[Search] Highlighting of searched word within an opened note

Postby Brett » Wed Sep 09, 2009 1:52 pm

Searching for a word is fast and easy and it does highlight the found word if it appears in the list display. However when I open a note to find more occurrences there is no highlighting and I have to hunt around for each occurrence.

What about adding a search option in an opened note that has kept my search word ready for a search? Perhaps a small search bar next to tags & links

I use CintaNotes to take meeting or phone notes and I use a key word such as @action next to any actions. I then search for @action to get a list of notes and I then search within each note to see what the promised actions are.

Many thanks, Brett

Hello Brett,

sorry for the delay. The feature to search in the notes list has already been requested: it is #108 on the roadmap.
Thanks anyway!

I find the @action trick (coupled with that upcoming highlight in note body feature) a good candidate for another user tip. Waddaya think?

Yup I Agree!! I've used the @Action trick in a few places now. I t seems to fit the bill.
