(Archived) Exact search not working with 'a' character


Recommended Posts

I have a set of notes with the following titles:


h ii w a...

h ii w b...

h ii w c...


When I want to filter all notes containing c, I use the following exact search: intitle:"h ii w c" and it works like a charm. But when I type intitle:"h ii w a" I get all the above notes, including a, b and c. Why is that?


I've tried this in both Windows and Mac OS X client versions of Evernote.

The "intitle" is redundant unless you have that string in other places - a simple search should do the same job.  And I just set up a quick test with "h ii w a test" etc in the titles and got just the a, b or c results you would expect from a character-specific search.  Not sure what you're experiencing there,  but it doesn't seem like it's to do with the Search function..

Sorry for misinformation as it certainly works on Windows. It still doesn't work on Mac OS X though where I originally experienced the problem. I then came to work and tried testing the same behaviour on Windows machine but failed to notice that it works correctly. Now I'm back on Mac and I can certainly reproduce the problem.


Here are some screenshots showing the results for "c" search, then "b" (both working) and finally "a":
