  1. Issue: Evernote modifies what you type in the Search box to effectively add an asterisk, which changes the scope of the search from an "exact match" of your term to "starts with". The Evernote Search Grammar states that whatever string is provided to the Search engine requires an exact match. At some unknown, unannounced, time in the past, Evernote changed the behavior of how all EN Clients behave to make what you type to mean "starts with". I understand the benefit of this for some use cases. However, it has some unintended consequences. We are now unable to search for an exact match. The more Notes you have, the bigger the impact this will have on you. For example, I you want to find notes that contain a persons name, say, "Gene", then you would type into the Search Box: geneUnfortunately this finds notes with any word that begins with "gene": general generation generator genetics etc So, your search may return many more Notes than you expect, making it harder to find the one (or the few) you are looking for. This is greatly compounded by the presence of PDF attachments in your notes. PDF files can be hundreds of pages, with thousands, even tens of thousands of words. But, you can't easily see all of these PDF pages. So, you don't know if just "gene" was found somewhere, or if it is a false positive of words that start with "gene". Those of us that have been using computers for years have learned (been taught by experience) that when you are searching for a term, you need to ADD an "*" to the end of the term to match all terms that start with what you type. In my opinion it is easy enough to type one character * when you want to extend the scope from an exact match to starts with. The current behavior is confusing and inconsistent. When you enter an operator in the search box, then it looks ONLY for an exact match. For example, if I typed "tag:gene" then it would find ONLY those Notes with a tag of exactly "gene". It would be much simpler to remember one rule for all cases: exact match unless you add an * So, I would like to request that Evernote change the EN client behavior to be an "exact match" unless the user types an asterisk at the end of the term.
