android Avanced Search with tags doesn't work for me.

Recommended Posts

I have a notebook with quite a lot of notes which all are tagged.

When I use advanced search to find notes via their tags it seems as if I can only view notes from one tag at a time.

If I include more than one set of tags the notes flashes by on the screen and in the next moment they are all gone and I get a message saying there are no notes based on my search criteria...

If I start over with only one tag included the search display the notes without any problems...

By design or anything I do wrong?

Hmmn.  Make sure all your notes are synced and uninstall/ reinstall the app?  Are you using "any: tag:<1> tag:<2>" if you want an either-or match?

I get the same behaviour when searching via Evernote installed on my Windows computer.

 

The search-string in my Android app looks like this.

 

notebook:"Dagboken" tag:"September 09" tag:"September 10"

 

As far as I have understood this should display all notes from both tags, right?

That would display all notes with both tags.  You need an "any: " in there to get notes with either tag.

Az gaz notes, use the following: notebook:"Dagboken" any: tag:"September 09" tag:"September 10"

One more thing though...

Is there any easy way to add this "any" directly in the GUI or do I have to type the search string manually everytime I want to search several Tags?

Thanks guys.

You could try saving the "any:" as a saved search,  or use a text expander to generate the full word from a code,  but for four characters it hardly seems worth the complication...
