Here’s something that’s bugged me for years, and I don’t know if maybe I’m just missing something…
I don’t really know how to do a simple search in Tinderbox. Here’s an example:
I have a note in my file called “Vancouver eye doctors” (or maybe “eye doctors in vancouver”, I don’t know – which is the point). So I hit cmd-f to search for “vancouver doctors” and get… nothing.
Pretty much every search system I’m aware of will return that note, except for Tinderbox. Of course, they don’t have agents. But I admit that I’m not inclined to go, “Hrm, it didn’t find anything for ‘Vancouver doctors’, let me just knock out a quick agent…”
($Name.icontains('vancouver') & $Name.icontains('doctor')) | ($Text.icontains('vancouver') & $Text.icontains('doctor'))
There’s just a really big gap between command-f (which is fast, but highly specific in how it matches notes), and writing an agent to perform what appears to be a simple search.
Is there a slick search mechanism I’m totally missing? How do other people solve the problem of “quickly find me notes that have these two words in them” ?
