Searching by tags not working on Android

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

The exact same search yields different results in the Evernote Desktop Windows version 6.6.4.5512 and the Evernote App on Android version 7.12.

Specifically I am using tags to filter my search, using the following search string:

tag:\Home tag:!NextAction

In windows, it works well. On Android, it returns "No notes were found that match your search". Note I'm using the exact same search string as this is a saved search I keep as shortcut so is accessible from both evernote on desktop and android.

Any idea why this isn't working?

Many thanks.

At a guess, I'd be suspicious of the '\' character in the tag "\Home".. Try renaming that to something that doesn't have a '\' in it, and see if that works the same in both places.

Yep, that was the reason.

For all it is worth, I have used special characters in the past to give context to tags (e.g. context of "where" tags get a "\"), which for me simplifies tag attribution to notes. It would be nice if this worked on android.

Backslash is something I watch out for, as it's often used as an escape character. In any case, the searches should be treated the same -- this appears to be one of those annoying little discrepancies between different Evernote clients.
