Why can't I find the text using in my notes after I upload them to Evernote?
If you have recently uploaded your notes to Evernote but it appears the search function is not working properly, it may be that the notes images have not been processed yet.
For Premium users you should be able to search your notes in the Evernote Web app within 4 hours of uploading them.
Free Evernote accounts will take longer to process uploaded images. Typically within 24 to 72 hours the notes should be searchable in the Evernote Web app.
To search using the PC or Mac Evernote Desktop app, wait for the note images to process on the web and then use the Desktop "Sync" function to make those notes searchable on the Desktop as well.
