Tigersoul – I vaguely recall searching the forums (or maybe the wider web) to find the answer to your question. I seem to recall finding multiple answers, partly influenced by whether or not you're using the Mac App store version or the one downloaded directly from Evernote. In my case, as noted, the app is the directly downloaded version. Based on the guidance from the search results, I rummaged about my HD and found multiple folders with the "evernote" in the folder name. However, while the majority were a mere several kilobytes in size, one in particular had a folder size of somewhere north of 300 megabytes. Obviously this was the motherlode. In my case, I can drill down to the following path to find the folders which correspond to individual notes: Macintosh HD ▸ Users ▸ gary ▸ Library ▸ Application Support ▸ com.evernote.Evernote ▸ accounts ▸ www.evernote.com ▸ 3794981 ▸ content However, I decided to broaden the scope a little and instead used the following higher-level folder for the re-indexing (as described in GrumpyMonkey's link in the third post in this thread). This way, files such as catalog files would also be re-indexed and not just the individual notecards themselves. I don't know if this was significant, but it seems reasonable to suppose… Here's the path I seem to remember using: Macintosh HD ▸ Users ▸ gary ▸ Library ▸ Application Support ▸ com.evernote.Evernote I might be missing some small details – it was several weeks ago now that I went through the exercise – but I'm pretty sure that these were the key steps in the process I followed. Hope this helps?
I'm the original poster for this thread. Sorry for the delay in following up on the early responses. Thanks to GumpyMonkey's suggestion about reindexing the Evernote folder - that did the trick. Yay! It didn't seem to work the first time. I think I might have been too quick before re-enabling indexing of the Evernote folder. I repeated the steps a second time and left quite a bit longer before re-enabling indexing (sorry - don't recall how long; maybe an hour?) and Spotlight searches began working again after that. Not that I ever depended on them or used them much before, but I might endeavour to use them a bit more now. Regarding this ongoing issue that the more active members of this community have commented upon, I wonder if perhaps the fault's not entirely with the Evernote developers. Just maybe there's something that Apple could do that would contribute to making the ongoing reliability of these Spotlight searches more robust. Anyway - thanks again to GrumpyMonkey for the suggestion.
Upgraded Evernote both in the office and here at home (where I upgraded to Yosemite just a couple of days ago). Now I'm using the direct download of Evernote 6.0.1. (I was previously up to date with the last v5.n release.) I noticed the mention of being able to search my Evernote notes using Spotlight (mentioned here, for example: https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/104676256) and tried it out. The Spotlight search results totally fail to show anything. I've spent some time trying to resolve this myself, but haven't made any progress. Has anyone found success with this new feature? Has it "just worked" for you? Have you had to do anything to enable it? It sounds as if it should just work, so I'm a bit puzzled.
