Sparky 0 Posted August 2, 2013 Share Posted August 2, 2013 So hopefully this is not an inherent limitation or miss in product development and I’m simply missing something myself (like a wildcard indicator in syntax or setting etc). What I mean by the subject here, is when searching on any device, Evernote will not return a result if that search word is not at the beginning of the compound word item. As an example: Let’s say you have a note has an item you are searching for as a compound word, such as a website might have or a true compound word. Let say its "ThisWordIsACompoundFlagnard" within the note which is the subject I want to find. Now I know "Flagnard" is the most unique part of that and is the subject I want, and maybe I forgot what might come before it, so naturally I search for "Flagnard". This returns zero results. The search for the suffix side of any word (any grouping of letters that does not start the word) will return absolutely nothing. It is not until I search the beginning of that compound phrase/prefix that the result returns. I’ve tried all obvious forms of wildcards (*, %, ?, etc) to no avail and cannot find any documentation about the subject of standard broad searches (only found details about advanced restriction syntax methods). Anyone know about this as an inevitable factual limitation, or way to introduce wide inner word searching? I’ve submitted a support request but figured I would post to the forum as well.
