(Archived) Featture request : Better search: wildcards, no fuzzy search, sourceurl

Recommended Posts

Hi. I find search functionality a bit clunky, and in some cases unusable. Apologies if this has been discussed before.

 

 

  1. Please add sourceurl to the search options. It's tedious having to type "sourceUrl:" before every url term.
  2. Please allow wildcards everywhere in the search term, not just the end. Particularly annoying in URL, so that I have to type, say, sourceUrl:http://discussion.evernote.com* sourceUrl:http://www.evernote.com* etc instead of just sourceUrl:*evernote*
  3. Please add http:// by default to all sourceurl: terms that have no protocol. The vast majority of sourceUrls are going to be http:// links, please don't make us type it out every time.

Thanks in advance

Another one: 

 

4. Please do not ignore punctuation if enclosed in double quotation strings. currently there is no way to find, for example howler.js in notes. The dot will be replaced by a space, and the search will look for two separate words, "howler" and "js". Wrapping it in double quotation marks doesn't help, "howler.js" still treats it like  two separate words.

Doubtful this will be coming to Evernote anytime soon...

The thing I really need is to be able to search with wildcards in the middle of tags.

I posted links from the CTO of Evernote to your initial reply. AFAIK, nothing has changed in the one minute since my initial reply.

No need for sarcasm. I was just being more specific - I don't need to search for wildcards in the middle of all search terms, only tags.

The answers were pretty clear.
