I am not happy with search. It is a very powerful tool but loses a lot when the following are treated equally. ☑test ... same results as test or ... #test..... I've found this to be true on the following platforms: desktop, web, iPad. This is true of almost all extended characters or punctuation. I use tags extensively but there are times I want to tag an item without using a tag (I don't want 1000's of tags to organize or sort). I tried using various characters but Evernote search ignores them. So I cannot set up some special collection like ☑photography. I can do this in OneNote. In Evernote, if I search on ☑photography, I get everything with photography versus a few that I want to see. Yes, I could use tags but I already have a tag system set up to leverage GTD and some general reference categories. I effectively am looking for a separate sub-tag or category system. This will keep me from being overwhelmed in tags. The more I use Evernote the more I find this a major problem. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to find something in thousands of notes that you know is there, but you have to look at 100's instead of maybe 10 or 12. Any suggestions? Is there a list of special characters I could use (I only need maybe 3-6)? Is this something that is planned to be changed in future releases?
