I'm hindered by so many shortcomings of Evernote nowadays and despite voting and tweeting about them, very little has happened in the way of evolution. I recall Evernote being absolutely outstanding WAY back in 2008 when they begun. Searching a trash folder should at the very least be a web function. For fun I just searched for all emails from the domain evernote.com and I found my very first invite mail in 2008 for my first account blazing about search features and prioritized OCR document recognition etc, the ability to search contents of files and "even words in images" they bragged. It's saddening to see a thread like this, completely stagnent. I'm sorely tempted to start working on a campaign to stir up Evernote's attention as truly, they raved about the features available in the product, one of which was searching all folders including trash. One dated 2012-12-25 ranted about how they won an award for being so innovative and ever since; the product feels stagnated by any of todays 'search' standards. A very frustrated Evernote long timer here wondering where all the pro subscription money is going.
Could not agree more. This is especially important for when you are looking in context. A note for example that you knew you captured on a similar date as another note that you revealed through search. Evernote search behaviour used to be like this in fact. Unless some massive architectural change made this now a more difficult feature; I don't know. I do know though that this is probably one of the most sane features an app like evernote should be the leader in. Evernote originally had such great search features; as a premium user I honestly am starting to question Evernote's direction of late. Finding things seems to be less effective than in earlier releases. I'm certain if they care to look at metrics, search is probably the feature that needs the most work today. I left before and I'm in that place again I'm afraid; struggling to see the value when Evernote should be the boss at search, it's the whole point is it not? +1 from me anyway, the 'keep last selected note selected' is an absolute no brainer and would be of incredible help when searching in context of time and date. SO much easier than actually entering in a specific date etc. Come on Evernote, search was your thing!!
