  1. Hi all! Afaik, Evernote search supports either boolean AND (just concatenate search terms) or boolean OR (use "any: ..."). Is there any way available now or planned for future releases to support full boolean search, that is: combine both methods. Real life example: I use Evernote to keep track of my tax records and for my yearly tax declaration. For this I have tagged all relevant notes with tags "tax", "<year>" (e.g. "2013") and "tax-longterm". Tag combinations like "tax 2013" mean "this is a document relevant for 2013 tax declaration". But there are also older documents I need each year, like rental agreement contract from 2005. For this I use the additional tag "tax-longterm". Any document tagged with "tax-longterm" means: "this is relevant for this year's tax declaration, regardless of the year with which it is tagged". So my rental agreement is tagged with "2005 tax tax-longterm". When I want to create ONE Evernote search that gives me all relevant documents for 2013 tax declaration, I'd like to search for something like "any: (tag:tax tag:2013) tag:tax-longterm" meaning: "give me all documents that are tagged with 'tax 2013' OR 'tax-longterm'". But unfortunately, Evernote search doesn't support bracketed searches or any other kind of combining search terms with AND or OR as of now. Does anybody know a trick, hack to make this work? Hacks like combining tags "tax" and "2013" into one tag "tax2013" are no good since I use the year tag for lots of other purposes and don't want to end up with a gazillion combined tags like "house2013" and "income2013". The way I do it now is to use two separate searches "tax 2013" and "tax-longterm", but this becomes tiresome when you have to switch back and forth between both. Thanks for your help! Ax
  2. Currently it is not possible to search for special characters like (pretty much any symbol other than the underscore) I have used special characters like $, %, ^, &, *, @, and # as part of my tag system and would like to be able to search for them. This came to my attention when I found that I can not search for all of my notes dealing with the programming language C# (I got back every file that had the letter "C" in it)
  3. Hey guys, I would like to use saved searches as a link in a note. So I can click on the search-link in that note and get the results. Because I want to share this note and also these searches with another person, the quick access (favorites) and the saved searches in my own search field are not helpful. Example: I create a note "OVERVIEW". In that note I want to show a clickable saved seach (notebook:"home" tag:"invoice" tag:"paid"). With another person I'm sharing the notebook:"home". This person now should see the also shared note "OVERVIEW" and can click at the saved search "Paid Invoices Home" (notebook:"home" tag:"invoice" tag:"paid") and get all the paid invoices from notebook home. How is that possible? Or how can I solve this problem instead? Hope you understand my question... looking forward to your ideas.
  4. 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
  5. I can find notes which contain text inside pictures using Shift + Windows + f. When I open a note with picture-text matching my search string, the search string is highlighted where it appears in the pitures (and text). But I would like to be able to jump (aka. browse) through the matching strings within a note, just like pressing enter jumps to the next match inside a note after a search using ctrl + f. Is this possible? This would be beneficial when searching for strings in pictures in notes with many pictures, because it takes a long time to look through note (with your eyes) to find match inside a long note, even if the match is highlighted. I would think there is a way for evernote to do this, because it has already found all the matches, I just can't seem to find a way to automatically browse through them.
  6. 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).
  7. This is my experience with Evernote‘s search funtion on the iPad: I pick the search icon on the left, below the „all notes“ icon. I enter a search term on the search screen that is shown. I press Enter. Now I see a list of notes that contain the search expression. So far, it is ok. What I see as a problem: This listing does not show where in the note the search hits are located. So, I have to enter the same search expression in the „Search in note“ function for each note, via the top right menu that opens when I pick the „...“ icon. In contrast, if I do a search on the desktop Evernote, each note in the list scrolls down to the first occurrence of the search result, and all search results in each note are highlighted. So, it is easy to see the search results at their place in all notes on the desktop Evernotes, but impossible in the iPad Evernote. Unless I type in the same search expression in each and every note in the results list. Do I miss something? Or is this a function that is just not supported in Evernote‘s iPad version? Thanks much!
  8. See the discussion here. There should be a syntax to search for words that contain the hash symbol. Preferably "#example" would find all instances of #example and not just example. For example, I use notes for Microsoft's M Language, which has several functions like #date(), #datetime(), #infinity, etc. I cannot search for those it seems. No matter what I do, I get date, datetime, infinity with or without the # symbol.
  9. 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!
  10. When I search my notes on my desktop Evernote, it finds what I am looking for fine, but it does not seem to be highlighting the answers. Is there a way to check / change the highlighting color to make it more visible? Regards, Chuck Billow
  11. I tried a couple of searches this morning in different forums - the result is always Windows 10 64bit and Chrome - haven't tried another browser or reloading / restarting anything yet.
  12. Quite often when i search for a word in notes, i will get "no results" or a few notes, but not all the notes with that word in it. The note i am looking for will _absolutely_ have the word in the note. LIke, i will have a note called "bacon recipes" and the text of the note will say "something something bacon", but if i search for "bacon" i get "no results". I can try searching the particular folder or "all notes" with the same results. Putting the word in quotes doesnt help. I have to manually scroll through the folder(s) looking for the note i want (which will be there). It is obviously very obnoxious that one of the whole reasons to use evernote is broken. I am also having another problem searching that i might post separately. A while ago my evernote stopped searching through text in images. It doesnt do it at all anymore. Most of my images with text are clearly pictured documents with printed text, so there is no excuse of bad handwriting or bad lighting making them illegible. How do i get it to search images again? Also, Evernote doesnt seem to want to search through titles anymore. Or sometimes it does, sometimes it doesnt. Does anyone have any ideas of what to do? This is really unacceptable. ------------------------------- Edit: Working with windows desktop version. Did update, did delete and reinstall more than once. Was using Windows 8 at the time, now using Windows 10. Was and am a premium subscriber. ------------------------------- Edit: I think i replied to myself somewhere in this thread to tell people the problem was solved, but wanted to add that here too. I ended up having to spend a lot of hours working with Evernote support (thanks guys!) and they had to reindex all my notes on their end. That worked out super well for like 8 months, although now i am encountering the same problems again :(.
  13. Hello, After installing ver 6.0.6.1769 (301769) Public, I was dismayed to find there is apparently no way to search the contents of just my notebooks vs all my notebooks and all notebooks that are shared with me. In earlier versions it was possible to select All Notebooks or My Notebooks when searching - while there may be a way of searching just my notes, I have yet to find it. Can anyone shed light on this? I have searched the forum for posts on this - but perhaps am doing something wrong? Thanks for any help...
  14. Evernote urgently needs a way to clear recent search history. I see that people have been asking for this for years, and yet it's still not an option. Where is it even stored? I can't find it in any file, or in the registry. I tried uninstalling Evernote to clear it, and my recent searches came right back after I reinstalled. While trying to find out if this is currently possible, I came across one person who accidentally entered a password in his search history, and another who entered her SSN in the search box to find a PDF, where it is now stuck for anyone to find. Evernote has a serious security problem if its users can't control their own sensitive data.
  15. 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.
  16. Hi everyone, Lately i'm having issues with the evernote search on my mac. If I type something in the searchbar to search across all notebooks, no results are displyed or a small fraction of what should appear. Example: Searching for "Prag" returns 1 results on the mac, but 46 results on iPhone and iPad. This is just one of many examples, e.g. "recipe" returns 3 results on mac and 57 on iPhone and iPad I first started noticing while running Evernote 6.8 so i updated to 6.9 Beta 2 to see if it would be solved but it's still broken. Any ideas? Thanks
  17. Hi All, In the past, we’ve seen reports from users that they are unable to search for PDF’s via Evernote for Mac. If you are encountering issues with searching notes/content from within Evernote, or with search via Spotlight, please see the following article: If you are encountering issues with searching PDF’s for Mac, please try the following to troubleshoot the issue: Should the PDF files be searchable? Remember, with Evernote, you can search PDFs created from: Scanned documents Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat, or other office and word processing applications (Evernote Premium and Business only) Also, in order for the search function to work properly, make sure that your PDF file meets the following requirements: Scanned PDFs with clear, typed text (handwriting is not searchable inside PDFs) PDFs that do not already contain text that you can select or copy PDFs with at least one page with a small image (1025 pixels of image data) PDFs less than 100 pages long PDFs less than 25 MB in size PDFs that are not password-protected PDFs that are not corrupted or unreadable Troubleshooting: If scanned PDFs are not appearing in your search results Sync Evernote. It can take up to 4 hours for Evernote to recognize text in newly attached PDFs. If you're encountering sync errors, check here for troubleshooting suggestions. Note: If you are working with a local notebook, PDFs inside that notebook are not synced and will not be searchable. Move the note into a synced notebook. Search Evernote for a specific word you know is inside the scanned PDF. If the word isn't found, the file is not indexed for search. Open the PDF in Adobe Reader or your PDF viewer and try selecting text in the file. If the text is selectable, it should show up in Evernote search. If text is not selectable, your PDF is probably scanned images and you need Evernote Premium for the text to be recognized. If the PDF file meets the file requirements, and the troubleshooting steps listed above did help to resolve the issue, please do the following in order to force the PDF to be re-OCRed by our system, and hopefully fix the problem: Right click (Control + Mouse click) on the PDF inside the note Open with... > Text Edit Add a new blank line to the bottom of the PDF Save and close Sync Evernote and try searching again Following the steps above will trigger the OCR engine to rescan the document for OCRing. However, If none of these suggestions help, please contact us. It's helpful to include the following in your ticket submission: A copy of your activity log A copy of the PDF file A description of what is happening A list of all the steps you took before you contacted Evernote Support
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. 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."
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
