GoodNotes lets you search for your notes. Here is what is being indexed, and therefore can be found:
- handwritten notes
- typed text
- text in PDF documents (must support OCR)
- document titles
- folder names
There are two ways how to search for your notes.
1. Search from Search Tab across all notes
To search across all notes, open the Search tab in the library and type in keywords in the search field. Tapping on a result will take you to the desired spot.
2. Searching in an open document
You can search for keywords in a particular document. Open that document and tap on the magnifying glass in the upper left of the nav bar. Type in your keyword and tap Search. Tapping on the result will take you to the desired spot.
Setting the right default language
Make sure to set the correct language for searching and converting your notes. This can be done in the user menu under Settings > Search.
