  1. Yes, that's what I was doing. My search was bringing up 14 notes from my Archives notebook and I could easily scroll down and find the two starting with "David:" somewhere in the middle. No big deal for no more notes than that. However, I'm in the process of migrating old emails, documents, and LOTS of things into Evernote. I expect to have thousands of notes in EN before I'm done! And now that I've learned that I can't simply search for what I call the label (the first word or phrase in the title that ends with a colon)...it's forcing me to rethink how I want to organize and code m

  3. I don't understand why this isn't working. If you type this (no quotation marks), what happens? intitle:David What happens if you use quotation marks? intitle:"David" Both of these should work fine if the name is at the beginning of a phrase in the title. She's trying to include the colon in order to refine the search results to exclude notes that have David elsewhere in the title. (I think.) That is correct. And you are also correct in that it makes no difference whether I type intitle:David or intitle:"David:"...the search finds 14 notes, all with David in the title, but not ONLY the two
  4. Okay...not happy to hear this, but yes, looks like I'm going to have to do more with Notebooks and Tags. The only problem with finding this out (that I can't do an intitle search for only the beginning of the title) is that I've coded almost every single note I have in EN using this scheme...and it goes WAY beyond just notes for my husband. As powerful as Evernote is—and I think it's amazing!—this is a HUGE disappointment for me! Glad I only have 662 notes so far rather than thousands to "rethink". :-(
  5. Okay...that helped. But can I narrow it down a bit? I want to be able to search for "David:" at the beginning of the note ONLY. I tried typing: intitle:"David:" and that didn't work. Any suggestions?
  6. I am using Evernote 5 on a Windows PC and can't seem to figure out how to search for text in the title only. Example: I have a number of notes with titles that start with my husband's name...and his name is David. So the title might be something like "David: Strengths Finder Results" or "David: email thread with Sandy on 4/13/13" I do NOT want to run a search for all my notes containing his name (I have TONS!); only the title. So I want to search for "David:" in the title only. Can I do that? If so, please tell me how! Thanks! Sharon Hillam
