Search fails to find shortened numbers

What I did: I have some longer numbers in my notes. I searched for them partially. Example: 1234567 is in my note.

What happened: Searching for the complete 1234567 works. Search for 123456 (so the 7 is missing) works as well. But if the first "place“ is missing, it fails: 234567 cannot be found.

What I expected: shortening a number from any side should not give different search results.

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):

  • Agenda 2.4
  • macOS 10.14

Yes, this is a current limitation of our search, I’m afraid. The technology we are using only matches the beginning of a word or number, not the middle or end. We hope to improve this in time.

Kind regards,


ok, thanks for the clarification and fast reply.

It took me an hour to figure out why I couldn’t find those notes and I was seriously questioning my abilities to do a simple search :smiley:
