windows (Archived) Evernote 5 Search Notes (F6) hangs ...

Recommended Posts

Using Evernote 4, this was my go to action (F6). It would clear all tags, and show all notes. I also email myself notes multiple times throughout the day, so F9-F6-Tab-Home would get me to my latest notes right away.


 


With Evernote 5, just hitting F6 makes Evernote unresponsive for a good few seconds sometimes. Anyone else having this issue?

Not seeing this; F6 puts you into the search bar, and drops down the recent/saved searches menu instantaneously. Latest build is 5.0.2.1261

Make sure that your Tools / Options / Update to pre-release if available checkbox is checked. 5.0.2.1261 is still marked as pre-release.

I have the same issue with 5.03.1614.

It isn't pressing F6, it is typing in the first 2 characters of the search. Everytime I do that Evernote hangs for a couple of seconds, probably to load suggestions and saved searches.

 

It's a real pain, of course, because Evernote is supposed to be known for quick searching. I mean there are blogs everywhere that tell you not to bother with too many tags or too many notebooks because the search function is quick and amazing.  I hope this can get fixed soon.

Seems that the default is now 150ms. Need to update my info on this. :P

 

 

Hmm. It was still set to 50 yesterday when I changed it to 0.

That would be because it was carried over from a previous version. I find the default by deleting the key. It isn't something I would necessarily recommend (Not something people are always comfortable with, regardless of what they are used for)

When Evernote is started again, it recreates the key to it's default value. This is how I got 150

So it will be 50 or 150 depending on when/how it was installed I believe.

I just rename it to something obviously related to the original name. :)
