When inputting a argument into the search field, search commences before complete argument is input. For notebooks that have many notes (in my notebook that number is over 1,800) this slows down entry to a crawl. My workaround is to create the entire search outside of Evernote and then "cut and paste" the entire search argument into the search field. What is needed is a setting that would hold back invoking the search until the entire argument is input and the user leaves the field or presses Enter.
On Evernote for Windows, when I type a string in the search box, only the first two characters appear as I continue to type ahead. Evernote seems to be thinking very hard about those first two characters, rather than waiting me to finish typing the full search string. I'm guessing that Evernote does this to get a jump on results, but it has exactly the opposite effect. It causes me wait while Evernote retrieves a bunch of irrelevant results. But why do I wait? I wait because I have a bad habit of making typos if I can't see what I'm typing. If I don't wait, then when Evernote finally displays the full string that I've typed (with typos), the results disappear! Unless the look-ahead can be done at lightening speed (i.e., faster than I can type), it should not be done at all. Is there a way to disable it?
