Hi

I use Samsung Notes for studying,  and I use the search option quite a lot to find topics, but since the last 3 days, the search function can't find anything anymore.  Any help please

The "search" feature in Samsung Notes has gotten really bad after the latest update. When I search used to searched a word, it would show me all the documents in which that word was present. After the update, it shows less than half of the documents with that same word. It's not even handwritten, it's typed words in textbooks and it's still not working. I've tried cleaning cache, restarting the tablet as well as clearing the data. Nothing seems to be working.

 

 

To clarify the issue I'm having,I'll give an example here.

 

After the recent update,whenever I search up a word in Samsung notes,it brings up  the document in which I've *hand written*  the specific word BUT NOT the word that is already typed in the pdf itself. So its detecting most handwriting but not what came in the document itself.

I  am having this exact problem. This search function worked before, so I assume they should know how to fix it soon. How do we get Samsung support to notice this problem? I have no problem searching for a term when I am on the document but when I need to find a term from a handful of pdfs I am not gonna remember which one has it.

I completely understand where you're coming from as I have the exact same concerns, our best bet is them seeing these on these reports on this platform and fixing the in the upcoming update
