(Archived) HELP: Searching Evernote in Finder



Not a question about Evernote, but hopefully some of you Mac users can help me. When I search Finder and try to open Evernote files that it turns up, the following happens:

  • There's a visual swoosh outward from the selected file, as if it's opening
  • The main Evernote window jumps to the front
  • The file doesn't open
  • The file disappears from the Finder search results

Here's an example search of my computer, for "zebra." In the before and after screen shots, you can see that the tried-to-be-opened file (the last of the Evernote files in view) disappears after I try to open it. Now when I search "zebra," even in a new search (closing Finder, etc.) the file doesn't turn up.

Does anyone know anything about this?

It seems to work the way it's supposed to in Lion 10.7.3. Visual swoosh and then the note is displayed in a separate window in Evernote. Nothing changes in the way the files are displayed in Finder.

But: I can't get search results if I search using the Finder search box. Only when I search from Spotlight itself. The results are displayed normally in Finder if I click "Show All in Finder."

I don't search Evernote this way normally but there seem to be a few quirks when running Evernote searches outside of Evernote itself.
