search function doesn´t work

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, 

 

so i have the following problem: Evernote finds the note belonging to a keyword only if it is on the screen. 

Here comes the example.

If i search here, for example for "DRS" - then it works. As shown in this picture:

BUT, if i search for an older note, Evernote doesn´t find anything. 

For example the note "stadtbote". it definitely exists, but i can´t find it via evernote search:

I have this problem since may 1 - 2 months, appeared first after one of the last updates. 

Thank you very much in advance :)

Best regards, 

Torfin

I am so frustrated with search. I've never had much luck with it, but occasionally it worked, so I thought it was just me. Today, I've tried everything. It finds notes, but I cannot search within a note. I scan upwards of 50 pages in some notes--a client's payable receipts. When I need to find a specific receipt, I have to manually scroll through the pdf. I do not have the eye icon anymore that open the Evernote pdf reader. I can download the file (what a waste), or open it with Edge. No matter what I do, search (find) does not highlight matches. I've tried the Windows desktop app, Edge, Chrome, and Firefox.

Its possible you search index needs rebuilding.  I posted a solution in the note linked below

When I execute a search, I get the notes with the search term.1133523091_ScreenShot2018-05-14at13_19_47.thumb.png.1453342c5d85567c0dac4382114f2ddb.png

Within the individual note, I can scroll through the pdf
- the search term is highlighted

At any point, I can right-click the pdf to open the pdf in a dedicated pdf reader app (Acrobat).  This gives me more extensive search features.

Second suggestion is to rebuild your copy of the database.

Im a Premium user and just upgraded to 7.2.

I used to love love love Evernote, but now the search function doesnt work!!!! Grrrrrr

I do a search and barely anything appears in the search results.... when I know there are lots.

Im a power user and have recommended Evernote to loads of people. Now Im embarrassed.

Search is soooooo important to quickly find documents.

I want my money back. Or is there a way to get search running again. Evernote is now completely useless if I cant find documents quickly.

Thanks

Merv

Merv K - you have to reindex to get it to be fully functional again.  And I found it takes a several hours after starting the reindex for it to take effect.  Reindex today, and tomorrow it most likely will be fully functional for you again.
