How do I search inside a note?

On Desktop:

Use the note search box in the notes panel to enter your search query, then press enter. Your search term will be highlighted in any resulting note.

On Web:

Use your browser's built in search functionality (typically via Cmd/Ctrl + F) to search inside your note.

On Mobile:

In-note search is not available on mobile.

Tip: You can use the Markdown Minimist extension on desktop for dedicated in-note searching. The search box can be toggled via Cmd/Ctrl + F.
