Search Within a Note
Sometimes, you have a lot of text in your notes, making it harder to find certain words you are looking for. You can navigate through specific word(s) and you will be in the exact place in your note where you want to be.
How to search for specific word(s):
In notes view, tap 🔍 search icon at the bottom of the screen and type in the word(s) you are looking for. For example, the word searched is ‘surface’.
You can use the arrows (∨, ∧) to jump to the next or previous search results.
In notes view, use keyboard shortcut ⌘F (Command + F) and type in the word(s) you are looking for. For example, the word searched is ‘surface’.
You can use the arrows (>, <) to jump to the next or previous search results. You can also use keyboard shortcuts: ⌘G (Command + G) to find next result and ⇧⌘G (Shift + Command + G) to find previous result to achieve the same result.
How to replace searched word(s):
On your macOS, you can also replace the searched word(s) with desired word(s).
If you have already searched the word(s), you can click on the box “Replace”. You can also use keyboard shortcut ⌥⌘F (Option + Command + F). Once you see the additional field below the search field, you can type in the replacement word(s).
For example, the searched word is ‘surface’ and the replacement word is ‘soil’ in the screenshot.
You can click “Replace” one by one as you move and replace from one result to the next, or you can click “All” to replace all the results with the replacement word(s).
