searching across notebooks

Alex, in the next version will it be possible to search across notebooks? I'm under the impression that one can't do that now.

Hello Bill,

unfortunately not since notebooks are different databases.

If you really, really need to do it, there's a way (although a bit tedious): create a new notebook and import all notebooks into it (use "Add tags" field to differentiate them). After that select all sections and search. The tag you added will tell you from which notebook notes come from, also you can export the findings (or even simple copy-paste them).

Thanks. It's not an urgent issue; I was just curious whether there was a capability that I was not aware of.

The only really serious deficiency in CN for me is the awkward treatment of images, and I know that you'll be addressing this problem in the next version.
