Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
It's time now to explore the real power and beauty of Evernote. And that's its built in search functionality. Over time as you accumulate many, many notebooks with many, many notes inside them, finding the exact content you're looking for quickly and easily is important. And Evernote's up to the task. We're going to check it out now. You can begin by selecting a specific notebook. By doing so, you'll by default be able to search through that notebook, or you'll also be able to search through all notes no matter what notebook they're in. Let's choose User Conference 2013. Next, we'll go up to the Search Notes field and click there. One thing you're going to notice is Recent Searches.
You'll also see two options, the notebook you selected and Everything. So, you can be looking for contents in every single note in any notebook or the notebook you're looking at, in our case, User Conference 2013. So, we'll leave everything selected. And let's say we're looking for baggage information. We know we're on a trip and we want to find out about our baggage. We type that in, and you can see what's happening over here. Only one note found, there's the snippet. If I switch to User Conference 2013, same result.
It happens to be in that particular notebook. And then, down below you'll see the word baggage highlighted throughout this document. You'll also see suggestions. Well, this is what I was looking for, checked baggage, give that a click and that becomes my new search. And then, down below, you're going to see checked baggage is highlighted. That's exactly the information I was looking for. So we can clear this by clicking the x in the top right corner, next to what we're searching for. And then, just click down below in our document to get all the information we were looking for, quickly and easily.
And we can also search within a particular note. This allows us to search up here at the very top through all of our notes and various notebooks. But if we want to search for content in a single note, we use the old shortcut Cmd+F, if you wanted to. Or, you can go up to the Edit menu > Find > Find Within Note, Cmd+F. This opens up a new field at the top of the note now. So, if we're looking for information let's say on LAX. You could type in LAX you'll notice there's three matches.
The first one is visible, it's highlighted, but we can use these little arrows to move through the others, there's the next one. And there's the next one. And when we done, that's exactly what we click. The button labeled Done. Just like that. All right now, what if we're looking for content that's not actually text? It might be hidden inside an image. Let's go up here to the Search Notes field again. We're going to switch to everything now. And what we're going to look for is a person's name. We'll type in Karen with a capital K.
When we do that, look what's happening over here. There's only one note found and just below, you can see it highlighted inside a JPEG image. This is a snapshot of the business card. And the word Karen is really not text that we can edit, it's text that's kind of inside a snapshot. So, OCR, or Optical Character Recognition, kicks in, allowing us to find text inside images. All right, let's clear that by clicking the x.
And we'll go back to our User Conference 2013 notebook. So, as you can see, over time, as you begin to accumulate many, many notebooks with many, many notes, its going to be quick and easy for you to find what you're looking for thanks to this built in search functionality.
