Seaching within individual notes on iOS is becoming more and more important to myself as I put more and more text into Bear. Would love to see this implemented!
It would also be great if this was integrated with the global search so if I search for a string “XX” and then click on a note in the results of that search, it would immediatelly take me to the place of first ocurrence of “XX” within that note and would allow me to jump quickly between occurrences.
Bear has become an essential tool for my academic research. However, without the ability to search within individual notes on iOS, it is almost impossible to find a specific string of text in notes that are, quite literally, thousands of words long. Might any movement have been made on this feature request since Feb '17? I am sure that many in the academic community who must compose long notes would be ever grateful!
@steve Yes, I'm afraid this, and many other features, required way more time than I initially thought. In this specific case, we had a huge problem with app navigation bar which makes impossible the kind of customization we have in mind for in-note search.
The next major update will feature a change in navigation bars (almost invisible to users apart from 1 very cool thing) and will finally open the way for note search.
I really super impressed with the Bear notes app. It is so powerful and easy to use on OSX/iOS. The issue not be able to search in a document itself for iOS is really makes this product from a 10/10 to 5/10 score product.
But, but I found a workaround for the time been:
One of the key features of Bear (I find is for my purpose mind-blowing): is the ePUB export function (you only can do it in Bear for OSX). So you export you ePUB file.
-Send an email with the ePUB file attachment to yourself.
-you tab on the email attachment in your iOS device and then scroll to icon "Copy to iBooks"
- Now you open your Bear notes in the iBooks app;
Now you can use the iBook search function and much much of the great capabilities of the iBOOKs app.
- You can do the same for Android devices. Open the email ePUB file attachment with your Android device and open it with the app called "Lithium" from the play store (I tried lots of ePUB play store apps but they are mostly not good compared to iBooks for iOS).
