  1. This is not possible. You would either need to isolate searches to individual notebooks or stacks. Or tag the notes & exclude the notes from a search. The best way would be to put private notes into another account.
  2. Since the note does have at least one of those tags (it actually has three), it would NOT meet OP's criteria.
  3. Technically, there is not an AND search in Evernote. (Technically wrt the search grammar), It's ALL or ANY. You would want this to be an ALL search, which you can toggle from ANY. IOW, the note must meet ALL criteria. A note with only one tag of Q3 is not displayed in the results pane b/c it does not meet ALL criteria, since it does not meet the criteria of -tag:q3. It's very easy to test yourself. Start out with only -tag:q1. See what notes are displayed. Then add -tag:q2 & see what notes are removed from the results pane. Then add -tag:q3 to the search, etc, etc, etc. Wait, wh

  5. IME, you should be able to use the search grammar of: -tag:Q1 -tag:Q2 -tag:Q3 -tag:Q4 However, if your tag names have spaces, the tag names must be enclosed in quotes. IE: -tag:"Q 1" The above search finds all notes that are not tagged with any of the tags you mentioned. (Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4) Any note that has at least one of those tags will not show up in the results pane. The problem with using -tag:q* is that it will not include any notes that are tagged with any other tag beginning with Q. IOW, if a note has only one tag & that tag is "quarterly reports", it will not show up in the r
  6. Please note in your original post, you had: - tag:Q4 (space after hyphen) When it should have been -tag:Q4 (no space after hyphen) This may simply be a typo in your post. But if you copied/pasted from your search, that would be a problem.

  8. While the kind words are appreciated, again, please let's stay on topic. If this thread continues to be a gripefest about moderators, it WILL be locked. Please feel free to report any posts you think go against the forum code of conduct by using the report button that is on each post. Also keep in mind that just because you do not like a post does not mean it goes against the forum code of conduct. Thank you.
  9. As Jeff pointed out earlier, you can use the report button to report any post you feel violates forum code of conduct. (And your post is pretty close to that). All reports are read by EN employees and can be read by moderators. If EN staff feel the post violates code of conduct, action will be taken. However, this is a public forum and as a result, there very well may be posts you do not like, but that do not violate the forum code of conduct. That's life. Evangelists have been hand picked by EN staff. And as Jeff said, they have a bit of authority since they are also moderators. So EN
  10. Nice way to take things out of context. Please feel free to read the previous posts to that user. That reply was to someone who was griping about not getting support. And yet when asked several times to post his ticket number, so that someone from Evernote could follow up on it (notice, this is trying to a HELP this user), he refused. Evernote takes their customer support very seriously & they always want to investigate any situations that may fall through the cracks. So yeah, if someone is going to come to the board & gripe about lack of support, I expect the user to provide info
  11. Using tags, keywords & descriptive titles allows you to use the powerful EN search engine so you can easily & quickly find notes. I have over 63,000 notes and yet most of my searches are across all notebooks, not relegated to a single notebook. And yet I can easily find the note(s) I'm looking for.
  12. I see several people demonstrating to a user the various way he could get support. Not sure why you think that's "abuse" or not positive/professional.
  13. Are you trying to import notes by using drag n drop or an import folder? If so, then you will need to remove the invalid characters from the files.
  14. No one has ever suggested otherwise. However, if/when a user has a more direct need to feel their request is heard, then yes, submitting via a support ticket is the recommended alternative. You "support" the right for users to repeatedly request a feature (which no one has ever said they shouldn't) and yet you add a negative connatation to those who disagree? I don't understand the rationalization behind "supporting" replies only from those who agree with you. Absolutely!
  15. Yes, backspacking over the dots is erasing the protected text, just as if you were backspacing over text, an image or any other attachment. This should not be a surprise. As far as recovering your note, there is the note history. Or...if you have a backup of your database.
  16. Yes, you are right. This has been suggested before. Evernote staff read all posts on the board so please do not start new threads for the sake of starting a new thread. Unlike bed sheets, thread count does not matter here.
  17. Actually, the best option is to sync your computer/device before making any changes, then syncing the computer/device after making any changes thereby eliminating conflicting notes altogether.
  18. There are a few other (iOS) apps that also do this. I've used Fastever Snap for many years & love it. Other OSes probably have them as well. http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/38384-apps-opinion-fastever-versus-quickever/

  20. that is RIDICULOUS charge a one-time fee for the lifetime of the product.... VueScan scanner software, i paid a one time charge, i get updates for life... my life or the product's life, whichever ends first... lifetime NRA membership... $300 for me... $300 for my 10 month old (she gets a much better deal than i did...) or bump offline notebooks to the free side.... there's no reason a note made on my tablet shouldn't be available when i don't have a wifi signal.... As Scott said, there are very few SERVICES that offer a lifetime price. Well, there used to be those lifetime gym membe
  21. IME, it's very easy to retrieve notes if you utilize stacks, notebooks, tags, keywords & descriptive titles & I have over 62,000 notes in my main account. http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/48737-simple-powerful-obvious-and-missing-from-evernote/?p=246668
  22. Did you read my post #10? At least that way, you are able to idenify the notes beginning with David:
  23. IME, using quotes to search for special characters is iffy at best & certainly not reliable. I just tested this again. Intitle:"test:" (with the colon) does not exclude notes with test (not followed by a colon) in the title. I just tried this on both the web & Windows clients.
  24. I don't understand why this isn't working. If you type this (no quotation marks), what happens? intitle:David What happens if you use quotation marks? intitle:"David" Both of these should work fine if the name is at the beginning of a phrase in the title. She's trying to include the colon in order to refine the search results to exclude notes that have David elsewhere in the title. (I think.)
