(Archived) Any way to filter saved searches?



Right, EN always shows all of my saved searches in the search drop-down list. I have quite a few searches, and I would like to add more, but it is becoming cumbersome to navigate the list.

It would be great if the list of saved searches could be filtered by what I type in the search box. So if I type "pre", I only see the saved searches with the substring "pre" in their title.

And while I'm at it, is this the right place to make requests like this, or should I be filing a tech support request? So far I've only been sending the tech support tickets for actual bugs, and not feature requests.

You are correct in thinking that you can't filter saved searches at the moment.

You can send a feature request via the support system, but Evernote staff read pretty much every post so the chances are they will notice what you have suggested.

To get around the inability to filter searches, I created 4 notes in Evernote and store my searches there.

Date / Time searches

People searches

Places searches

Things searches

It is not as convenient as the actual saved searches in the Left Panel, but there are some benefits.

1.) These 4 notes are easy to locate because I added a quick search in my Favorites Bar at the top of Evernote.


2.) Not only are the actual searches stored in the 4 notes, but I also include a brief description to help remember what it does

created:20090903 -created:20101014

Created between Sep 3, 2009 and Oct 14, 2010

3.) Editing and creating new searches is much easier now - just cut and paste. No need to re-read the Evernote Search Grammar Rules to develop a new advanced search.


4.) I very seldom use the Left Panel. It is shut down 95% of the time (F10) which gives more room for the important stuff which is the actual content in Evernote.


5.) Or for Windows users - http://www.bitqwik.com/

It lets me search in English for stuff like:

Notes I created in Outlook that do not have photographs and that were modified after last Friday
