(Archived) How to search for special characters: *, ?, @



I am using special characters in my note titles in a scheme to help my GTD management. The search function, of course, works great for alpha characters, but it doesn't seem to work for these special characters.

Any ideas?

Evernote's search engine works for words and phrases, and ignores differences in capitalization, punctuation, and spacing. This makes it easier to find your notes via standard searches.

You may want to stick with letters, numbers, and the underscore character to mark the content of your note for special searching later.

Special characters, at least the '@' character, work in tags. For example, I tag to-do items with '@Todo'; a search using 'tag:@Todo' will find these notes.
