Search Improvements

Idea

I have been using Evernote for some years now. I think one of the most important functions is Search. I keep using simple searches with some syntaxis but I would like to suggest a specific Menu be implemented, which would allow the selection/deselection of multiple notebooks and/or tags to facilitate the searching process. The use of syntaxis is cumbersome and prone to mistakes. Thank you,

If I understand you correctly, it sounds like saved searches would address your concerns for  selection/deselection of multiple notebooks and/or tags. 

Yes, syntax can be tricky, but once you get it right, you can save it for reuse.

A search builder feature like on Evernote/Mac

After completing the parameters, save the search, apply a shortcut

Thanks for the comments.

The use of syntaxis is not very friendly in my mind, particularly with the range and number of tags and notebooks I have created over time. The addition of a "multiple-tag/notebook-selection-menu" would tremendously help.

DTLow - I understand Evernote/Mac has more advanced search features, but I use Windows.  

Don Dz - I have saved searches that help but cannot replace the requested function primarily because of the dynamic nature of most searches. I might not be a skillful user, but I find it almost impossible and very time consuming trying to anticipate all the options in tags/notebooks. I have added special characters (+ & $ #), keywords and numbers to better organize my notes which makes syntaxis even more complex.

Evernote does not support multiple notebook searches, period, except in the case where you search a stack, which contains one or notebooks (and you can only search one stack at a time).. A query builder would be useful, but until such time as the underlying search syntax supports it, multiple notebook search won't work.
