(Archived) Search modifier "any:" on notebooks/stacks

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to use the any: modifier on notebooks/stacks?


I am able to get it working on most types of data but it doesn't seem to care for notebooks/stacks. I need to be able to query across multiple stacks or notebooks if I have to.


An example is:

any:notebook:Development notebook:Helpdesk

This is on both Windows 5.0.2 and web version.


I've also noticed the web version simply doesn't like the "any:" modifier being typed in. I can see you can manually click and add the "any:" filter on the web version (which works) but I prefer to type than click.


Can someone let me know if:

  1. I'm doing something wrong
  2. These are intentional
  3. These are bugs

This is by design. According to the Evernote search grammar document (and experience), you must put any scope modifier (i.e. "notebook:" or "stack:") as the first term in a search. The "any:" term must follow any scope modifier if one of those is used. After that, any of the normal search terms (e.g. literal text, "tag:", etc.) can follow in any order.
