Searching by tag only listing a fraction of notes

I am searching by tag on my PC this morning, Everywhere, and it only lists 14 notes. There should be a 110 notes!

 

I tried another tag, one of my oldest tags, and it said 0 notes. There should be hundreds.

 

I've spent almost an hour on this issue. As I posted on another thread last week, I spent a lot of time on another Evernote issue last week or week before last. It's causing me to lose time rather than be productive.

Try a search on the web version and then switch back to the local app.  Evernote still seem to be working on servers and it's causing some features to run slowly...

Oups - a new view to the problem. I thought it's a problem of recalculating the local index.
But in this case (list of old and unchanged notes) neither explanation seems to fit: Index on server site should be complete since ever...

If this operation (listing notes by tags) is calculated on server site, it make EN unusable without an iNet connection.

Only if they update new note indices into a steadily growing file - more efficient (usually) to replace old indexes with new ones.  Slow replacements would be an issue.

only if you depend solely on tag searches.  Assigning tags should still be possible,  and there are many other ways to find notes...

PC version still not working. Preschool charged us even though we told us we were done. Searching a tag for the preschool name, so I can find the old contract, only gave me 3 results. What a pain. I'll use the web version. Or pull up my legacy version.

Well then, the data is in your server account; it's just not arriving on your PC.  If you haven't, I'd try logging out of Evernote on the PC, and disabling the option to save your local data.  Then log back in on your PC and give your PC plenty of time to download a new copy of your database.

Or you can do evernote-backup -- to force update everything and then hopefully find notes by tag (yes, that's sarcasm).
