Hello,

When I search a specific word in Samsung Notes, the app only shows me the documents with the specific word in the TITLE. This is very annoying! Normally the app showed me all the documents with that specific word in the content of the document and not only the title!

Since the last update (I updated on 4 november) the problem started!

What can I do now? Thanks in advance.

Same issue! 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.

 

I am using the Tab S7 and the latest update installed on my tablet was on the 31st of Oct 2022

the version is 4.4.00.64

 

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.

 

 

This is a big issue for me as the recognition of whats already typed in a document is much more important to me personally than the recognition of my own handwriting. This feature had made referencing so easy for me as a college student. Please fix is ASAP 😭

THIS IS SO ANNOYING.. I am a student and have tons of notes from different lectures.

I can not wrap my head around the issue hasn't been solved for so long since the last update.

Without a search feature, using this app is not different from working with a pile of hard copies.. -SIGH-

Same problem here can't search handwritten notes anymore after latest update, I contacted Samsung because this must be a bug, I suggest you do the same.
