Rainer-RQ 2 Posted February 9, 2014 Share Posted February 9, 2014 Dear all, is there a way to dis-able the automatic drop-down and whatever-evernote-does when keying in a search term? To be frank, this feature introduced end of last year is destroying my 'pleasant' user experience with evernote. Whenever using the search function, keying in the first characters (or term) triggers a drop-down with the recent / saved 'similar' searches and makes my evernote stall for quite some time (recently for almost a minute) (c.f. attached snapshot). I can understand that this feature requires evernote to run through the notes and/or recent search history to help the user, and with a considerable number of notes this takes time. What is extremely annoying is the fact that I cannot even help to shrink the search (script) universe by keying in further search words as I am stuck in the aforementioned stall. I run evernote on Windows and have around 3500 notes spread over 10 notebooks. My primary notebook / most frequently used contains around 2000 notes. I suspected in the beginning that the 'symptoms' described above were related to this notebook and the fact that I hit a certain performance ceiling. However, the "search stall" has become a constant annoying feature in all notebooks. I really like working with evernote and would love to learn 1.) how to disable this search feature; 2.) whether there is a recommended not-to-exceed number of notes per notebook 3.) how to efficiently organise notes to avoid this feature or help the evernote search function to perform better. Thanks for shedding some light on me ! Servus from Brussels, Rainer Link to comment
