Search function - Partial words

Recommended Posts



I've got a problem with the search function on the windows interface.

Evernote does not show results when the beginning of the words is not included in the search term.

For Example: I need the Note for "Noradrenalin" and enter the search term "adrenalin"

Now my Note for Noradrenalin will not be displayed in the results.


The same search works perfectly with the App on my tablet and shows the me the "Nordadrenalin" Note.


Is it a bug or feature?

That could be a feature - the search syntax already specfies that partial word searches only work from the beginning of a string - so " nor* " should work,  " *lin " should not.

There's a LOT of technology behind the scenes.  Have a look at Evernote's search grammar for the full details - https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php
