A More Powerful Search

Today we are excited to launch a more powerful search experience in Notejoy, helping you to more quickly find exactly what you are looking for.

We've expanded search to include comments, we've introduced powerful search operators to help you precisely refine your query, and we now allow you to quickly toggle through each keyword match in a note.

New keyboard shortcut

You can now more quickly access search by pressing Cmd + / (Mac) or Ctrl + / (Win). This is faster than our previous shortcut of / as you no longer have to first hit Esc if the editor is currently in focus.

Toggle through keyword matches

Notejoy has always highlighted exactly where your search keywords show up throughout each note. Now you can quickly toggle through each match by pressing Cmd+▼, Cmd+▲ (Mac) or Ctrl+▼, Ctrl+▲ (Win). Reviewing search results has never been faster, as you just hit ▼ to toggle through each note and now Cmd+▼ to toggle through each keyword match.

Search comments

We now also search comments in Notejoy. By default, search results that match a comment on a note will automatically be included. If you only want to search comments, simply include comment:<keyword> in your query.

Search operators

We've introduced a powerful set of search operators to allow you to precisely refine your query.
