  1. Are you using it in a saved search shortcut? See the two attached screenshots. One is V10 on Android, the other is in Windows. The Windows use of the shortcut finds 4 notes as it should. The Android use of the same shortcut finds 7000+ notes. It appears the "any: -tag:*" doesn't get interpreted and gets cut out of the filters. But the search results also contain other notebooks which makes no sense at all.



  2. This:

    notebook:"Action Pending"  any: tag:1-Now -tag:*

    It fails on the -tag:* when part of a shortcut

    This search is supposed to find all notes in the Action Pending notebook with either the "1-Now" tag or no tags at all. Instead it pulls in a random mess. The search in v8 finds the handful of notes it should, v10 finds thousands.

    I've had several rounds with tech support on this and they say they have no current plans to fix it.

  3. After some more interaction with support, it appears that saved searches are broken with this syntax. The syntax works if you type it in manually in the search bar. The saved search shortcut is still in the menu, and is broken, but now they consider this a "future feature" that I can advocate for in the feedback. What?! You broke basic functionality that I've used for years, and now it's a "future enhancement"?

    Anyone know how to revert back to the previous version?

  4. In Windows currently, and in Android versions prior to 10.5, the following saved search would find all notes in "My Notebook" that either had the tag "Now" or no tags at all. If a note had a tag "Later", for example, and no tag "Now", it wouldn't appear:

    notebook:"My Notebook" any: tag:Now -tag:*

    In Android 10.5, this no longer works. It is pulling in notes from other notebooks, different tags, etc. In Windows it finds the correct handful of notes. In Android it finds thousands.

    I've gone around and around with support on this, but they are not understanding the issue. Every interaction with them is like starting from scratch. Coming here to see if the good folks here can help. Thanks.

  5. Thanks @Shane D.. I want a new journal note created each morning with a template that I fill in to complete my daily journal. I can use IFTTT to create the note each day, or I can have IFTTT send an email to do the same thing. In either case I would like the note created with the correct template. I can put a pseudo template in the body of the email or the IFTTT app, but you need to use HTML to format it, which will run over the 4K byte limit. Using a template would be the better way to go. 

  6. Thanks, yes I just checked and yes there is a new version. I will install and try it out. I also have seen the problem where my shortcuts don't bring up any matches unless I try 5+ times. I think all these problems have a root cause around all the threading and subprocesses they are using. There are probably race conditions or other issues in the inter-process communication that is causing all this. I think they chose a much too complicated programming model for their Windows desktop version, unfortunately.
