Scottat 0 Posted February 9, 2015 Share Posted February 9, 2015 I'm seeking a way to exclude recognized data while including textual data from the same when searching and have yet to find a good way to do so. Why would I want to do this? Web clips and notes with attached photos or scans of handwritten notes generate a lot of false positive results when searching. One can include "-RecoType:*" in the search box to eliminate all notes with any recognized data but that doesn't allow one ot search the not recognized, plain text note content. It'd also be nice if there was a way to correct recognizer hits when they are wrong. For example, when one searches for the word "Surplus" and the result set shows notes that contain handwritten notes highlighting what Evernote thinks is the word "Surplus" but is in fact some completely unrelated word, it'd be nice if one could click on the incorrectly recognized word and mark it as not "Surplus" or even better yet, provide the correct text that should be recognized there. This would allow for elimination of false positives on subsequent searches for the same word. Recognizing handwritten text and embedded text in photos is really cool, but the false positives are often hysterical and also frustrating, worse than Siri and autocorrect. Am I the only one who has this problem or merely the only one who hasn't figured out how to solve it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.Scott Turner Link to comment
