thank you jbenson2, but iwas not talking about using the search box, but rather the find within note function when you hit ctrl-f
how to "find within note" todo/checkbox? dont want to do anything special with checkboxes, just want to find them within a single note like you can for text within a single note. see image: notice how it counts how many instances of the found items? how can this be done/what is the syntax to find checkboxes/todo items?
