I have a hefty Notebook - must about 3,000 items. Because SEARCH is invoked after 4 or so characters are entered in the search field.... the system chokes with repeated searches with each subsequent key stroke as I'm entering the search argument. In short, for any search I''m forced to enter the search argument outside of Evernote and then "cut and paste it" into the search field as a "workaround." How difficult would it be to have a set-able option that would hold the invocation of search until the <ENTER> key is pressed. Seems easy to do and it would significantly help using search for people who have larger notebooks to search.
