Advanced search options in Bear

To help you find the right notes when you need them, Bear supports a variety of special search commands, operators, and something we call Special Searches.

Search operators

You can search an exact word sequence by enclosing your sentence with two quote characters ". For example:

"John Appleseed was here"

To exclude specific words from search result, use the minus symbol -. For example, if you want to search for every recipe without broccoli, you can type:

recipes -broccoli

The minus operator can be also used with quoted sentences or Special Searches. For example:

-"John Appleseed" or -@code

That will search for notes containing the exact phrase of John Appleseed or code snippets. Learn more about special searches below.

Special Searches

Bear also comes with some special search tokens you can use to filter your notes:

These Special Searches can be combined with any search term for more specific results. For example: @images @todo “bear faq” will search for all the notes that have images, uncompleted todos, and the exact phrase of bear faq.

Dates for @cdate and @date can be expressed in the ISO8061 format @date(2018-12-23) or according to your device’s local date format, for example @date(23/12/2018) in the U.S.A.
