Searching on Notebooks

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to search across all notebooks but exclude one of them? I can't seem to figure out the syntax for such a search.

Thanks!

No, notebooks can not be negated in a search.

ahh, that's a shame. Thanks for the feedback. I suppose the only work around is to search across multiple notebooks - is that possible and/or do you have any other workaround suggestions?

No, notebooks are are also excluded from multiple entries.   

Note, tags can be multiple/negated, which could be useful by assigning a temporary tag to the notes

If the notebooks were in a stack, the stack could be searched.

- Or,  oddly,  go to the notebook to be excluded and select all notes.  Assign a temporary tag.  Go back to All Notes & set up your search "... -tag:<temporary>"...

Thanks. I find it really odd that such basic search features are not available. They used to brag about how practically anything is searchable. it's a shame.
