on iOS, which is equivalent to Android.

1st run: All Notes view, then filtered for notebook INBOX and tag 2018 :


2nd run: Notebook INBOX preselected, then filtered for the tag 2018 again:



Conclusion:Works on my iOS clients, I am pretty sure it will work as well on my Mac.

Maybe you tell a bit more about what exactly you do to make it dysfunctional. It may well be you miss a little step, and the filter is not effectively applied.

You could try this as an alternative:

Choose the notebook, as you have done. Open search (magnifier symbol)

type this into the search field:


replacing MyTag with the tag you want to use. Important: No space behind the colon. Hit Enter.

See what happens. In my little trial it produces the same 10 hits as before.

If this does not work either, it is likely the client has a broken search index.

You could try a logout / login before uninstalling.

After reinstalling keep the app open and wait the initial sync go through. It is this initial sync that builds the search index.
