  1. How do I search only text I've typed in the note, ignoring attachments? I love attachment searching, but sometimes I want to ignore those in a search. I want to search for lets say a country name I typed in, but I have a project docket file attached to many notes (weekly meeting) that has the same country name in it each week. I want to ignore those attachment references to the country name, and only return notes where I typed the country name into the note. Ideas? Almost like a "-attachments" to ignore attachments. Thanks!
  2. Since a couple weeks, I've experienced getting a blank Notes list, but if you click in the white space, Notes appear, so they are definitely there - just not showing. I've encountered it mainly in lists of Notes that are a result of a search. Anyone else having this issue? I got Version 7.0.3. I'll post a screenshot the next time it happens again.
  3. One of my two biggest issues with Evernote is finding things. It's kinda like using one of the older search engines before Google came out. I often spend an undue amount of time searching, and then failing reforming my words, phrases, listing orders and often giving up and drilling down through various notebook stacks to find a note. I know that many experienced users here are able to use EN search reliably but I have had very poor experience over the years. I really depend on EN and wish it's search would work like Google and not be too literal, give me useful sort orders etc. More intelligent for average users versus programmers power users. So, given that it's a quite mature product and there seems to be little interest in overhauling the search, I wonder if there would be a way to use Google to search my EN database and as can be done with many websites and forums that also have (to me) inadequate or difficult to utilize search engines. I know that EN is not a webpage, so perhaps it's not possible to apply it's outside search to my personal database, but if it were, I would love the option to use a different search engine. Even if it's something else, just something designed differently than EN. EN just does not yield the results much of the time.
  4. Just a semi-quick question. When I attach scanned documents as pdf's (and I am a premium subscriber) how long does it take for Evernote to index it? Today was the first time that I used this feature and it seems to be taking some time, which is why I ask. I have no problem waiting, I just want to know the limit so I know when it's a problem. Many thanks!
  5. Dear All, I really would love to see a solution for archiving notes. I've been using for 4 years and now I have some notes that I want to keep in the system, but want to remove from my search. As time goes, my search are getting more difficult to separate valid information and archived information. Like we have Notes, Notebook, Tags, Atlas, Market and Premium button on the Mac version, I dream with an Archive button. Every note I move to this icon will make it not searchable, unless I'm searching inside the Archive View. You could even move a completely Notebook. I have many scenarios where this is valid, some of them here: You finished a graduation course full of notes and you want these notes in a place that you may need but normally it will not be part of your search or have a distract visual in All Notes ViewYou closed a company and want all the notes in a special placeYou may not want to have this Archive notes in your local hard disk, unless you click "Download"You prepare for a vacation and suddenly canceled. You want to have this hide in some place but not displaying all the time. I think it would be a great feature. Thank you, Patrick Santana

    Search Not Finding Notes

    Evernote 7.4 on macOS 10.13.6 ... I've been using Evernote for over 10 years. Something broke with Search in the latest upgrade. I type in a keyword, and Search says "No notes found." But I know there ARE notes with that keyword. I'm attaching a screenshot with an example. I typed "tahini dressing," and at the top it says: Found notes with rosemary tahini dressing, white bean kale salad with tahini dressing, roasted carrot lentil salad with tahini dressing and curry-roasted fennel salad with rosemary tahini dressing but in the note list area, it says "No notes found." Even when I click on one of the "found notes" result, I still get "No notes found."
  7. Please increase tags functionality for iOS devices: 1) We need *simple* multi-tag search. 2) We need auto-populate of tag names. 3) We need the tag library to reflect our desktop organization (e.g. order, nesting, etc), just as with Notebooks. The iOS apps are horridly crippled without these functions in place. Without them, you have only a few options: 1) Do without multi-tag filtering... Do you have something tagged for a person AND as an agenda item (something to talk about next time you see that person)? Too bad, you can only pull up EVERYTHING for that person, which may include years of emails, mtg notes, etc. OR you can pull up EVERYTHING tagged as "agenda", thus including large numbers of items irrelevant to who you are actually standing with. Insert your own example of useful multi-characteristic filtering, then accept that you can't accomplish them. 2) Utilize saved searches... This works perfectly, but causes, as it has caused with my Evernote, your Shortcut list to become monstrously long defeating to some degree the idea of a "shortcut list". In the end, you choose a few definitely needed multi-tag searches and resign yourself to option #1 above for most things. 3) Attempt to use complicated boolean search strings... This works in a highly non-intuitive way AND requires you to remember the exact wording of your desired tags, often difficult in situations where you are looking for a person for instance and don't remember if you listed them as Dan or Daniel. If you utilize an extensive tag list (a strength of the desktop Evernote applications) this works almost never, thus you resort to a few items under option #2, and mostly surrender to option #1. It seems quite strange that this is an unavailable functionality, especially because of how many people tell me it WAS available prior to 2011/2012. It's a very frustrating situation which is crippling the usability of the iOS apps for easy daily use. Please fix, or at least give us some idea of why this oft asked for functionality is still unavailable. Thank you!

    no search box when moving notes!

    Hi guys, great web interface update! however when moving notes there's suddenly no way of searching for notebooks, but instead i have to scroll through hundreds of notebooks to find the right one for ever note. (if im not missing something obvious) Please add the search box back in, in the move dialogue. Also if there is a way to be able to select and move multiple notes in one go that would be something long awaited. i was hoping that would be implemented by now but it doesn't seem to be. thanks David
  9. I have some notes on M Language, and there are some functions like #date() and #duration() that I am having trouble searching for. Searching #date returns everything with "date" in it, and searching for "#date" still returns everything with "date" in it, with or without the # symbol.
  10. Am I the only only that thinks the EN search function needs considerable work? I think this new collaboration with Google should also involve similar search techniques. I was extremely frustrated when trying to search for anything more than one word in multiple PDF attachments in one note. I really want to see features that allow me to search for phrases and modify my search criteria — just like Google! http://www.lifehack.org/articles/technology/20-tips-use-google-search-efficiently.html if there are better was to search for phrases or sentences within Evernote, I haven't come across it and it's not readily apparent to everyone.
  11. Most of my searches are for exact phrases. Evernote seems to assume that most of my searches are for "Any" word or "All" words, since those are the only options in the drop down list. Let's say I want the phone number of American Express, so I type this in the search box: american express. Obviously, I get many other notes, all of which have both words in them, but only one of which I need, and the actual entry for American Express is way down the list. I am aware that I can search for the exact phrase by using quotes: "american express" That's well and good, but I find it annoying to have to fiddle with quotes for almost every search. (Perhaps this is because I'm an old Info Select user, which allowed exact phrase searching as a optional default.) Any chance of having "Exact Phrase" in addition to "Any" and "All" in the drop down menu under the search box? Or am I missing something?
  12. It isn't a new idea, but it is a wishlist item. Please allow us to exclude a notebook from our search with a -notebook type search term. And if that is impossible, then provide a way to tag notes automatically with the notebook name. I need to exclude a notebook from a search. I most always do, multiple times/day. Since I can't do that, all the notes within those notebooks have a tag with the notebook name. I can't type -notebook recipes when searching for an article that appeared in The Onion, but I can sure type -tag:recipes to filter out 2,000 notes. It takes some housekeeping to ensure that all notes within a notebook also includes the notebook tag. Not all notebooks require it, but I have at least 4 that do; that is 4 notebooks that interfere too much with most searches such that I have to tag all the notes within them: recipes, woodworking, work and film. And yes, I need these notebooks because they are shared. I got rid of all my notebooks except for 4 shared ones and 2 that I use daily. I prefer to use tags. But I don't like having to do two things to so many notes (move them to the notebook and tag them with the notebook name).
  13. When adding tags to a note on Evernote for Mac, a list of matching tags populate a dropdown that narrow as you type. On the iOS app, all partial matches are shown, whereas on Mac and Web clients, the matching tags are only by start of text match. I would prefer partial match across all clients for consistency and easier tag adding.

    Search in IOS does not work

    iPhone 8 iOS 11.31 / EN 8.12 Searching in ALL NOTES returns zero results. If i go back to the actual Notebook where the note is stored, a SEARCH IN "NOTEBOOK", it will return the correct result(s). it works fine on my iPad 11.3.1 / 8.12 it works fine on my Mac. 10.13.4 / 7.1.1 (Yes I did see there was an iOS update)

    Search in IOS does not work

    Hello, the search function on my IOS devices does not work at all. Have Evernote professional. It works perfectly on Mac. Thanks a lot for help. BR Kaufi
  16. I know that Web clipper supports Google for suggestions from Evernote when searching the web, but I was wondering if it supports other search engines as DuckDuckGo. I recently switched to it due to privacy concerns, and I wish I could have that convenience of searching evernote too while doing web searches from DuckDuckGo

    Maps Return

    Please return the "Atlas" functionality back to Evernote. And please add the ability to filter on the built-in search functionality. One of my primary uses of Evernote was to save location-based notes so that it was easy for me to map my travels and be reminded of where I went and what I did when I returned to a city.

    Improved Search

    Hey team Evernote, As a sidetone it might be useful to include a way to send feedback from the app directly? It was not straightforward to find this channel. Anyhow I have always valued the way that your product handles search. Being able to search through images and old content especially since I've been accumulating a lot of content for the last 6-7 years using the service. But came across an annoying glitch, when doing a search which includes the title of a Notebook those results are not included. So for instance if I had a workbook that I called Renovation when doing a search for Renovation I would assume that the results would include all the notes that belong to that workbook. This seems to me like basic way search should work...probably missed a lot of other use cases. But for this specific example I find it quicker to search than go into a specific notebook. This is true for the desktop client and even more so for the app where a search that includes the workbook name doesn't even show up. A pretty common at least for me use case is wanting to find content related to for example renovation but not all my notes are included under the workbook renovation. Think that this would be a great improvement :)
  19. I have a notebook with 1850 relatively large notes. Entering search argument in search field bogs down to a crawl after three characters are entered
  20. I seriously need help with my search. I cannot search my old notes. (I tried to use note's title / tag / note text as a keyword but nothing worked). I never had this problem before. Although I'm not exactly sure what caused the problem, this problem occurred around the time I update Evernote to my latest version - Version 6.13 (455673 Direct). FYI, I use OS X 10.11.6. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the app but no luck. Does anyone have to same issue? I guess it might due to an error in indexing of old notes. I'd really appreciate if anyone could guide me on how to solve the problem. I have a few thousands of notes in my Evernote and inability to search them is a real pain in the neck. Thank you very much. I just found another post about the search issue. It suggests that I troubleshooting with "Recreate Full Text Search Index". However, I couldn't find the troubleshooting on my menu. Weird! See the attached photo for details. Does anyone know where to find it?
  21. 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.
  22. I greatly appreciate the expanded suggested search terms displayed in the search info dialog box. In the Windows client, the text in the Search Info isn't selectable. I've been screen-clipping them. Consider the option to select <Search Info Note> from within the Search Info box and have a new note generated detailing the valuable information returned during these searches that helps document the thought process as well as Evernote's contributions to that process.... Best regards,

    tags tags are missing

    Oh my search tags are missing. My Internet has been out so I spent some time off-line setting up tags in Evernote and then tagging all my notes. I went out today and connected to Wi-Fi in my car and didn’t think about it if yours later I tried to make a note and add some tags and all the tags are missing. Not only that, some of the notes I tagged we’re missing also. Oh my search tags are missing.

Not only that, some of the notes I tagged we’re missing also. I’ve never really worked off-line before did something happen in terms of syncing?
  24. I know this has been mentioned before, but I think it's worth posting again. It would be really useful and a better UX if searches included tag hierarchy. Or at the very least gave users an option to enable a hierarchical search of tags. For example given three tags where apple and banana are children of fruit: > fruit > apple > banana I add two notes, and tag one apple and the other one banana. Currently if I search 'tag:fruit' nothing is returned, but that is not intuitive given that I've organised my tags hierarchically. What I believe is more natural, is if I search 'tag:fruit' thej it should return anything tagged fruit, apple, or banana. Thanks!

    Multi-Tag Search

    Can Evernote (Web) improve the tag search function, such as multi tag search allowed? Because it does not allow to create multi branch under an notebook, it just allow to make multi tag of the note for categorization! How can find if there are thousands of notes under an notebook. Raindrop.io, DIIGO also has such function. So, please kindly consider that.
