Please allow Bear notes to be searched through macOS Spotlight. This feature is already available on Bear for iOS.

    Any news on macOS spotlight search yet? It is really holding back on my ability to migrate from Evernote.

    A road map would help, current macOS version is 1.4 but I have seen references to 1.5 and 1.6..

    Many thanks, Jonathan

    Hi Jonathan,

    spotlight and other search-related features are scheduled for 1.6, I'm sorry macOS spotlight took soo long but we encountered some API problem during the implementation.

    I recently came over to Bear from Evernote and may have to go back as as lack of Spotlight search integration on Mac is tough on my Workflow during work.
