royoftt 0 Posted March 5, 2014 Share Posted March 5, 2014 There is an Evernote Developers' article entitled "All things Evernote Search - Search Grammar". It's quite comprehensive. Here's the part that I think is incorrect: Matching literal termsIf no advanced search modifier is found in a search term, it will be matched against the note as a text content search. Words or quoted phrases must exactly match a word or phrase in the note contents, note title, tag name, or recognition index. Words in the content of the note are split by whitespace or punctuation. Words may end in a wildcard to match the start of a word. Searches are not case sensitive. (A wildcard is only permitted at the end of the term, not at the beginning or middle for scalability reasons on the service.) Multiple whitespace and/or punctuation characters in the quoted phrase or the note will be compared as if they were a single space. The backslash escape character ('\') may be used to escape a quotation mark within a quoted phrase. E.g.:potatomatches: "Sweet Potato Pie"does not match: "Mash four potatoes together"-potatomatches: "Mash four potatoes together"does not match: "Sweet Potato Pie"When I search for "potato" in Evernote Notes, I find both "Sweet Potato Pie" and "Mash four potatoes together". When I search using "-potato", the search finds and the deletes both of these phrases from the search results. I must be missing something. Perhaps I'm completely misunderstanding what they're saying. Link to comment
