One of the most highly requested features is now here: the ability to search notes! Notes search allows you to do things like:

  • Find all notes you’ve sent to a specific deviant
  • Find all notes from a deviant that contain a keyword
  • Search for a keyword within a custom folder
  • Find all unread notes that contain a keyword
  • Search your drafts
To search your notes, simply enter a keyword in the search box. You can also use the advanced search dropdown to filter your search results.

Advanced Operators

Advanced operators can help you narrow your search:
  • subject:keyword — Find notes with a keyword in the subject. Example: subject:commission.
  • body:keyword — Find notes with a keyword in the body. Example: body:painting.
  • " " (quotes) — Search for an exact phrase. Example: "art gallery".
  • (hyphen) — Used to exclude notes that contain a keyword. Example: painting -digital.

Visit Your Notes


Note: Currently, search is limited to the past year of your notes. We hope to expand this in the future.

I can't wait for notes search history to be expanded, the oldest I can look up are from January. I have to find 1 chain by hand in a sea of 1,800 lol

can you upgrade the note search cause I can't find any of the notes I want to check out regardless if I type in the keywords and I still have the notes.

They really need to have note searches go back longer than a year, though. The first year is almost up.

Hey, I noticed after a year notes don't show up on searches. Is there a way to have searches show up for times more than a year? I ask because I am now archiving some old Note threads of me and my best friends! It would be a shame to lose it. (Although thankfully they are still around in Note history, but finding certain ones is difficult).

Also, is there a way to search all words at the title of something? It would also help me!

:icondanlev:, I have another suggestion: Comment Search, and delete a comment, the ability to search through your notifications, delete them directly at any time you want to.

IMPORTANT QUESTION: How can I search notes older than a year? I was looking for something I knew I had in a certain folder, used the search, but it didn't find it. So I did a manual search and found it fine. :hmm: I also used the correct term(s) when trying the search.

Another Question: How can I paste into the search field?? :-?
