(Archived) How do I search Evernote in Windows 8

Exactly what is being searched? I have a note entitled "inventory stock plan". If I search for "inventory" on the normal PC version its there at the top of the list before I've even finished typing. On the WIndows 8 version I type the full word and tap the search icon and it retunds just 5 notes, and the one I want isn't there. The PC version returns over 40 matches on "Inventory" in the blink of an eye. Mind you, if I did get 40+ matches it might take a while swiping through the tiles to find it, but since the search seems to be disfunctional I can't be sure.

It should be giving you all 40 back. Based on your post in the other thread, you might not be downsyncing all of your content

I dread asking, but is there a way to get to Saved Searches in the Win8 app version? I am on a Surface RT so the Desktop version is not available to me. I'd use the Web client, but I also can't figure out how to use them there. I use Saved Searches pretty extensively.

Thanks for the quick response. Fortunately, Saved Searches are supported on my phone so I am not in tears, but it will make things heaps more awesome once you get it in. Let me now if you ever need any beta-testers. :)

Would love to have another beta tester :) You can post in this thread and Geoff should set you up:

How does one downsync all content? I am not getting (all) search results either...

Here are some tips here: http://discussion.ev...sues-read-this/

Are you using a VPN or any other type of specialized internet connection?

That link does not work.

As Peter said above - VERY unimpressed with the Windows 8 version. My life revolves around Evernote - thank God I bought a Windows 8 Pro version on my tablet and not the RT version or I would be miserable right now. Having to switch to my desktop in Windows 8 to use Evernote is annoying.

I clip lots of stuff online and send to Evernote - where is all the neat functionality to do that in Windows 8? Am I missing something?

Clipping is going to be different on the formerly-known-as-Metro side, because apps are sandboxed. Instead of having clippers, the general idea is to use the Share Contract.

With the new Windows 8 app, it's well... new. We're rebuilding functionality and playing catch up to the desktop app that has had many years of development.

 I swipe for the charm bar, hit search and I get a "This app can't be searched" message on my Windows 8 ThinkPad.  I'd add a screen shot but don't see an attachment icon above in this forum. I have tried this from the ALL NOTES screen and from within notebooks.  How do I search?  Thanks.
