search function made easy

Idea

if i have a long long list of email addresses and phone numbers in 1 single note

 

i can search it

 

but the search only shows which note has the word im searching

 

i have to scroll down very slowly to find the searched words in a yellow box

 

why cant evernote made it simple so that the cursor goes straight to the line of the searched words and if there are more than just 1 findings we can just hit next or previous

 

this is simple microsoft excell find function

Hi.  If you can split your big note into sections at least (I'm thinking on a desktop for ease of access) you should find it simpler to locate the record you need.  Ideally,  you need one record per note.  Searching within notes is also easy - put your search text in the clipboard to jump to the correct note,  then check the three dots menu for search within note and search that text again.

Sorry - I misled you;  I'm working on the Android beta app,  and that has several new features - one of which is search within note.  See below.  It should be coming to public release shortly...
