Searching in Secure Notes

MrtnMrtn
in iOS

Greetings!

First of all, sorry if this has already been asked here. I could not find any trace of this topic so I thought I'd ask. My question: is there an option to search within secure notes on iOS? Recently, I moved my notes from the standard iOS Notes app to 1Password as I figured they'd be safer there. I have no complaints other than the apparent lack of the search function within secure notes - a feature I'm used to using in the regular iOS Notes app. Am I missing something here?

Thanks in advance!

P.S. Why do notes jump to the middle of the document when you open them? My notes are relative long and I always have to scroll to the beginning manually when I wish to add a new line.


1Password Version: 7.5.3
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: iOS 13.5.1
Sync Type: iCloud

    Hi @Mrtn!

    I have just tried searching some text in my 1Password app on iOS, and the search results returned every note that contained that text, so it should work for you too. Are you using the 1Password search bar for this?

    I am not sure I understand what you mean by this. Would it be possible for you to share with us a short video that shows this behavior?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Yes, I'm aware of the search bar. And it works to the extent that it shows me in which note I can find my search term, but that's it. As far as I can see, I cannot search for a specific phrase within a note.

    The jumping issue: in case there is a long note, when I tap on edit, it jumps to the middle of the text.

    Ah, gotcha. Yes, you are correct that there isn't currently a way to have 1Password highlight where text appears within an item.
