  1. I would love this functionality as well. It would be so great especially for android, where searching for multiple words can be a pain. It's really hard to search for: "notebook:recipes tag:made tag:@jonnie intitle:Chicken tag:#Italy But if everyone in the house could just go to the kitchen tablet and select a link from a nice table like this: that would open a main page with yet another table Links on this last page would just execute a saved search. Search results would be displayed normally, the way they are now. My husband wouldn't have to browse through a bunch of tags or all those results when he searches for "chicken" (turns out 'chicken broth' is in every recipe!). Now I know there are ways around this right now. I could execute one of these searches right now, create a Table of Contents, and link it to the word sous-vide for example. However, that TOC doesn't get updated when I add new sous-vide recipes, so I would constantly have to re-create TOCs. Now there's a program called Filterize that creates dynamic TOCS. That works. It isn't cheap. The thing is I like the results of a search in Evernote; I like seeing the pictures in snippet mode. I like being able to sort my results by date created or by title. We already have the ability to save searches, and we have the ability to create shortcuts to them. Is it really a different ballgame to stick some of those shortcuts in our notes?
  2. Well, I don't use the web either and I took the two minutes it takes to login to the web, noticed it was beta (I don't remember ever turning that on), changed it back, exited, and my desktop syncing issues were gone. That's all I'm saying.
  3. Did you check to see if you were using the beta version of Evernote web? If so, revert to non-beta. It seems to have fixed the problem for me. Also, note that I don't use Evernote web. Ever, really. But as far as I understand, when we sync that's what we sync with, so issues in the web can easily translate as issues with the desktop version, especially where syncing is involved.
  4. dcon, now that is a neat trick. I can't wait to see it in action. For the moment, though, I'm not sure such heavy guns are required. I discovered that I was running the web beta and that was causing a whole bunch of syncing issues. I've since turned it off and I'm going to wait a week or so to see if I still get the crashes. I suspect I will not, and I've been 2 full days without one so far. (I've told the techs via my open ticket; here's hoping they advise others with sync issues to disable evernote web beta as a start towards troubleshooting).
  5. Brilliant. You are right. You have to complete the search by clicking on the magnifying glass on the keyboard, presumably to 'execute' the search. I can tell, I can just tell that I'm never going to remember to do that...
  6. Jefito, well now that is interesting. DTLow, Yeah, I'm connected to the internet. Just regular notebooks; not offline, not "On device". Proof: I just did another test with 2 notes: one with the word Fandower in the title, and one with the same word in the body only. Checked that my phone got synced, it did. Looked at the files in my Cabinet notebook on my phone: both files are there. Did a search: only the note with Fandower in the title appears. Oh, and it doesn't matter if I complete the search (e.g., "fandower" instead of "fandow"), I get the same result. Screenshots from my Pixel2, Evernote Android v8.11
  7. No title. That's part of the issue - I can't find the note to fix it. I selected about 2-3 months worth of notes and fixed those, hoping that would do the trick, but the log still shows this one. I'm really not tempted to fix my entire database - it just takes too long. And yeah, the number is completely uninformative. Doesn't match anything else that I could see in the log. Anyway, I'm sure i'll have to go back to support with this one. I swear if the front-liners tell me to re-create my database before they send anything to tech I'm going to scream.
  8. Evernote for Android v8.11, still with the search issues... This time Android is searching in titles only. I reproduced a number of times. Desktop search includes body of notes, Android does not. E.g., I searched for 202008 and the desktop shows 2 notes, 1 with the search term in the title, the other with it in the body. Android only finds the item that has the search term in the title. I've reproduced plenty of times.
  9. I've been dealing with this issue for the past few months as well. Sometimes I get 10 crashes a day (a crash being Evernote simply disappearing). I've had tickets opened and after dealing with the "um, did you reboot" and "oh, just re-create your database" first line customer service rep nonsense for weeksI finally got through to tech only to be told that there was a new version out, could I try it. The thing that is hard with this bug is that when you get it, you get it multiple times/day, multiple days/week and then for some reason you could be free of it for weeks. Then bang, it comes back. What I'm seeing in the log is also [ERROR ] [18256] [440] Unable to load note: uid=119218 Can't fix it using Ctrl Help fix note. If I knew which note it was I could remove it. How can I find out which note it is?
  10. Yeah, I do that too. Actually, I was sort of wrong. When selecting multiple tags it actually works nice in android because after selecting tag 1, the resulting list is filtered so there is less scrolling. You don't have hierarchies, but you don't need them at that point. I'm trying to think of what the issue is... whatever it is, I get a pop-up screen of my tags and that one has all of them in a flat list. I just don't remember when that happens. One feature that would be nice is the ability to keep filtering on a search result. I don't bother using search on my phone because there is no way to narrow down the results.
  11. but the hierarchy disappears when selecting tags as filters
  12. Look at you apple heads showing off....
  13. All true, but my scrolling finger can only do so much on my Android phone... 😀
  14. Yeah, that's what I do now but I have a few people who are only tagged in about 8 notes and I'd rather just stick @terry inside the note instead of using up a tag. Or at least that was the plan. To be consistent in my searches I'll have to either keep the tags I was going to eliminate, or change the tags to reflect whatever method I use in the notes (ie _terry in the note and _lucie as a tag, so that any search with _name will show up, whether in a note or in a tag).
  15. Ok, thanks guys. That's too bad for me, because I am so used to having @ precede a person's name, # precede a place and other such symbols I use throughout my tags for easy reference. Would have been nice to use them in the text as well. I guess I have to choose: use a letter like gazumped does or use the _ and hope Evernote doesn't change its mind.
  16. I agree with most of what you say except for the first sentence which I find too narrow as it excludes a reasonable user expectation. If a program includes a pop-up asking to select a tag and not all tags are displayed that, to me, is a bug. If instead they asked only: select a parent tag, then ok, but that is not the case here. It would be like asking users to filter by notebook but only displaying their default notebook rather than all of them.
  17. Not sure this is a feature request as much as it is a bug.
  18. I know that search excludes some characters from a search (things like @mary or @terry will be found when searching for mary or terry even though they begin with the @ sign) but how can I force the exact match "@mary" or "@terry"? I was using @mary and @terry tags but they are too infrequent so I decided to put them inside the note instead, specifically keeping the @ at the beginning to filter for the mary and terry I know rather than have to go through hundreds of web articles with references to mary and terry. Is there a way to force a search for "@mary" or is this also the result of the way Evernote searches and I'm up the creek...? Update: ok, turns out that if I use an underscore (_mary) I can search for that without have to use the exact match quotation marks. I can definitely go ahead and make these changes however I'm not sure I should invest that much time doing it if it turns out it is a fluke or a bug or something that Evernote will change. Anyone know why underscore seems to be the only exception?
  19. Probably should, although it seems like a rather unimportant one in comparison to other requests.
  20. Ha. Good guess. Not sure even I, collector as I am, can have 290 Adobo recipes!
  21. Right, that's where I saw it! You have to do a search and get that note under the search that says "Found notes with search terms in SEVERAL notebooks". When I click several I get the filtered list. I knew I saw it somewhere. Not sure why that same option can't be displayed when we search using tags. Maybe it used to be there and they accidentally removed it? (Now I really want to see which note has both chicken and pork in my Personal folder! - which, as it turns out, is an example of why I want that functionality)
  22. PinkElephant Windows. Well ideally I would be able to include -notebook:archive in a search. Or to the very least the list of notebooks would include the number of relevant results, ie NotebookA (3), NotebookB (0), NotebookC (14), then at least I could see which notebooks contain the results. Tags don't filter the number of relevant notes either (they include a number, but it is the total number of notes with that tag, not just the relevant ones). But at least it is possible to display only those tags that are relevant to the search results. Maybe I never noticed the notebook issue before because I only ever had about 6 notebooks (I would only have 3 but you notebooks are the only thing you can share, so I have to have 3 extra ones). But a few months ago I added a few more and now I know I'll go back to minimal notebooks and use tags instead, the way I always did.
  23. I select "All Notes" then in the search bar I search for: tag:somethingorother I get the list of results. Now I want to filter by Notebook. Seems to me that in previous versions (I could be wrong about this) when I clicked on the "All notes" button drop-down above the search box it would list only the relevant Notebooks - but now it just displays the entire list of Notebooks. I know I can sort by notebook but that isn't what I want. Is there a setting somewhere to filter by relevant notebook the way one can search then hit the tag button and display only the relevant tags?
