  1. I'm another premium user who is looking hard elsewhere. In my case, the deal-breaking issue is the lack of within-note Find on the Android platform. It's been requested by lots of users for years - and in one version of Android there was an OS-provided workaround, but that disappeared with Android 4.3. That, and the fact that EN themselves have done nothing about it themselves, has driven me away. So what I'm seeking is: * note encryption * within-note find * large notes * works (including search) with no internet connection * syncing to and from a Windows and/or browser equivalent It's rather dismaying to see EN scrëwing the pooch soooo badly with their recent builds and (lack of) support.
  2. Your point, however well taken, does not bear reposting more than once. I'll be marking the other repeats as spam. Do what you like, I'm done beating my head against a brick wall. Any software developer so blind to such an obvious and crucial failing - and to so many user requests about it - will not be getting my money or my attention again. Period.
  3. Just to give you a taste of how much has been ignored over the years: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/29094-request-search-within-note-android-app/ https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/47657-searching-within-a-document-on-android/ https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/43805-search-within-an-evernote-document/ https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/22114-please-improve-the-search-function/page-2
  4. Forget it guys, Evernote support have been ignoring this thread (and others on the same topic) for FOUR. YEARS. NOW. Even when you engage with them directly, as I did, they just say "oh, yeah, it needs that, it should happen". Then nothing. For years. After three years of using the product, including premium, I'm utterly gobsmacked that they still imagine it is a useful Android app without this feature. I kept expecting it to arrive in the next update to make things work properly, but no. Apparently, there aren't enough Android users out there for them to provide the same functionality which it has had on Windows and i* platforms since day one. Disappointed doesn't even come close to describing how I feel about this issue.
  5. I first started asking for this feature over two years ago. I was reasonably happy using a workaround which ANDROID was providing in that, if I selected a word, I could then use Android's edit menu to Find that word (which also had an edit box allowing me to change the find target. All good). However, that functionality disappeared when my phone upgraded its Android version last week. Evernote can no longer rely on Android to cover its deficiency. Without a within-note find, Evernote has now become utterly useless to me - I need to do the "Select all, copy, paste to a real product, Find" approach which others have mentioned. PLEASE ADD THIS LONG-REQUESTED AND ESSENTIAL FEATURE BEFORE YOU LOSE ANY USER WITH MORE THAN A FEW LINES IN THEIR NOTES!!
  6. Yes, I have the latest EN version, and running on ICS. DON'T go into edit mode first. Do your selection (via long press on a word) in ordinary view mode. Then the selection bar at the top appears -- use the down arrow, and you'll be fine.
  7. It turns out there IS a within-note find. It's just so cleverly concealed that almost impossible to find (npi) - and even harder to remember next time around. But it's there, it works, and it's good. Do this: 1. Open your note 2. Also unlock any encrypted bit(s) you need to find within 3. (the real obscure bit) Select some text, e.g. by touching a word until it is selected 4. An edit menu appears at the top of the screen 5. (the second obscure bit) Hit the down-arrow at the right - THERE's the magic Find function on the menu! 6. When you select Find from that menu, the word you had originally selected will be in the Find edit box 7. Just click in the edit box and replace it with your desired Find target - it will be found and highlighted as you type, just as bacizone asked in the first post 8. Up and down arrows to the right of the edit box find next/previous All I could ask really is to make it vastly easier to start a find - and possible to start without an unwanted word in the edit box! Oh, and someone from Evernote - or someone who at least knows something about the product - reading the posts here and responding, so we don't have to stumble on this stuff by chance. But thanks for implementing it, whenever that happened.
  8. I'd just like to strongly add my "search within note" request to the above. It is especially essential for encrypted notes, per I'mBob's comment. Evernote does everything I need except this - but without this, the rest might as well not be there. It won't even let me select and copy encrypted text (after entering the key of course) so that I can paste it into an external editor which can search it. So effectively, my long encrypted notes can only be accessed via a painstaking visual search.
