DawMatt 1 Posted January 27, 2015 Share Posted January 27, 2015 Hi All, I've run into an issue where an advanced search works perfectly on Mac and Android, and adequately on iOS but fails on Windows. I was hoping for some advice on how to resolve or work around this issue. Issue:I have a notebook for my todo items and active projects I'm completing. Active projects have a Project Definition whose subject is prefixed with "PD". Todo items that are to be done later have their "Updated"" date set to the day they become relevant. I keep a shortcut to a saved search that shows only the current todo items (not the PDs or future tasks) This saved search only works on some platforms. Steps:1) Create a notebook called _Actions.2) In the _Actions notebook create three notes. First called "PD: Test", second called "Current Task Test", third called "Future Task Test" and set its updated date/time to two or more days into the future.3) Create a saved search with the following criteria:notebook:"_Actions" -intitle:PD -updated:day+14) Add the saved search to your Shortcuts5) Open the shortcut to the search Expected Results:On all platforms, the shortcut should execute a search that returns only the note "Current Task Test". Actual Results:On Mac, the shortcut returns only the note "Current Task Test".On Android, the shortcut returns only the note "Current Task Test".On iOS 8, the shortcut returns only the note "Current Task Test". Please note If I exclude the "-updated:day+1" it still returns only this one note, when it should actually return both test tasks, so it isn't working 100% as expected.On Windows, the shortcut returns nothing. During experimentation I found that it would return any of my current todo items that contained the digit "1" in its bodyUPDATED 27/1/2015:On Evernote Web, .the shortcut returns either a "Communication Error" dialog or does nothing. Other search shortcuts work fine and other saved searches work fine, but this saved search and saved search shortcut fails. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue, or at least to work around it? I know it sounds odd to be working across 4 platforms but I do actually use Evernote on all of these every day and this issue is impacting my workflow. Particularly at work (the Windows system).
