Search for exact phrase in Samsung Notes

When searching multiple words in samsung notes, it shows every instance of each word seperately, for instance, searching "5 weeks" shows every case of the number 5 which is obviously not very useful. How can I search for an exact phrase? Quotation marks don't work.

@PointlessSignin: I've had a look into this for you, and if you're using search function in Samsung Notes (magnifying glass in the top right of an open note) and you want to search for a phrase, don't put a space between the words. So, using your example, search for '5weeks' as opposed to '5 weeks' and this will only show instances of the 2 words/numbers together, rather than each time they occur separately. I hope this helps.
